Electric vehicles are automobiles that run on electric motors, instead of internal-combustion engines that generate power by burning a mix of fuel and gases. There are primarily two types of electric vehicles.
All-Electric Vehicles (AEVs)
Run solely on electricity
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)
Run partially on fuel and electricity
EVs are both eco-friendly and offer business benefits to logistics companies. By adopting electric fleet in the last-mile, enterprises can
Reduce carbon footprint and minimize the impact of logistics on the environment
Minimize fuel consumption significantly
Reduces operating costs
Save time and cost on fleet maintenance

Has committed to transitioning to 100% adoption of electric vehicles by 2030
Aims to operate an entire fleet of all-electric vehicles powered with 100% renewable energy
Plans to carry out 25 percent of its last-mile deliveries by electric vehicles by 2025
Aims to ramp up its fleet of 800 EVs to 4,000-5,000 in the next two years
Electric vehicles are certainly shaping the future of last-mile transportation, but the big question is whether it is ideal for your business. EVs are best suited to businesses that carry out last-mile deliveries within a fixed and limited radius.
