INVITATION to the ELA Community for a visit to StreetScooter factory in Aachen, Germany on March 16th 2018

ELA is organizing for the ELA community a visit to StreetScooter Factory in Aachen, taking place March 16th, 2018.

 

As part of its long term business plan, DHL has developed three zero emissions vehicles tailored to “last mile” distribution operations: an electric trike, an electric bicycle and, most important of all, the StreetScooter, an electric delivery van.

 

StreetScooter has a range of 80 Km, top speed of 85 Km/h and a carry capacity of 740 Kg. This electric van was developed by StreetScooter GmbH, a start-up company bought by Deutsche Port DHL Group in 2014 and is manufactured in Aachen – Aix La Chapelle. The original idea behind the product was to make small electric vehicle fleets, an economic attractive option for “last mile” deliveries.

 

DHL is now selling the second generation StreetScooters to third parties. Developing, using and marketing the StreetScooter highlights an integrated approach to sustainable distribution practices and, at the same moment, an interesting move of a major Logistics Service Provider to manufacturing activities.

 

ELA proposes its members to visit the Streetscooter production facility and to meet its management in order to get first-hand information on last mile distribution innovation.

 

VENUE StreetScooter GmbH Julicher Strasse 191 52070 Aachen Germany

 

TIMING The visit will start at 1300.

 

We are organizing a lunch at 1200 for those willing to join in a quick get-together moment.
