Mercedes eSprinter for DPD: Logistician relies on electricity
Electromobility is increasingly gaining a foothold in the logistics sector. The use of battery-powered small vans makes sense for transport companies, especially in cities. After a pilot project started in 2020 went well, the logistics service provider DPD is now expanding its fleet by 150 Mercedes eSprinters, which will be stationed at the depot locations in Hamburg, Essen and Nuremberg.
“We are very proud to expand our electric fleet by 150 eSprinters and to actively use them in urban deliveries. For us, the use of high-performance e-transporters is an important component of our goal of continuously reducing transport emissions,” says Sarah Keller, Group Manager Corporate Delivery Management at DPD Germany. The parcel service operates 79 depots throughout Germany. Around 13,000 transport over 400 million parcels every day.
