FedEx Express Canada welcomed its first 50 BrightDrop Zevo 600 electric delivery vehicles at an event in Toronto. The introduction of BrightDrop’s electric vans into the FedEx fleet in Canada is a step in the company’s goal to transform its entire parcel pickup and delivery (PUD) fleet to all-electric, zero-tailpipe emissions vehicles by 2040.
The company said this initial fleet of 50 electric vehicles (EVs) will service Toronto, Montreal and Surrey. FedEx Express Canada said it plans to expand its EV fleet footprint as additional charging infrastructure is implemented at FedEx locations across the country.
“FedEx Express Canada is proud of the role we’re playing to help our company work toward the goal of carbon-neutral operations globally by 2040,” said Dean Jamieson, vice president of operations at FedEx Express Canada. “Working with companies like BrightDrop that are helping to build these solutions.”
