With the goal of making 60% of its trucks electric, DHL is accelerating its strategy with a major investment that will reduce the carbon footprint of its operations.

Road to Emissions Reduction

Robertson explained that another of DHL’s goals is to achieve zero-emission package delivery logistics with the inclusion of electrified fleets.

Deutsche Post DHL Group‘s strongest brand is DHL, which offers parcel services, freight forwarding, supply chain management and e-commerce logistics solutions.

The Group employs approximately 590,000 people in more than 220 countries and territories around the world.

Mexico Progress

In 2022, DHL announced an investment of US$3.6 million earmarked for the purchase of 50 100% electric Renault Master E-TECH units and their necessary infrastructure, to triple the number of electrified units in Mexico.

The move was framed within the GoGreen plan that DHL is following globally to achieve the goal of zero emissions by 2050 and become the logistics industry’s benchmark for responsible business practices.
