DHL Buys 2,000 Ford E-Transit Vans

DHL Ford-E-Transit

Truly impactful buy-in to EV technology comes from fleets, and shipping company DHL will be getting 2,000 electric cargo vans by the end of next year.

Ford Motor Company partnered with DHL to use Ford E-Transit vans in Europe and the Americas for last-mile deliveries. Back in 2021, DHL had already added around 100 electric Transit 350 vans that had been converted from diesel power to electric powertrains. It’s not a fully electrified fleet yet, but it is a start.

“Electrification of last mile logistics is a major pillar to decarbonize our operations. Adding the new Ford E-Transit to our global fleet of around 27,000 electric vans further strengthens our capability of providing green delivery services worldwide. Joining forces to address our logistics specific requirements will drive operational and service efficiency further,” said Anna Spinelli, Deutsche Post DHL Group’s chief procurement officer.

DHL joins multiple delivery companies in using more electric vehicles in their fleets. Amazon already has more than 1,000 Rivian vans making deliveries in the U.S., and both FedEx and Walmart use BrightDrop Zevo 600 vans too.
