DPD has expanded its inexperienced fleet after agreeing a deal with Ford for 1,000 E-Transit vans. It will just take DPD’s electric powered motor vehicle (EV) fleet to above 2,500 in whole.

The 3.5t, 135kwh, extended-wheelbase vans have 12.4 cubic metres of load room and will function from depots throughout the United kingdom community from this month.

The Ford E-Transit buy is aspect of DPD’s environmentally friendly pledge.  In addition to jogging above 2,500 electrical automobiles in the United kingdom, DPD has also invested in a collection of recycling and circular economic climate initiatives.

Olly Craughan, head of sustainability, DPDgroup Uk, claimed: “Getting our hands on the electric powered Ford Transit feels like a seriously large minute. 3.5t vans are the workhorse of any shipping and delivery fleet, and we are no unique. We have reported all along that we need to have the principal business van producers to stage up with inexpensive styles and huge-scale creation of appropriate-hand travel vans to really get the EV revolution heading in the Uk. And Ford have finished just that.

“People really respect what we are carrying out with electric motor vehicles and all our other environmentally friendly initiatives. It is the same with our large retail prospects much too.  They want to see their parcels shipped on inexperienced DPD vans, because they know their consumers recognize it far too.”
