Maersk, a global integrated logistics operator, on Monday said that it is planning to add over 300 electric vehicles to its fleet in India by October.
The company has already deployed over 200 Electric Vehicles (EVs) across 15 cities in the country, and is planning to expand to another 11 cities, taking its overall EV fleet to over 500, it said in a statement.
Moreover, it aims to be a net-zero across businesses and provide customers with 100 per cent green solutions by 2040. In September last year, the company unveiled three-wheeler and four-wheeler EVs in Mumbai, which was followed by the rollout in the National Capital Region.
Maersk said it has recently tied up with a large ecommerce platform in India to support its distribution requirements with a dedicated fleet of EVs that range in the capacity of 550-700 kg with a driving range of over 120 kilometres.
Vikash Agarwal, Asia Managing Director, Maersk, said, India is a large market with a constantly growing demand for distribution logistics.
