Ford Pro, Ford’s global vehicle services and distribution business, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Deutsche Post DHL Group to provide the logistics company with all-electric delivery vans.
Ford will deliver over 2000 electric delivery vans to DHL by the end of 2023. Some of DHL’s new electric delivery vehicles will be the two-ton E-Transit model. These commercial vans will come with Ford Pro’s connected E-Telematics software and charging solutions, designed to make it easier for fleet operators to coordinate charging and other changes required by shifting to zero-emission EVs.
The electric vans are part of DHL’s zero-emission logistics efforts that will eventually reduce emissions from delivery vehicles “around the globe.”
