1,500 electric vehicles for eco-friendly deliveries
Mercedes-Benz Vans and Hermes are setting up a strategic partnership to develop technologies and services for the Hermes fleet.
The logistics and parcel service provider Hermes Germany will gradually begin to deploy 1,500 Mercedes-Benz electric vans for its parcel deliveries from 2018 on. The company wants to provide emission free deliveries in all major cities in Germany by 2025.
In addition, the two companies are planning to jointly develop a concept for efficient battery-charging infrastructure at Hermes logistics centres, and IT services for optimum control of the electric vehicle fleet. (ben)
