Filipino tech-logistics startup Mober has partnered with Swiss coffee brand Nespresso to decarbonize its on-ground delivery by switching to electric vehicles (EVs).
Mober started delivering Nespresso products from its warehouse to stores around Metro Manila last December 2022, demonstrating both company’s commitment to sustainability and focus on cutting carbon footprint in delivery. Nespresso was named the world’s most sustainable coffee company in 2021.
“We aim to catalyze a transition to zero-emissions mid and last-mile delivery in the Philippines. By switching to electric vehicles, Nespresso is set to eliminate hundreds of tons of CO2 emissions yearly, and this is just the beginning for us,” said Dennis Ng, CEO and founder of Mober.
A pioneer in EV delivery in the Philippines, Mober purchased its first electric delivery fleet in October 2021 to give companies with net zero mandate an environmentally friendly choice.
Currently, Mober has a fleet of 20 EVs and e-trucks, serving a variety of clients, such as IKEA for last-mile delivery, Nespresso for warehouse-to-store delivery, and SM Appliance Center for same-day delivery.
By replacing carbon-intensive logistics operations with EV delivery vehicles to reduce air pollution, Mober aims to facilitate the transition toward sustainable transport in the Philippines. Mober plans to deploy 100 EV units by the end of 2023 and become the largest green logistics in five years.
