Mar 15, 2022

Dedicated fleet for premier consumer electronics customer • Making headway towards sustainable transport in Japanese supply chains

Tokyo, March 10, 2022 – Schenker-Seino, the Japanese branch of DB Schenker announces the launch of its Electrical Vehicle fleet, dedicated to the delivery and transport operations of their global premier consumer electronics customer.

In line with the global strategic focus towards carbon-neutral logistics and operations for customers and their supply chains, the dedicated EV trucks will significantly reduce particularly Scope 2 & 3 carbon emissions for customers’ supply chains.

Schenker-Seino has acquired two (2) units of Mitsubishi Fuso trucks “e-Canter”. The Mitsubishi Fuso “e-Canter” is an all-electric truck that has a Dry Van with a gate and a maximum loading capacity of 2,750kg.

DB Schenker operates the largest fully electric truck network in Europe. The electrification and carbon neutralization of its fleet and operations has significantly gained traction in other regions around the world, such as in the Asia Pacific.

The launch of the new EV fleet dovetails with the 3PL’s focus on green logistics, which the DB Schenker Group is actively working on in Europe, as well as in Japan with the cooperation of Seino Transportation Co., Ltd. The company will continue to seek services that will connect to the next generation.

Schenker-Seino is committed to becoming the leading green logistics provider in Japan. The management is convinced that success is measured not just by performance – but also the social, environmental, and economic benefits and value it can bring to Japan and the people in Japan.

Over the years, Schenker-Seino has been working on sustainability and regeneration across its logistics facilities, freight solutions, and converting company vehicles to electric models. The launch of the Electric Vehicles (EV) as one of the first movers in Japan, is yet another significant milestone towards greener logistics.
