DHL Express orders 12 zero-emission eCargoes

DHL Express orders 12 eCargo Alice from Seattle-based aircraft manufacturer Eviation, becoming the first company to equip itself with fully electric and zero-emission aircraft.

Let's not forget that the DHL group's goal is to achieve the decarbonisation of its activities also thanks to important investments of 7 billion euros by 2030 in indispensable measures to reduce CO2 emissions. It will therefore be fundamental to start from the electrification of the entire fleet for deliveries.

With two 634 kW engines powered by an 820 kWh battery pack, an autonomy of up to 815 km and a cruising speed of approximately 400 km / h, the Alice eCargo electric plane is capable of carrying a load of 1,200 kilograms.

My compliments to Eviation for the development of the innovative Alice eCargo plane. This is a fantastic sustainable solution for our transportation network. Our aspiration is to make a substantial contribution to reducing our carbon footprint and these advances in fleet and technology will go a long way towards achieving further reductions. For us and our customers, this is a very important step in our decarbonisation journey and a step forward for the aviation industry as a whole, these are the words of Travis Cobb, EVP Global Network Operations and Aviation at DHL Express.

According to reports, Eviation has confirmed that it will deliver 12 zero-emission Alice eCargoes starting in 2024.

We firmly believe in a future with zero emissions logistics. Our investments always follow the objective of improving our ecological footprint. In our journey towards sustainable logistics, the electrification of each mode of transport plays a crucial role and will contribute significantly to our overall sustainability goal of zero emissions, commented enthusiastically John Pearson, head of DHL Express.
