Last mile delivery
Although the Goupil concept was originally developed for urban cleaning and grounds maintenance applications, the philosophy has always been the same: enable smooth stopping and starting in crowded areas.
The benefits of electric vehicles for last-mile deliveries
- Clean: many European cities have adopted Low Emission Zones which represent a challenge for last-mile delivery stakeholders. By opting for a fleet of electric vehicles, you ensure the viability of your delivery service in urban and suburban areas.
- Image: electric vehicles meet customers expectations in terms of environmental concerns. Goupil utility vehicles bring a peaceful touch the urban landscape and offer many benefits: they are discreet, silent and do not release any CO2.
- Cost-effective: logistics expenses represent a large share of last-mile delivery spending. Choosing a captive electric utility fleet will help manage and reduce costs.
