DHL, one of the largest logistics firms in the world, builds its own electric vehicles for its fleet, but is also now emerging as an EV supplier with the announcement that UK home delivery business Milk & More has now placed an initial order of 200 electric vehicles from them.
Milk delivery is still fairly popular in the UK where “Milk & More makes more than 1.5 million deliveries to over 500,000 households each week”.
Now, they are going start making these deliveries with DHL’s electric Streetscooter vehicle.
Patrick Müller, Managing Director of Milk & More said, “We wanted to make this unique tradition relevant again to the requirements of today’s customers. In order to do this, we need a local product portfolio, new IT systems as well as reliable, quiet and environmentally friendly vehicles. In the StreetScooter, we have found the ideal vehicle for our needs."
