DHL Express, the world’s leading international express service provider, recently announced the addition of six electric vans in Malaysia.
DHL Express Plans to Add Another 55 EVs
These vehicles are already on the roads across the Klang Valley for last-mile deliveries. The introduction marks the company as the first in the country to transition towards a commercial electric vehicle (EV) fleet.
The new vans were deployed in early October, serving the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor areas. DHL plans to add a further 55 EVs to bring the total number to 61 by 2023. These additional vehicles would be deployed in other states nationwide.
“Logistics operations efficiency, innovation and sustainability are at the forefront of our agenda,” said Sean Wall, Executive Vice President, Network Operations and Aviation, DHL Express Asia Pacific. “While improving our service capabilities to exceed rapidly evolving customer demands, we remain aware of our responsibility to the environment and strive towards clean operations. Electric delivery vans represent the future of our global green network and drive our climate-neutral goals.”
Distributed by R&A Marketing Sdn Bhd of Sendok Group, the fully-electric CAM EC35 has a cargo space of 4.8m³ with a payload of more than one tonne, similar to that in the internal combustion engine vans it is replacing. It requires eight hours to be fully charged for a travel distance up to 266 kilometres. With direct current (DC) fast charging (at up to 40kW), the time is reduced to 2.5 hours. An anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) are among the standard features that enhance the couriers’ safety and driving experience as they cover their daily routes…..
