Mober, the pioneering delivery service company at the nexus of innovation and sustainability, has launched its first electric vehicle (EV) charging hub in Pasay City.
The Mober facility, located only 1.5 km away from IKEA Pasay, spans 800 square meters and represents the company’s commitment to environmentally sustainable logistics, placing it at the forefront of green logistics in Southeast Asia.
The charging point is outfitted with the newest OCPP 7kw (kilowatt) chargers that work with both type 2 and GB/T standards. This guarantees quick charging sessions, which maintains the steadfast efficiency of Mober’s exclusive EV fleet designated for IKEA. Mober has allocated P2 million for the development of the charging station.
“We strategically opted for this charging capacity as our EV fleet remains dormant during nighttime, allowing optimal charging without overwhelming the grid,” explained CEO Dennis Ng.
Mober plans to add more powerful 22kw chargers and DC chargers to upcoming charging points in Cavite/Laguna and Bulacan, demonstrating their dedication to green infrastructure flexibility.
Mober was established in 2015 with the aim of assisting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in addressing their on-demand logistical requirements. After eight years, it has evolved into a business-to-business (B2B) platform that promotes sustainable delivery for major retail brands such as IKEA Philippines, SM Appliance Center, Nestle Philippines, and Nespresso. By the end of 2023, it plans to secure a fleet of 100 electric vans and trucks, with the goal of becoming the top green logistics delivery provider in Southeast Asia.
“This inauguration symbolizes not just a milestone but a beacon of our overarching blueprint for an environmentally-conscious logistic framework. And, we’re just getting started,” added Ng.
