By 2025, Dachser intends to implement emission-free delivery zones in at least ten additional major European cities. According to the logistics services provider, electric cars are now being used to make deliveries of ordinary cargo and uncooled packages in twelve cities.
This is the case in the delivery regions of Berlin, Freiburg, Stuttgart, Munich, Dortmund, Copenhagen, Oslo, Prague, Strasbourg, Paris, Madrid, and Porto. Other cities where this is the case include Copenhagen, Oslo, Prague, Strasbourg, Paris, and Madrid. To fulfill the community's needs, completely battery-operated vans, vehicles, and cargo bikes with electrically assisted pedaling are utilized.
In 2021, Dachser announced that it would provide emission-free delivery in eleven EU cities by the end of 2022; the most recent report indicates that the number has since increased to twelve. Twenty-two cities will be included in the trial project by the year 2024.
According to Stefan Hohm, Chief Development Officer, "With Dachser Emission-Free Delivery, we have demonstrated that we can deliver general freight over the last mile with zero emissions." The results of the study project have been put into effect, and they pave the way toward more environmentally friendly municipal operations.
Alexander Tonn, Chief Operations Officer for Road Logistics at Dachser, "The production capacities of the vehicle manufacturers have been greatly improved, so we foresee better availability of electric trucks in the future." We are consequently preparing with at least ten other cities by the year 2025, and by doing so, we are catering to the desires of many clients. According to the firm, the primary focus is on metropolitan areas in Europe with at least one million people. Dachser is already established with its European Logistics business unit branches.
