Mober, a leader in green logistics services in the Philippines, has boosted its fleet with 30 new six-wheeled electric trucks and four three-wheelers, enhancing its capacity to provide sustainable delivery solutions.
Mober has recently upgraded its fleet to include 60 vehicles with 39 e-trucks, 17 e-vans, and 4 three-wheelers. The logistics company aims to dominate the green delivery market in Southeast Asia by increasing its fleet to 100 electric vans and trucks by the end of the year and a whopping 500 units within the next two years.
At the beginning of this year, Mober demonstrated its dedication to leading brands by expanding its exclusive fleet for IKEA Philippines. This strategic collaboration and its recent growth establishes Mober as a valuable partner to prominent global FMCG giants like Unilever Philippines and Nestlé Philippines. It is worth mentioning that the company is starting a trial delivery program with the biggest coffee chain globally, showcasing its dedication to eco-friendly initiatives.
Mober is working towards its sustainable goals and applying for a loan with government-owned entities, Landbank and the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP). These institutions strongly support the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA Law), also known as Republic Act No. 1169, which promotes using electric vehicles in the Philippines.
“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,” said Mober’s CEO, Dennis Ng.
The electric vehicle revolution in the Philippines is being spearheaded by the government. The Department of Energy (DOE) is actively promoting the adoption of EVs to reduce the country’s reliance on fossil fuels.
Additionally, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has proposed a five-year tariff exemption. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has made a significant move by enacting Executive Order No. 12 series of 2023, which aims to make electric vehicles more accessible to all Filipinos.
