DPD UK Adds 1,000 Ford E-Transits to Its Fleet
Parcel delivery firm DPD UK will receive 1,000 E-Transit vans this year, which will take its electric vehicle (EV) fleet to over 2,500 in total.
DPD UK has purchased the 3.5 t, 135 kwh, long wheelbase version with 12.4 m3 of load space. The vans will operate from depots right across the UK and DPD took delivery of the first E-Transits in May.
“Getting our hands on the electric Ford Transit feels like a really big moment. 3.5 t vans are the workhorse of any delivery fleet, and we are no different. We’ve said all along that we need the main commercial van manufacturers to step-up with affordable models and large scale production of right-hand drive vans to really get the EV revolution going in the UK. And Ford have done just that. The E-Transit is well priced, has a good range and comes with all the support you would expect from Ford,” commented Olly Craughan, Head of Sustainability, DPD UK.
DPD UK is a member of DPDgroup, the largest parcel delivery network in Europe. DPDgroup is the parcel delivery network of GeoPost, a holding company owned by France’s La Poste. The company operates more than 10,000 vehicles from 84 locations and delivers over 400 million parcels a year.
