MOVIN introduces Electric Vehicles in Delhi NCR for its first and last-mile deliveries
MOVIN, a logistics brand founded by UPS and InterGlobe Enterprises, has added Electric Vehicles (EV) to its fleet for first and last-mile deliveries.
To reduce carbon emissions and align with its long-term sustainability goals, the EV deployment begins with Delhi-NCR and will eventually cover Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Pune by the end of 2023.
The EVs were launched from the Bilaspur Hub in Gurugram by JB Singh, Director of MOVIN Express, and Gregory Goba-Ble, Vice President for UPS in the Indian subcontinent, Middle East, and Africa and Director for MOVIN Express.
MOVIN’s decision to include EVs in its operations was influenced by the government’s emphasis on sustainable logistics solutions and the growing adoption of EVs.
MOVIN intends to expand its fleet size in its key markets as state governments gradually improve charging infrastructure.
MOVIN hopes to reduce 200 tonnes of CO2 emissions with the EV deployment over the next 12 months.
Each EV is capable of carrying up to 850 kgs of weight and can travel 120 kilometers on a single charge.
JB Singh, Director, MOVIN Express said, “As a new age climate-conscious brand launched in 2022, we are excited to announce the introduction of commercial EVs as our first and last mile fleet in the five metros by December 2023. As a company, we deeply focus on our customers’ needs and our environmental impact, we recognize the immense potential of EVs in revolutionizing the way we approach transportation by road. By embracing this transition towards adopting an electric fleet from ICEs, we not only contribute to a cleaner and greener future but also enhance the efficiency and reliability of our logistics operations. This strategic initiative aligns perfectly with our core values, showcasing our unwavering dedication to delivering sustainable solutions. With every mile driven by our EVs, we reaffirm our commitment towards building a more environmentally conscious and sustainable future.”
On the launch of the EVs, Gregory Goba Ble, Vice President for UPS in the Indian subcontinent, Middle East, and Africa and Director for MOVIN Express said, “This is an exciting new chapter for us. We’re speeding up our journey to decarbonize our operations at MOVIN Express. At UPS, we are continually exploring ways to reduce emissions across our global operations and deliver ‘good’ in the world, including achieving 100% carbon neutrality by 2050. Our global fleet today includes over 15,600 alternate fuel and advanced technology vehicles. Impactful, climate-conscious solutions like this are good for our business, good for our customers, and good for the world we all live in.”
MOVIN actively participates in outreach programs within and around its hubs, extending support to the local communities, and demonstrating its unwavering commitment to the community. MOVIN consistently strives to make a positive difference in society, from providing internships in the field of supply chain and logistics management for students across India in collaboration with CII, to organizing impactful initiatives such as tree plantations, book painting for donation, motivational talks, meal preparations, and classroom painting for underprivileged children.
MOVIN serves customers in a variety of industries, including IT & electronic peripherals, apparel, healthcare equipment, auto components, e-Commerce, pharma, consumer durables, and FMCG.
Within a year of its launch, the company had expanded its Express End-of-Day network from three markets (Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru) to 49 cities across India.
UPS and InterGlobe Enterprises have partnered to form MOVIN Express Private Limited. MOVIN is an abbreviation for Movement and India (MOVEMENT+INDIA). MOVIN’s logistics services are designed for fast-growing Indian businesses.
MOVIN provides a variety of B2B domestic services across the country, including fully predictable, day-definite, and express time-definite services.
