DPD Ireland’s all-electric depot opens

DPD Ireland’s new all-electric depot, ElectriCity, officially launched at Dockland’s Innovation Park, East Wall Road, Dublin 3 on April 30.

Richard Bruton, Minister for Communications, Climate Change and the Environment, Dwain McDonald, Chairman of DPD Ireland and CEO DPDgroup UK, and Des Travers, CEO DPD Ireland cut the red ribbon to unveil the new and distinctive electric fleet.

Operating a fleet of Paxsters, LDVs and Goupils, the bright DPD electric vehicles are instantly recognisable with their fresh new livery. DPD’s Paxsters can easily move throughout the city streets while the LDVs, and Goupils are ideal for bigger parcels.

The Launch of ElectriCity is the latest of DPD’s initiatives on “Smart Urban Delivery”. Its electric depot is the first of its kind in Ireland and will help DPD save 20,000 tonnes of carbon annually.
