With an investment of over USD 11 million, the logistics company purchased 108 Mercedes-Benz vehicles, among which are 42 Vito, 36 diesel Sprinter and thirty 2015 Sprinter NGT with the aim of improving both delivery and customer services. The launch ceremony took place at the premises of Zapata Camiones Tlalnepantla, where firms involved renewed their partnership for the fourth consecutive year and its commitment to environmental protection.
DHL Express Mexico is in tune with the company’s worldwide social responsibility program under the GoGreen initiative, which seeks to reduce emission by 30% by 2020.
The 30 new clean fuel units will be assigned to provide service in the city of Queretaro, representing the first DHL location around the world to adopt natural gas in all its vehicle fleet.
“The new Sprinter NGT units will stand out not only for its features, which have helped us to position ourselves as market leaders worldwide, but also for its safety, efficiency and cleaner drive,” stressed Alexander Diebold, director of Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Vans.
Meanwhile, Antonio Arranz, CEO of DHL Express Mexico, said: “The 108 vehicles now integrating the assets of DHL Express Mexico allow us to stop emitting more than 76 tons of CO2 to the environment, which represents a reduction of 14% compared to last year.”
