Dachser designates 12 European city centres for EV deliveries

Dachser has delivered details on the scheduled expansion of the ‘Dachser Emission-Free Delivery’ scheme. The company now designates twelve, and not ten, more major cities in Europe to roll out deliveries with electric vehicles throughout 2025.

Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin, Hamburg, Cologne, London, Malaga, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Toulouse, Warsaw and Vienna all made it to the list, specifically in low-emission areas being defined across Europe.

In addition, Dachser will expand the existing zero-emission delivery area in Paris. Apart from the French capital, Berlin, Freiburg, Stuttgart, Munich, Dortmund, Copenhagen, Oslo, Prague, Strasbourg, Madrid, and Porto already benefit from electric vehicles fleets revolving around Dachser’s “microhubs”. These depots serve, for example, as starting points for cargo bikes to carry goods into busy pedestrian zones. E-trucks, in turn, supply the hubs with goods or parcels and pallets that are too large or heavy for bike transport.

“Geography, social structure, administration: each city has its own unique profile, which we take into account when planning and implementing a zero-emission delivery area,” explains Tara Li, Project Manager Dachser Emission-Free Delivery. “At the same time, we can draw on our experience gained in twelve European cities to identify synergies and potential for optimization.”

Dachser reportedly announced the expansion in February without naming cities. Once this next stage is completed, the ‘Dachser Emission-Free Delivery’ project will cover 24 urban centres in Europe.

“We deliberately set ourselves the ambitious goal of doubling the number of cities served by Dachser Emission-Free Delivery by the end of 2025,” says Alexander Tonn, COO of Road Logistics at Dachser. “Our network locations are highly motivated to meet our customers’ desire for more sustainable city deliveries. Achieving our goal is based on our expectations that light electric trucks will become much more readily available and expansion of the charging infrastructure will pick up pace across Europe.”
