For the deliveries in Europe, Amazon has announced it is going to spend 1 billion Euros to electrify its fleet in the next five years. At present, the American giant counts about 3,000 zero emission lorries that deliver about 100 million packages in one year for last-mile deliveries in Europe. The target is relying on at least 10,000 zero emission vans by 2025.
In the future, Amazon will also buy larger and heavier trucks for longer travels: vehicles such as electric Tesla Semi, Freightliner eCascadia and Volvo VNR that move large freight quantities from ports to distribution centres. Amazon’s investment provides also for the installation of charge stations for its electric vehicles inside the company’s structures located in the whole European Continent.
