80 additional electric vehicles at once
DHL Express is to add 80 electric vehicles (EVs) to its Singapore fleet, in partnership with land transport specialist Comfort Del Gro. Together with the ten EVs that are already in its fleet, DHL Express will have a total of 90 EVs on Singapore’s roads by October 2022.
DHL Express Singapore will also be investing close to SGD 8 million (EUR 5.47 million) into electrifying its fleet over the next five years. Part of this investment amount goes towards a five-year EV leasing and maintenance agreement with Comfort Del Gro's car leasing subsidiary for 80 electric vans.
Another part of the investment will support the installation of 105 charging points across its service centres, and 25 more EVs of other vehicle types. (ben)
