In order to meet the challenges of inner-city delivery and to offer its customers practical delivery options, DPDgroup is continuously implementing responsible and sustainable solutions. These solutions will enable it to become the leader in urban delivery in Europe, thanks to its innovative services, last-mile logistics and user-centric delivery solutions.
Offsetting its carbon footprint since 2012, the entire DPDgroup network is reducing its impact on climate change through a three-step approach:
- Reducing the impact of our fleet of last-mile delivery vehicles;
- Developing delivery solutions that improve the daily lives of our customers;
- Setting up urban depots to avoid unnecessary distances.
Attentive to the specific needs of each city, DPDgroup uses its expertise to deploy urban depots and alternative fleets accordingly:
Working with local authorities to anticipate and react quickly to new standards and legislation.
Setting up urban depots near areas of high density
Alternative, low-emission delivery fleets consisting of electric and natural gas vehicles and cargo bicycles
Reducing our CO2 emissions per parcel delivered by 15.2% between 2013 and 2018 with the objective of a further 30% reduction by 2025.
The group's actions in this area have produced remarkable results: fewer particulate emissions in the cities served, less traffic on our roads and less time spent waiting for a parcel.
