Aramex introduces e-bikes for last-mile deliveries in UAE

by Madaline Dunn

Logistics and transportation solutions provider Aramex has rolled out a fleet of fully electric motorcycles to its last-mile delivery vehicles in the UAE.

The company shared that this is part of its long-term strategic goal to achieve a total fleet of 98% Electric Vehicles (EVs) by 2030.

The rollout of e-bikes complements the introduction of fully electric vans to Aramex’s last-mile delivery fleet in the UAE in October last year and in Amman, Jordan, in 2017, it said. The company has also been investing in drones and bots for last-mile deliveries.

Aramex has been progressively testing the introduction of EVs in other regional markets, too, such as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the launch, Samer Marei, Vice President – GCC at Aramex, said: “We are proud to set a new standard for sustainable and efficient logistics transportation in the region with the introduction of e-bikes as part of our last-mile delivery fleet in the UAE. This fantastic new initiative, complementing our recent expansion of a fully electric vehicles fleet, marks a crucial step towards accelerating the adoption of green mile logistics across the region.”

Adding: “By incorporating e-bikes into our operations, we not only contribute to reducing emissions but also enhance efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and future readiness. At Aramex, pioneering the future of logistics is ingrained in our DNA, and the inclusion of e-bikes alongside our EV fleet is a testament to that commitment. As leaders in sustainability and innovation, this combined fleet underscores our unwavering dedication to delivering a better and more sustainable future in the markets where we operate. We are thrilled to announce this new initiative, especially as the world reflects on COP28 in Dubai and as we continue to scale up our efforts in embracing electric vehicles for a cleaner and greener tomorrow.”

The introduction of e-mobility is closely aligned with Aramex’s ‘Delivering Good’ initiative, which, it said, prioritises investing and innovating targeted at reducing negative environmental impact.

This includes finding new ways to increase efficiency, lower energy consumption, minimise material use, and manage the company’s overall environmental footprint.
