DHL, Official Logistics Partner to Formula E, is Offering New Yorkers Free Zero-Emission Rides

DHL, the Official Logistics Partner of Formula E, is offering New
Yorkers a free eShuttle service from key locations across Manhattan this
week in an effort to reinforce the global logistics company’s commitment
to drive progress in sustainability and e-mobility. DHL has teamed up
with Nissan ahead of the 2018 Qatar Airways New York City E-Prix to roll
out a fleet of 14 Nissan Leafs that will be available for the public to
take free zero-emission rides.

DHL has set an ambitious climate protection target to reduce
logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050. Reducing and eventually
eliminating carbon emissions is a shared ambition with Bill de Blasio,
the mayor of New York City, who would like to see the city cut gas
emissions from its vehicle fleet in half by 2025 and 80 percent by 2035.
The green eShuttle project is an ideal way to set the stage for this
weekend’s all-electric race car championship.

The DHL partnership with Formula E was born out of a shared commitment
to drive e-mobility; which is already a key part of logistics in cities
such as New York City and supports the company’s interim goal to operate
70% of its first and last mile services with clean pick-up and delivery
solutions by 2025.

The DHL eShuttle service will be running from July 11 through July 13 in
the lead up to the New York City E-Prix taking place in Red Hook,
Brooklyn, this weekend. The service will be offered from 10am to 4pm at
three different locations:

The service is open to members of the public who download the DHL
Mobility Quest app. The app uses augmented technology to allow users to
discover DHL’s solutions for future mobility and smart logistics while
exploring the streets of New York City.

The DHL eShuttle service is one part of the company’s support as
Official Logistics Partner for Formula E. In addition to the free
eShuttle, DHL has a number of activities taking place at the Formula E
Allianz eVillage including the DHL HoloLens experience and ESports
simulators. DHL is also responsible for transporting some 450 tonnes of
freight – roughly the equivalent of the freight volume of two Boeing 747
aircraft and 25 ocean freight containers – including 40 race cars,
batteries and broadcasting equipment while working with Formula E to
minimize the championship’s carbon footprint.
