DHL’s 400 van deal

DHL Express has signed a contract hire package for more than 400 delivery vans with Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Services.

All the vans will be fitted with telematics following a decision by DHL Express to introduce the technology to improve driver behaviour, reduce carbon emissions and fuel consumption.

Richard Crook, director of fleet at DHL Express UK and Ireland said: “We are pleased to extend our partnership with Hitachi Capital to include light commercial fleet. A key factor for DHL Express was the inclusion of telematics, which we see as a key enabler to achieving our long term goal of reducing carbon emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.”
