DHL Express adds EP electric forklifts to fleet

DHL Express has added to their extensive fleet with new EP electric powered forklift trucks. The EP counterbalance electric forklift, in both 4 wheel and 3 wheel configurations are now available with lithium power at a similar price point as traditional lead acid electric, or even gas and diesel forklifts.

This move comes as part of DHL’s wider strategy to reduce its environmental footprint as it sets out to become “the most environmentally-friendly provider”.

The delivery supplier has also introduced 10 new electric courier vans in London in the first stage of its plan to run 400 electric vehicles on its UK-wide fleet by 2025.

Richard Crook, director of fleet at DHL Express, said: “In our ambition to become the most environmentally-friendly provider on the market we have to balance the needs of customers with protecting and respecting the planet".

“Recent innovations within battery range and battery technology mean we can now deploy these more sustainable vehicles as part of our fleet and be confident in their ability to meet operational requirements, reducing our reliance on internal combustion engines.”
