Cycle & Carriage Singapore announced a new partnership with DHL Express, aimed at helping the world's leading international express service provider ramp up on its sustainability efforts by introducing six Citroën ë-Dispatch electric panel vans to their fleet in Singapore.

"We are delighted that the Cycle & Carriage Electric Mobility Solutions team can help facilitate the expansion of a more sustainable fleet of delivery vehicles for DHL Express. Such partnerships allow us to play a part in making the world a greener place, as well as remain relevant to consumers in a climate where sustainability has become a pertinent aspect of business viability and operational efficiency," said Dawn Pan, Director of Multi-Franchise Operations, Cycle & Carriage Singapore.

Companies that require consultation on how to kickstart their electric vehicle adoption in Singapore may tap on Cycle & Carriage's customisable Electric Mobility Solutions services.

This includes sale and leasing options, advice on electric charging options, and turn-key logistics services such as pick-up and delivery. For this partnership, Cycle & Carriage has enlisted the services of its partner, Fulco Leasing, to supply the Citroën ë-Dispatch electric panel vans to DHL Express Singapore.

Launched in November 2021, the Citroën ë-Dispatch van is powered by an all-electric, zero-emissions powertrain as well as intelligent technology that affords greater levels of convenience and environmental friendliness.

The vehicle is expected to help DHL Express achieve a substantial reduction in not just carbon emissions, but also operational costs. Compared to internal combustion engine vehicles, these electric vans can reduce carbon emissions by up to 71%.

They also require less maintenance, which will contribute to improved fleet uptime.

"There has been a noticeable change in EV viability in real-world operations since DHL Express Singapore deployed its first electric vehicle in 2019. Battery technology has improved by leaps and bounds and there are more options for commercial fleets now compared to just two years ago. We are excited to tap into the green benefits offered by the Citroën ë-Dispatch to accelerate our GoGreen journey towards zero emissions by 2050. We have a firm target to convert more than 36% of our courier routes to zero tailpipe emission options by the end of this year," said Christopher Ong, Managing Director, DHL Express Singapore.
