DPD wants to deliver emission free in cities by building a network of all-electric micro-depots so that our all-electric vehicles are located closer to our customers. This means shoppers get their next-day delivery in a cleaner, quieter and more sustainable way.

The type of properties we need to convert to micro-depots are hard to get in our city centres because of the high demand for the land or buildings for business and residential use.

To help us create an all-electric micro depot network we need stakeholders, and property companies to give us access to new city-centre locations

Some people might ask why not take delivery depots out of the city, but that isn’t the answer as it just means vehicle have to drive longer distances and we have to use more of them, so there would be more vehicles on the road.  What we want is fewer vehicles with more parcels onboard and a micro-delivery depot network is the best way to facilitate this.

We will set the standard in sustainable delivery and we’ll look at underground car parks or any other site local authorities can offer, we are really thinking out of the box to find answers to clean, green urban delivery.

And it’s not just about London, we want to work closely with local authorities up and down the country to develop a network of city centre final mile micro- depots.

Please support our petition to urge Local Authorities to help DPD use alternative city-centre locations to provide all-electric, cleaner and greener delivery.
