EV Charging for Last Mile Delivery Guide

Environmentally Friendly Delivery

Thanks to low daily driving ranges and defined routes with predictable schedules, the last mile delivery sector is the perfect fit for electrification. That’s why many logistics operators are already introducing electric vans into their fleets. Making delivery more environmentally friendly on these short routes between the transportation hub and the final destination.

Putting IKEA’s Last Mile Electrification Infrastructure Together

IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer, with more than 400 stores in over 50 countries. Famous for its self-assembly furniture and wide range of homeware, there are 21 IKEA stores in the UK. 

To support IKEA’s stated aim of reaching 100% zero emission deliveries by 2025, Mer worked with IKEA to understand the power requirements of each store and identify where grid connection upgrades were needed. Mer’s analysis of how vehicles operated at each depot, enabled an accurate calculation of how many rapid chargers and fast chargers IKEA would need, which Mer is installing.
