DB SCHENKER in Indonesia acquires Electric Van for inner city deliveries
DB Schenker, one of the worlds leading logistics service providers, is proud to introduce its first electric van in Indonesia at an exclusive launch event in Bekasi, West Java. The electric van will hit the roads, catering to the growing demands of businesses in Jakarta, starting July 2023. DB Schenker aims to achieve CO2-neutrality by 2040, which involves neutralizing emissions across its entire supply chain. As DB Schenker continues this journey, the integration of the first Electric van enables the Logistics Service Provider to offer the local economy a green option for their logistics.
Nurul Ajeng, Land Transport Director of DB Schenker Indonesia: “By embracing electric vans, we take a proactive approach to address air and noise pollution in Jakarta. This is just the beginning as we recognize much more is needed to combat the city’s severe pollution challenges. By investing in sustainable technology, we also set a new benchmark for the logistics industry in Indonesia, encouraging the adoption of eco-friendly solutions. We are proud to be among the forerunners in taking accountability for our country’s environmental wellbeing.”
Electrifying truck fleets has a great potential to tackle the serious problem of air pollution in heavily polluted cities like Jakarta. Currently ranked third on the list of the most polluted cities by the Air Quality monitoring institute IQAir*, Jakarta can benefit greatly from the adoption of electric vehicles. Compared to conventional trucks, the electric van emits 50-60% less CO2, making a significant positive impact on the air quality. By utilizing the network of charging stations and leveraging sustainable operations, DB Schenker can deliver customers’ shipments swiftly and reliably while reducing their carbon footprint.
Besides the benefits for the environment, the electric van is also more efficient and safer. With a range of up to 250 km on a single charge, it ensures efficient and reliable deliveries. The van optimizes energy usage, with an energy consumption of only 14.2 kWh/100km, making it a cost-efficient solution for customers.
