COLOGNE: August 31, 2019. Deutsche Post (DP) has taken delivery of its 10,000th electric delivery vehicle from manufacturing subsidiary StreetScooter in a bid to save 36,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.

As the largest private operator of a charging network in Germany, DP's emission-free fleet is complemented by 12,000 e-bikes and e-trikes supported by 13,500 charging stations compared to the country’s total of 20,650 public and semi-public plug-ins.

Andreas Pinkwart with Tobias Meyer DP Board of Management Post Parcel Germany“The StreetScooters also enable us to create more occupational health and safety among our employees,” noted Tobias Meyer, Deutsche Post Board of Management member who oversees Post & Parcel Germany.

“The vehicle has a number of features that promote the acceptance of the vehicle by colleagues, including a design that enables employees to more easily climb into and out of the truck during the many delivery stops it makes and the high loading sill that helps protect employees’ backs. This is an obvious benefit of our decision to incorporate delivery employees into the design process,” he continued.

Andreas Pinkwart, the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) Economics minister, presented the latest StreetScooter that will be used in DHL’s parcel-delivery operations in Cologne.

“The StreetScooter is a unique success story for electro-mobility in NRW and is the result of a close working relationship between entrepreneurial researchers and an major innovative company that is determined to make its logistics operations more climate friendly. This example impressively demonstrates the deep level of entrepreneurial creativity found in the state,” declared Pinkwart.

Deutsche Post operates 1,750 StreetScooters in NRW, 1,400 in Bavaria and 1,200 in both Baden-Württemberg and Lower Saxony. The company wants to reduce all its logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.
