GCC based express delivery company Aramex has begun testing electric vehicles in its Saudi Arabian delivery fleet. This is part of the company’s commitment to convert its entire fleet worldwide to electric.
The electric delivery vans in Saudi Arabia have been provided by First Advanced Auto, and will be tested in last mile delivery.
Raji Hattar, chief sustainability officer at Aramex, said, “We pride ourselves on being a leader in sustainability across the region. Protecting the environment is a top priority and an essential part of our sustainability strategy, therefore, we continuously evaluate all options that contribute to reducing our CO2 emissions.
“We have already succeeded in reducing these emissions by more than 20% by the end of 2016, and we are taking steady steps toward achieving our goal of reducing them by an additional 20% by the end of 2020.”
