Amazon will soon
launch a spaceship take to the road with electric vans to deliver packages in the Netherlands.
Whether you’re a die-hard Amazon shopper or anti-Jeff Bezos, let’s agree that if delivery vehicles have to be on the road, they may as well be electric. That’s why we give a grand ol’ 👍 to the 40 electric Amazon vans that will soon deliver to major Dutch cities.
It follows the launch of Amazon’s first Dutch delivery centre, where an 8,500 square meter hall will process thousands of packages every week.
Of course, we can’t avoid the fact that the 200 vans will service the delivery centre — yet only 40 are electric. It begs the question: is it enough?
Electric or not, the vans will deliver packages to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, and potentially Utrecht. Other areas in the country will have their Amazon packages delivered by PostNL, DHL Nederland, Red Je Pakketje, and independent couriers.
