Steve Huang, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding China, said, "The climate crisis is top of mind today. We can no longer neglect the impact of our business operations on the environment. The transportation sector emits about 30 percent of CO2 generated by truck traffic. However, new technology and the development of sustainable fuels are providing us with more options to reduce and eliminate emissions. Deploying electric vehicles is an important step in expanding our green footprint."
The successful deployment of the electric vehicles is made possible by the strong support from Worldex Logistics and Reach-Wing Logistics, DHL's strategic partners in China responding to last-mile pickup and delivery, sharing the vision of making logistics and transportation greener.
The DPDHL Group will invest Euro 7 billion until 2030 in clean operations to reduce our emissions to under 29 million tons by 2030 as part of the Science Based Targets Initiative. That includes increasing the usage of sustainable fuels in both air and ocean freight for our shipments, and electrifying 60% of last-mile delivery vehicles.
