Ford to deliver 2,000 electric vans to DHL Group

Ford Pro will equip Deutsche Post DHL Group with more than 2,000 electric delivery vans by the end of 2023 for last mile delivery worldwide. The inked agreement covers a full suite of solutions to operate the electric fleet including access to Ford Pro’s connected E-Telematics software and charging solutions.

Ford is targeting zero emissions for all vehicle sales and carbon neutrality across its European footprint of facilities, logistics and suppliers by 2035, and carbon neutrality globally no later than 2050. Deutsche Post DHL Group is targeting a share of 60% of electric vehicles used for carbon-neutral pick-up and delivery by 2030.

Ford Pro has already handed over its first E-Transits under the agreement, joining Deutsche Post DHL Group’s electric fleet used for last mile deliveries in several countries worldwide. The order volume concentrates on the E-Transit panel vans designed for handling express shipments in the Americas and Europe.

The Memorandum of Understanding, signed by Ford and Deutsche Post DHL Group, will potentially allow both companies to explore the co-development of future products as well as new digital and charging solutions. In addition to providing early access to innovative ideas, Ford Pro will also deliver Deutsche Post DHL Group access to test vehicles and monitoring services as the two companies explore expanding their cooperation to a growing number of markets globally.
