Innogy To Supply Deutsche Post DHL With EV Charging Stations

In order to better support its growing electric vehicle fleet (and fleet customers), Deutsche Post DHL has come to an agreement with Innogy that will see electric vehicle charging infrastructure provided to DHL locations in 10 different countries in Europe.

In order to better support its growing electric vehicle fleet (and fleet customers), Deutsche Post DHL has come to an agreement with Innogy that will see electric vehicle charging infrastructure provided to DHL locations in 10 different countries in Europe.

The move is partly owing to newly expanded plans concerning Deutsche Post DHL’s electric vehicle (EV) fleet sales, reportedly — with the aim now being for “e-mobility” to account for a significant portion of the company’s business from 2021 onward. (Volkswagen execs are presumably happy about this…)

The new agreement runs until 2019, and will see installations in Germany (of course), and 9 other nearby nations as well. The financial details of the deal have not been publicly disclosed.

“The StreetScooters of Deutsche Post can charge up at a station from Innogy specifically designed for them,” explained Martin Herrmann, the chief operating officer or the retail division at Deutsche Post DHL, in an interview with Reuters.

Speaking about the company’s plans for the “e-mobility” sector, Herrmann stated: “We want to grow significantly every year.”

Reuters provides some context for the news:

“To ramp up production, Deutsche Post in October said it was building a second StreetScooter electric minivan factory in Dueren near Cologne as it doubles capacity to sell vehicles to third parties…Along with an expected pickup in demand for electric vehicles, Innogy hopes services that go along with it will increase its sales and profit in the fiercely competitive energy retail market.

“Customers of Innogy’s charging infrastructure include private as well as corporate clients, including Daimler, Volkswagen, and food retailer Aldi Sued. In Europe, Innogy has so far installed 7,000 charging points.”

In related news, Innogy also recently announced that it had come to terms with the Italy-based firm “Be Charge,” and that plans were now in the works to install 1,000 new EV charging stations in the country as a result.

So, overall yet more good news for those who like to watch Volkswagen (potentially) lose market-share…We’ll keep you posted as the situation further develops.
