Press Release: Jakarta, Indonesia, 11 May 2022

  • The deployment of the two electric vans in Indonesia will further boost the company’s contribution to reducing carbon emissions
  • DHL began electrifying its fleet in 2021 with the introduction of six electric motorbikes 

DHL Express, the world’s leading international express service provider, has acquired two electric vans in Indonesia, as part of its efforts to help meet Deutsche Post DHL Group’s goal of reducing all logistics-related emissions and promoting green logistics.

These new electric vehicles can travel up to 150 km and carry up to 4.8 cubic meters of load. They will be deployed to deliver shipments in Central Business District areas in Jakarta. In addition to reducing carbon emissions compared with conventional commercial vehicles, these e-vans are also powered by lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are safer and less noisy when used.

Ahmad Mohamad, Senior Technical Advisor DHL Express Indonesia said,” We hope to play our part and contribute meaningfully to the common goal of limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius. As the world’s leading logistics company, we also want to lead by example by making our logistics green. Our e-vehicles underscore our commitment towards our zero-emissions goal as well as to achieving more sustainable operations. We will continue to expand our e-fleet to other cities, and invest in other low-carbon solutions, such as e-trucks and solar panels for our facilities across Indonesia.”

In 2021, DHL Express Indonesia introduced green initiatives with the addition of six electric motorbikes to strengthen its fleet in Jakarta and Surabaya. These e-bikes will help couriers become more efficient in their pick-ups and deliveries, as the vehicles’ agility circumvent issues around traffic congestion whilst emitting less carbon emission.

According to the climate transparency report in 2020, the transportation sector contributes to almost 27%[1] of the total carbon emission in Indonesia. Considering logistics as the backbone of the economy, this sector has a responsibility and a role to play in reducing carbon footprint.

As announced in its Sustainability Roadmap, Deutsche Post DHL Group will invest a total of EUR 7 billion until 2030 in CO2 reduction measures, including the expansion of its zero-emission e-vehicle fleet.
