Already this fall, DPD Lithuania couriers will be using new electric vehicles to deliver parcels in Vilnius. A total of 60 electric vehicles will drive the streets of the capital, replacing the city’s diesel fleet. One fully charged electric car will be able to drive 120 km; charging it will take 5-6 hours.
The company will install a total of 62 charging points for electric cars.
The company with partners will invest about 2 million euros in non-polluting means of transportation and the infrastructure they require – electric vehicle charging stations.
DPD Lithuania’s investment in electric vehicles will mean that 270 fewer tonnes of CO2 will be released into the environment every year.
After the company and partners decided to acquire electric vehicles, support was also provided from the Climate Change Programme coordinated by Environmental Projects Management Agency under the Ministry of Environment.
We all share the #SameAddress
In 2020, we delivered 1.9bn parcels worldwide. But when it comes to protecting future generations and our cherished planet, we all share the same address. That’s why we’ve reduced our CO2 emissions per parcel by 18.8% since 2013 and we’ll reach 30% by 2025, when our delivery vehicles in Europe’s 225 largest cities will be 100% low- emission.
Inspired and guided by the three pillars of our Sustainability approach – ‘People, Planet and Communities’ – DPDgroup is working harder than ever to create a social and environmental legacy that our children can be proud of.
