Last mile delivery
Although the Goupil concept was originally developed for urban cleaning applications and green areas maintenance, the philosophy has always been the same: enable smooth stop-and-go driving in crowded areas.
Last mile delivery has become an essential service in our daily lives.
whether it’s food shopping, flowers, last-minute purchases or professional equipment, many customers make the most of the benefits of last mile delivery services to receive their order straight to their doorstep or workplace.
Expert in small utility trucks, Goupil offers a range of vehicles tailored for stop & go applications.
The compact dimensions of our vans make it easy to drive and park in city centres. As a result, delivery drivers are more efficient on their rounds.
The quiet nature of our utility vehicles allows for deliveries early in the morning or late at night without disturbing the neighbourhood and help improve the quality of life in residential areas.
In order to reduce the environmental impact of online shopping, last mile delivery stakeholders must find eco-friendly alternatives to fossil fuel-powered vehicles. This assessment is not only based on the consequences of last mile deliveries on the environment but also aims to ensure such businesses can last over time.
As global warming concerns rise, governments and local authorities are implementing low emission zones, where only “clean” vehicles are permitted to circulate without restriction.
Currently in place in a dozen cities in France, these zones will be extended to all conurbations with more than 150,000 inhabitants by 2025.
In the face of these challenges, transport and logistics businesses are looking for more sustainable means of transport for goods and parcel deliveries in urban and suburban areas.

The delivery profession involves frequent stops. The ergonomic design of the cab makes it easy for the driver to get in and out of the vehicle, ensuring optimum comfort throughout the day. With a maximum range of almost 200 km (subject to battery capacity), your delivery drivers can carry out their delivery rounds with peace of mind.
Early users like DHL, FedEx or La Poste, to name a few, have quickly understood the benefits of using our compact and robust chassis to cover the last miles from their delivery hub.
Thanks to the vehicle’s short wheelbase, the driver can park close to the delivery point saving time and therefore improving the efficiency of their rounds.
Our G6 is ideal for transporting goods from a distribution hub on the outskirts of town. With a maximum speed of 80 km/h, it can travel without disrupting traffic flow. Available with a maximum volume of 9 m3, the G6 is cut out for transporting large parcels or goods. Loading operations with a forklift are made easier by the 45 cm loading height.
Specific body options for various applications
With the highest capacity-to-size ratio on the market, Goupil vans offer a loading volume from 1.5 m3 to 9 m3.
All our models can be fitted with lithium batteries with capacities ranging from 5.2 kWh to 28.8 kWh and a maximum range of nearly 200 km.
