Mober expands fleet of 60 electric vehicles

Mober now boasts a total of 60 vehicles, encompassing 39 e-trucks, 17 e-vans, and 4 three-wheelers.

Mober, a frontrunner in green logistics services in the Philippines, announced the expansion of its fleet with 30 new six-wheeler electric trucks and four three-wheelers, augmenting its capability to offer sustainable delivery solutions in the region.

With the recent fleet enhancement, Mober now boasts a total of 60 vehicles, encompassing 39 e-trucks, 17 e-vans, and 4 three-wheelers. The logistics powerhouse sets its sights on the Southeast Asian green delivery market, with ambitions of amassing a fleet of 100 electric vans and trucks by year-end and a staggering 500 units within the next two years.

Earlier this year, Mober reinforced its commitment to major brands by increasing its dedicated fleet for IKEA Philippines. This strategic partnership, along with the recent expansion, positions Mober as a valuable partner to prominent multinational FMCG titans such as Unilever Philippines and Nestlé Philippines. Notably, the company is commencing a pilot delivery program with the largest chain of coffee shops in the world, underlining its commitment to sustainable initiatives.

As Mober steers towards its sustainable goals, it’s concurrently finalizing a loan application with government-owned entities, Landbank and the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP). Both institutions are ardent advocates of the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA Law), or Republic Act No. 1169, which encourages the adoption of electric vehicles in the Philippines.

Mober’s CEO, Dennis Ng, remarked, “Our unwavering dedication to merging efficiency with sustainability is evident in our aggressive push for electric vehicles. With each addition to our fleet, we’re not merely growing – we’re leading a shift towards a more sustainable Philippine logistics landscape.”

Earlier in the year, Mober accentuated its green trajectory by partnering with Swiss coffee behemoth Nespresso for a carbon-neutral delivery initiative. Moreover, their alliance with the location technology enterprise, What3words, optimizes the delivery process, granting customers the ability to specify exact delivery locations with a unique three-word combination, ensuring precision and promptness.

Globally, the logistics and transport sector looms large as a primary carbon contributor, accounting for approximately 24% of global emissions. The European Environment Agency has sounded the alarm that, barring significant interventions, logistics could account for nearly 40% of global CO2 emissions by 2050.

Elucidating Mober’s green aspirations, Ng added, “We aim to be synonymous with green logistics. When businesses contemplate eco-friendly delivery solutions, Mober should invariably be their first thought.”

The Philippine government remains at the forefront of the electric vehicle evolution. The Department of Energy (DOE) has been vocal about ramping up EV adoption, seeking to curb the nation’s dependence on fossil fuels. Concurrently, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has floated a proposal for a temporary five-year tariff waiver. In a decisive move, Pres. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. enacted Executive Order No. 12 series of 2023, aiming to democratize access to electric vehicles for a broader Filipino audience.
