Mober Expands Green Fleet for Sustainable Logistics in the Philippines

Mober, a leading green logistics provider in the Philippines, is expanding its fleet with 30 new electric trucks and four three-wheelers to enhance sustainable delivery services in the region. This brings their total fleet to 60 vehicles, including 39 e-trucks, 17 e-vans, and 4 three-wheelers. Mober aims to grow to 100 electric vans and trucks by year-end and 500 units within two years, focusing on the Southeast Asian green delivery market.

They recently increased their dedicated fleet for IKEA Philippines and are partnering with major FMCG brands like Unilever Philippines and Nestl√© Philippines. Mober is also launching a pilot delivery program with the world’s largest coffee shop chain.

Mober is working on a loan application with government-owned entities, Landbank and the Development Bank of the Philippines, in line with the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA Law) to promote electric vehicle adoption.

Dennis Ng, Mober’s CEO, emphasized their commitment to sustainability and efficiency, aiming to lead the shift towards a greener logistics landscape in the Philippines. They’ve partnered with Nespresso for a carbon-neutral delivery initiative and integrated What3words location technology for precise deliveries.

Globally, the logistics sector contributes significantly to carbon emissions, prompting Mober to prioritize green solutions. The Philippine government is also promoting electric vehicle adoption, with initiatives from the Department of Energy and the Department of Trade and Industry, including a tariff waiver.

Mober’s goal is to become a symbol of green logistics, aligning with the Philippines’ push for electric vehicle adoption and reduced dependence on fossil fuels.
