The mission of zero emissions logistics is supported by interim milestones including the introduction of clean transport solutions; we are working to reduce local air pollutants and many customers will have experienced their end of mile deliveries arriving by bike or electric vehicle.
When it comes to helping our customers, we are facilitating the design of environmentally friendly supply chains and supporting switches to climate neutral shipping solutions through our GoGreen service. We are training our employees to become certified GoGreen specialists so they can advise customers on how we can make the future greener together.
Our vision to deploy a fleet of zero-emission electric vans finally became a reality in London in August 2019. DHL Express has been exploring many ways of delivering in city centres using alternative fuels, deploying couriers on e-bikes and on foot; however what is exciting about these new electric vans is they are the first vehicles that will give us full direct load capability, meaning they’ll be a direct replacement for our standard DHL delivery vehicle. They’ll do up to 75 miles on one charge so our view is these will be the first deployment of what will be up to 400+ vehicles within the next 5 years.
Switching to climate neutral shipping is a huge step forward to compensating for greenhouse gas emissions and it might be easier than you think!
You can offset your carbon emissions by choosing to switch to GoGreen logistics with DHL Express. This is a climate neutral shipping option that works with projects to offset the emissions emitted during transporting shipments.
