DHL Express has announced a new partnership with Fiat Professional and purchased 100 new Fiat E-Ducato vans for its fleet in Europe.

According to DHL, this forms part of its plan to add more than 14,000 e-vehicles to its fleet, with 60% electrified, by 2030.

Its current fleet in Europe is around 14,500 strong—14,000 non-electric vehicles, and just 500 electric vans—with an expected count of approximately 20,000 vans by 2030. This means it’s aiming for around 14,000 electric vehicles by the target date.

DHL’s purchase is the first of Fiat’s new model, which was revealed to the public just last week. The E-Ducatos are completely electric, with batteries that will run for around 200km, making them ideal for last-mile deliveries, which take place mainly in urban and metropolitan areas.

However, the E-Ducatos have been trialed in a range of extreme operating conditions, such as cold temperatures, steep inclines, and long distances.

Deutsche Post DHL Group, DHL Express’ parent company, is investing €7 billion in measures to reduce carbon emissions by 2030. The company’s strategy includes sustainable aviation fuel and climate-neutral buildings, as well as electric vehicles.
