DHL Express expands electric van fleet

DHL Express is planning to introduce 320 more electric vehicles into its UK fleet by end of 2022.

The business has just introduced 50 new electric vans into its UK fleet – including a batch of Mercedes-Benz Sprinters – with an extra 50 EVs due to be introduced before the end of the year, and 220 more planned before the end of 2022.

These new vans will be deployed across the UK this year, in cities including Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.

DHL Express is also investing in electric charging infrastructure at over 20 locations which is scalable to allow for the extra EVs that will be added to each site in the future.

It wants 100. per cent of its UK-wide courier vehicle fleet to be electric by 2030.

DHL Express initially started to roll out electric vans in the UK in 2019 with a delivery of Renault Master Z.E vans in London.
