DHL Express U.S.: Alternative Vehicles for Manhattan

The new DHL vehicles are part of the company’s comprehensive GoGreen program,
which aims at adding fuel-efficient, hybrid, electric or aerodynamically modified vehicles to
its fleet worldwide. In the past year, DHL has upgraded its delivery vehicles worldwide,
including in several European and Asian countries as well as in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia,
Ecuador and Paraguay in the Americas. DHL was the first logistics company worldwide to
offer a carbon neutral shipping service to its customers which calculates CO2 emissions
produced by the shipment and then offsets them through the support of several external
climate protection projects. GoGreen customers receive a statement for their CO2 neutral
shipments, which they can use in their own value-added chain. In 2010, DHL sent over a
billion GoGreen shipments worldwide, including letters, parcels and express deliveries.
The CO2 emissions from the GoGreen shipments are offset 100 percent with investments
in external climate projects around the globe.

The new green fleet in Manhattan

The multi-million dollar investment in the modern, environmentally-friendly vehicles in New York is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s global GoGreen program. By September 2011, DHL Express will operate 30 battery-powered electric vans (BEV) and 50 hybrid trucks (HEV) that will cut down fossil fuel use and in combination reduce CO2 emissions by more than 50 percent each year in comparison to conventional vehicles. The 80 trucks are being manufactured in the U.S. by Azure Dynamics, a world leader in the development and production of hybrid electric and electric commercial vehicles. Ford Motor Co. has produced the chassis for these vehicles. The Balance Hybrid Electric vehicle components combine Azure’s hybrid powertrain with a Ford E450 chassis. By converting DHL’s existing Ford E450s into hybrids, the vehicle’s fuel economy will improve by up to 40 percent while emissions will be reduced by about 30 percent. Azure will also integrate its Force Drive electric powertrain into new Ford Transit Connect vans. Using an advanced lithium-ion battery, the van can achieve a range of up to 80 miles on a single charge and can be recharged overnight. The Transit Connect Electric is virtually silent, thus reducing exterior and interior noise, and has zero tailpipe emissions. Deutsche Post DHL
Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL: “Sustainability, especially the reduction of
carbon emissions, is a central aspect of our business and an integral part of our corporate
strategy. As the global leader in logistics we are ideally positioned to foster climate
protection in order to save our environment for future generations. As customers
worldwide are increasingly demanding greener logistics, sustainable business procedures
and initiatives like the one we are launching today will – at the same time – also enhance
the profitability of our business.”

Scott Harrison, CEO of Azure Dynamics
: “DHL’s GoGreen strategy clearly
demonstrates the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint. As a world
leader in logistics, DHL understands the challenges facing commercial vehicle fleet
operators as well as anyone in the industry. We qre honored by DHL’s selection of Azure
Dynamics’ Transit Connect Electric and Balance Hybrid Electric to help achieve the
unique environmental, operational and performance goals that they seek.”
