SEUR, the leading delivery company in Spain, has purchased a fleet of 200 Ford E-Transit, the 100% electric version of the world’s best-selling cargo van. This is a new step in the company’s firm commitment to sustainability.
In this regard, both companies share values related to sustainability and the ongoing quest for maximum productivity and efficiency. The relationship between the two companies has therefore been reinforced.
“At FORD PRO we have a very clear goal: to improve uptime and reduce operating costs for companies and professionals. In order to reach this objective, we rely on a wide range of commercial vehicles, on seven years as sales leaders in Europe, and on innovative digital solutions. With productivity and sustainability as two of our main priorities, we are proud to be able to collaborate with SEUR in its goal to be the most sustainable delivery company in Spain",
says Elena Burguete, Director of Ford Pro.
For his part, José Manuel Fernández Pons, Ford Pro Operations Manager, added:
"SEUR's objectives fit perfectly with FORD PRO's present and future plans, spearheaded by the new Ford E-Transit. Thanks to its more than 300 kilometers of autonomy, its 15 m3 of cargo and its connectivity solutions, the E-Transit is the ideal response to the current mobility needs of companies".
According to Benjamín Calzón, SEUR’s Operational Excellence Officer,
“this agreement with FORD reflects one of our company’s goals: to become the most sustainable company in the entire sector. In this sense, 10% of our fleet is already green and, by 2030, we are planning to incorporate 3,000 electric vehicles”.
In the opinion of Itxaso Larrañaga, Chief of People and Sustainability Officer at SEUR,
“FORD and SEUR are two aligned companies since we share the main lines of the sustainability strategy. At SEUR, in terms of electrification, we have electric vehicles, but we have also installed charging stations for the vehicles and solar panels in the warehouses, with very important achievements regarding sustainability”.

SEUR: 80 years of express transportation
SEUR aims to become the international benchmark for sustainable delivery. For this reason, it has launched an ambitious strategy that joins forces with customers, consumers, suppliers and other stakeholders to make a difference with a positive impact on people, our planet and the communities in which it operates. In this regard, by 2025, the company will use low-emission vehicles in 64 Spanish cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants.
The company has also deployed a pioneering program in Madrid and several European cities to measure air quality through sensors installed in delivery vehicles, Pickup stores and urban hubs which, using Pollutrack laser technology, measure the quality of particulate matter in the air in real time, street by street. Low-emission deliveries will also be made in 64 Spanish cities by 2025, reducing CO2 emissions in these cities by around 85%, which will have a direct impact on 17 million inhabitants throughout Spain.
All this is combined, for example, in the range of out-of-home services. These services are alternatives that offer greater flexibility and customization to customers in terms of delivery times and locations for picking up their orders, as well as being an environmentally friendly option. These characteristics represent the Pickup network, which is the number one pickup and return network in Europe, reducing by 63% the CO2 emissions associated with the last mile, while at the same time reducing failed deliveries, and which already has more than 4,000 points between convenience stores and lockers. In addition, SEUR plans to increase this figure to 5,000 points by 2025.
