Ford Pro and Deutsche Post DHL Group have signed a letter of intent to use more electric vans to transport goods worldwide. With this, both companies promise to provide good services for the environment.
Ford Pro will give Deutsche Post DHL Group more than 2,000 electric vans to show the planned partnership by 2023. This will make it even more likely that the world's best logistics company will be the first to use electric vans to deliver goods on the "last mile."
The letter of intent also lists many ways to manage a fleet of all-electric cars. These include Ford Pro's connected E-Telematics software and charging solutions to cut costs and improve efficiency.
Ford's goal is that by 2035, all of the company's factories, distribution, and suppliers, as well as the cars it sells in Europe, will be carbon neutral. The goal for the whole world is to have no carbon emissions by 2050.
Deutsche Post DHL Group, one of the biggest logistics companies in the world, has promised to put more effort and money into protecting the environment. It will spend 7 billion euros this decade to reach its goal of net-zero emissions from freight transport. Their goal is for 60% of their car fleet to be all-electric cars that can provide carbon-neutral pickup and delivery during 2030. Now, they will also use electric vehicles from Ford Pro, like the new E-Transit.
Ford Pro and Deutsche Post DHL Group share the vision of more sustainability and electrified solutions. This agreement is a big step toward electric cars worldwide, making millions of deliveries in the future. The Ford E-Transit electric van is already the best-selling electric commercial vehicle in North America and has been the best-seller in its European segment since June. This means that the 2-tonne van is already helping to achieve this ambition.
To get rid of carbon from our transportation, it is imperative to electrify the "last mile." With the new Ford E-Transit and more than 27,000 electric vans worldwide, Ford has more chances to deliver goods greenly worldwide. Ford's operations and services will be even better if we work together to solve our specific logistics needs.
The first Ford E-Transit has already been sent to Deutsche Post DHL Group in several countries around the world by Ford Pro. These will be used during the busiest time of the year, before Christmas. Most orders are for Ford E-Transit electric vans, which are especially made for fast deliveries in the United States and Europe.
The letter of intent allows both companies to look into the possibility of working together to make new products, digital solutions, and charging solutions. Deutsche Post DHL Group will also have access to test vehicles and other services from Ford Pro. Both companies want to offer more services in a growing global market. @via Deutsche Post DHL Group.
