DPD UK commits to electric deliveries in Oxford

29 July 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain, Net-Zero


DPD UK has confirmed that all future parcel deliveries in Oxford will be made with electric vehicles.  

 

Oxford will become DPD’s first all-electric city, with nine further UK ‘green cities’ to be confirmed this year.

 

Vision 25 is DPD’s pledge to deliver ‘green’ to 25 major UK towns and cities, covering 25 per cent of the UK population by 2025, and is backed by a £111 million investment in electric vehicles. 

 

All Oxford parcel deliveries will be made from DPD’s new Bicester eco-depot. 

 

The 60,000 sq ft hub at Symmetry Park is DPD’s first ‘net zero carbon in construction’ building, as regulated by the UK Green Building Council.

 

The depot has a fleet of 40 electric vehicles, and they will deliver over 15,000 parcels a week right across the city.
