Austrian full-service provider eww Anlagentechnik and ABB have supplied Austria’s national postal service, Österreichische Post, with 2,000 AC-charging stations to electrify its fleet and support the expansion of sustainable parcel delivery throughout the Alpine republic.
Österreichische Post is fully committed to e-mobility and wants to achieve emission-free deliveries by 2030. Some 2,000 Terra AC wallbox charging points will be installed at more than 100 locations. The regional full-service provider eww Anlagentechnik, in cooperation with ABB as a global leader in electric vehicle charging, will provide the innovative solution for the AC charging requirements of the delivery fleet.
Electric cars have been in use at Österreichische Post since 2011. In 2019, the group decided to convert the entire delivery fleet to e-drives or other alternative forms by 2030 with the aim to achieve CO2-free delivery for the so-called “last mile” – the journeys of letters and parcels from the delivery base to the addressees.
Österreichische Post operates the largest fleet of e-vehicles in Austria, with 2,100 vehicles. In order to be able to charge the steadily growing fleet of electric vehicles in a future-proof manner, it is important to create reliable and optimum charging conditions at their locations.
The Terra AC-Wallbox impresses with its outstanding quality, future-proof flexibility and high security. Space-saving and easy to install, it is characterized above all by its user-friendliness. The digital solutions of the Terra AC-Wallbox, such as the TerraConfig app or the ChargerSync portal, allow even better management and easier commissioning. Terra AC-Wallboxes are intelligent and networked charging solutions that are suitable for every company, every home and every location.
Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility division commented: “Fleet electrification has the biggest potential to impact transport emissions globally. We are delighted to be working with eww Anlagentechnik to enable a sustainable transport future for Österreichische Post and hope this serves to positively inspire other fleet providers to transition to electric vehicles.”
ABB is supporting efforts to increase e-mobility adoption across Austria, having also supplied over 60 350 kW Terra High Power chargers for installation at 16 IONITY charging sites across the country, making those the fastest chargers in Austria.
