Mober x Nespresso partnership brings greener logistics!

Mober has a lineup of 20 Electric Vehicles (EVs) and e-trucks and has been serving clients such as IKEA for last-mile delivery, Nespresso for warehouse-to-store delivery, and SM Appliance Center for same-day delivery.

The firm aims to become the biggest logistics provider that uses environmentally friendly ways in the country.

Their partnership with Nespresso coincides with their goal as the Swiss Coffee brand was previously hailed as World's most sustainable coffee company in 2021.

Mober started delivering Nespresso products from its warehouse to stores in Metro Manila last December 2022 only, showing that both brands are committed to sustainability and prioritize eliminating carbon footprint in deliveries.

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.

The start-up also appreciates PH President BBM Jr's approval of zero tariffs on electric vehicles as a way to convince consumers to use "cleaner and greener" cars.

Moving forward, Mober's electric vans are capable of traveling up to 230 kilometers, while the electric trucks go higher at 280 kilometers. They also support fast charging with lithium-ion batters and emit zero carbon dioxide versus internal combustion (ICE) vehicles.

The company also claimed these nature-friendly vehicles require less maintenance and have lower operating costs boosting the firm's efficiency in terms of money in the long run.

If Mober could deploy 300 EV deliveries, 1,542 tons of annual carbon reductions could be achieved, which is equivalent to the CO2 savings from a 1 MWp solar PV project. A delivery driver typically commutes 200 km per day and consumes 16.4 liters of petrol per day, thus emitting 40.2 kg in CO2 emissions for an ICE delivery vehicle. Assuming the same range applied to a single Mober EV delivery vehicle, daily CO2 emissions can be reduced by 14kg or 35%, Ng explained

By replacing the harmful traditional logistics operations with EV delivery vehicles to reduce air pollution, Mober intends to lead the switch to sustainable transport in the country and plans to deploy 100 EVs by the end of 2023. Which should make them the largest green logistics in five years.
