MOVIN, a prominent logistics brand, formed as a joint venture between UPS and InterGlobe Enterprises, is making significant strides in promoting sustainable logistics solutions by introducing its second fleet of Electric Vehicles (EVs) for first and last-mile deliveries in Bengaluru, India. This initiative follows the successful rollout of the first EV fleet in Delhi NCR earlier this year and is part of MOVIN’s broader mission to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to long-term sustainability objectives.
MOVIN’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable logistics is the driving force behind its growing adoption of EVs in its operational fleet. By transitioning to electric vehicles for first and last-mile deliveries, MOVIN aims to make a positive and environmentally responsible choice that will significantly reduce carbon emissions, minimize ecological impact, and exemplify the brand’s dedication to a cleaner and more sustainable future. Additionally, this shift is expected to result in substantial cost savings over time due to reduced fuel and maintenance expenses, prompting MOVIN to further expand its electric vehicle fleet in key markets in the coming months.
The deployment of EVs in MOVIN’s logistics operations is anticipated to lead to a reduction of 200 tons of CO2 emissions within the next 12 months. Each EV in the fleet is capable of towing up to 850 kg and boasts a remarkable single-charge range of 120 kilometers.
JB Singh, Director of MOVIN Express, expressed the brand’s commitment to accelerating the adoption of clean energy mobility solutions. He emphasized MOVIN’s dedication to driving positive change in the logistics industry with a strong focus on sustainability, community, and technology. Singh sees the transition to an electric fleet for first and last-mile deliveries as a progressive move, symbolizing MOVIN’s unwavering commitment to environmental responsibility and its ambition to lead in sustainable logistics, contributing to a greener and cleaner future. The company has ambitious plans to continue electrifying its fleet across various cities in the coming months.
