Parcels delivered by electro-mobility.
For city centre transport operations, the use of e-mobility is now no longer just a prospect for the future. In Hamburg DPD is currently testing two pre-series models of the VW e-Crafter on a number of different delivery tours in the city centre, in St. Pauli and in the Sternschanze district. Thanks to its extensive range and large load capacity, the VW e-Crafter can implement many inner-city delivery tours without difficulty.
Battery-operated vans are have already demonstrated their suitability for parcel deliveries in long-term tests implemented by DPD. In the Stuttgart and Hamburg conurbations DPD has tested 10 Mercedes-Benz Vito E-CELL battery-operated vans.
In addition, in the Stuttgart area DPD launched deliveries by Hybrid-Sprinter in December 2015.
