On 13 August 2021, DHL opened its new hub at Filipstad. From Filipstad, DHL Express will distribute all-electric within central Oslo (Ring 3). From here, there will be 12 electrical routes, which will make DHL Express' distribution fully electric within Ring 3. Eight vans, three Paxters and one cargo-bike will be responsible for the distribution.

– Sustainability is our responsibility and a commitment to sustainability is an integral part of our corporate culture, said CEO of DHL Express, Terje Aarbog during the opening, which he made together with Minister of Climate and Environmental Protection Sveinung Rotevatn.

From the new hub right by the highway E18 towards the city center, the volume will initially be around 1.000 consignments a day, Aarbog says.

The new hub at Filipstad is part of a major green initiative by DHL globally, which has set aside seven billion euros to cut as much CO2-emissions as possible by 2030. Among other things, 12 fully electric cargo planes have been ordered, which will be on the wings within two to three years. The goal is ultimately to be completely emission-free by 2050. In Norway, the goal is for 70% of last mile deliveries to be emission-free by 2025.

– The investment in DHL Oslo City Hub will further put DHL Express on the map among future players in green logistics. In DHL Express Norway, we have set ourselves a local goal that 70% of our last-mile deliveries will be emission-free by 2025, concludes Aarbog.
