DHL Express Works On Reducing Fleet Emissions With Shell Fleet Solutions
Shell Fleet Solutions, the business mobility division of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd, has started a strategic partnership to support DHL Express Malaysia’s sustainability journey to reduce emissions across its fleet operations.
The Shell Fleet Solutions Accelerate to Zero (A2Z) programme makes available Shell’s full range of consultancy services and innovative solutions tailored to help fleet customers such as DHL Express to chart their decarbonisation course towards net-zero emissions.
Being long-standing global partners, Shell and DHL had established a strategic decarbonisation relationship in June of 2022. Specific to the 2 companies’ activities in Malaysia, both will leverage on their knowledge, expertise, and global infrastructure to support sustainable business growth through fleet decarbonisation and improving safety standards around electrification solutions. The agreement further provides a framework to explore cooperation in other carbon-neutral initiatives.
“Our intent is to support fleets in Malaysia in their shift towards decarbonisation as they face the challenges of balancing costs and the need to adopt lower carbon mobility solutions. Our A2Z programme supports this initiative through our offerings, which include innovative Shell Recharge Solutions, Shell Telematics and Shell Nature-based Solutions. We are happy to partner with DHL Express in Malaysia to contribute towards a more sustainable business growth,” shared Joanna Lean, General Manager, Shell Fleet Solutions Malaysia.
In terms of commercial vehicle electrification, DHL Express has pioneered this journey in Malaysia with Shell Recharge Solutions. This bespoke solution was developed by Shell Recharge Solutions and comprises both hardware and software management which utilises its end-to-end smart EV charging solution software – Shell SKY.
Hence, DHL Express’ EV fleet operations would now benefit from on-site charging infrastructure at its depots and warehouses, with on-the-go payment services through the Shell Card and convenience retailing benefits when fast charging at Shell stations.
Managing Director of DHL Express Malaysia and Brunei, Julian Neo, said that the company was targets to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. “As a leading international express service provider, it is our responsibility to drive the sustainable transformation of our industry. Alternative drives and fuels as well as clean energy solutions are important areas to achieve this goal. We are proud to partner Shell as we work even closer together on our decarbonisation journey. Through the A2Z programme, we can further reduce the environmental impact of our delivery fleet and transition to more climate-neutral operations”.
