DHL puts 100 million in electric delivery vans and a new sorting center in the Netherlands

By: Romy de Weert
Courier company DHL is investing 100 million euros in the purchase of electric delivery vans and the construction of a new sorting center in Zwolle. This means that the van fleet will soon be 65 percent electric.

With the purchase of 500 electric delivery vans, 65 percent of the Dutch DHL fleet will soon be electric. In addition, the company is building a new sorting warehouse in Zwolle. This warehouse must become a central point for deliveries to so-called CityHubs.

The CityHubs are places on the outskirts of the city from where an electric delivery bus or bicycle delivers the package to the destination. According to DHL, the new sorting center will be built according to BREEAM, a sustainability certificate for construction. In addition, the location is completely gasless. DHL previously indicated that it would like to deliver the last meters to the door completely emission-free by 2025.

200,000 packages per day
DHL expects the sorting center to be completed in the second half of 2025 and to be able to process 200,000 parcels a day. In total, the new location must offer work to three hundred employees. An existing DHL branch on the Hessenpoort business park in Zwolle will be integrated into the new warehouse.
