Published By Pressat [English], Thu, Jun 23, 2022 6:00 AM
Vattenfall and the delivery company Instabox have started an international collaboration to provide charging infrastructure for Instabox’s electric vehicle fleet. By the end of 2022, Vattenfall will operate approximately 400 charge points on Instabox’s terminals in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands.
Instabox is an international last-mile delivery company that delivers packages for a large number of e-commerce companies.
"We are pleased that Instabox has chosen Vattenfall and Power-as-a-Service for charging infrastructure at its logistics terminals in three countries. Vattenfall is responsible for the entire investment for the charging infrastructure which we own and operate. This means that Instabox can focus on their core business of delivering parcels, while we support their switch to electric vehicles,” says Maria Lindberg, Head of electrified heavy transport at Vattenfall Network Solutions.
Vattenfall's Power-as-a-Service solution provides Instabox with fully managed EV charging facilities at each of their delivery hubs. To this date, Instabox has almost 200 chargers into operation in the three countries and another 200 chargers are planned to be deployed during 2022.
“Electrification of our vehicle fleet is an important part of our sustainability strategy and long term we would like our entire fleet to be electrified. The framework agreement with Vattenfall and the company's Power-as-a-Service solution means that we avoid high investment costs to enable the transition to fossil-free and feel secure in having a partner with the electric power expertise required to install and operate charging infrastructure for a large fleet of electric vehicles”, says Leilei Tong, Head of Sustainability at Instabox.
Vattenfall recently released a new white paper, Delivering power for electric vehicle charging hubs, as a guide for last mile logistics companies. The white paper outlines the processes, considerations, challenges and benefits of switching to a battery-powered fleet, and offers essential insights for last mile logistics companies who are looking to stay competitive while decarbonising their practices.
Delivering power for electric vehicle charging hubs is essential reading for CEOs, CFOs, Fleet and Energy managers within UK businesses which are aiming to achieve the UK's net zero targets and to optimise their energy efficiency and cut costs.
