Jumbo’s sustainable last mile delivery

Date : 28 June 2017

Jumbo has unveiled electric vehicles for online deliveries.

Sustainable delivery option

Jumbo is to start using electric vehicles for its last mile online delivery service in Groningen, with Utrecht following suit shortly. The so-called ‘Street Scooter’ is specially designed for deliveries as a quieter alternative to traditional delivery vehicles, and doesn’t emit CO2 or have a negative effect on air quality.

Roy van Keulen, Jumbo’s Director for Online, commented: "As a family business, sustainability is in our genes and we feel responsible for the present and future generations. In everything we do, we want to make it easier and better for customers.”

Investing in online

Earlier this year, Jumbo announced plans to invest in its online supply chain, including doubling the number of stores that offer home delivery. Find out more about its online expansion plans, including a new automated distribution centre, here.
