“This partnership represents an incredible milestone for Arcimoto and our direct-to-customer sales model. As we plan for mass production, a seamless delivery solution from our factory is vitally important,” said Arcimoto Founder and CEO, Mark Frohnmayer. “DHL’s best-in-class technology, out-of-the-box-truck thinking, and commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship drive a huge win for Arcimoto adopters, who will benefit from not only the efficiency and joy of the Fun Utility Vehicle, but also the speed and accessibility of receiving one.”
Using its digital logistics solutions, DHL Global Forwarding will deliver the FUV directly to customers’ homes. The program will combine true factory-direct residential delivery with a seamless online user experience to allow tracking from dock to driveway, with tracking numbers informing customers of delivery date targets and shipment updates every step of the way. The distribution program will launch in two phases, initially focusing on the lower 48 U.S. states, with a later expansion slated to include Alaska, Hawaii and international destinations.
“We are very pleased to announce this partnership, leveraging DHL Global Forwarding's digitized logistics technology to deliver Arcimoto's highly-efficient electric vehicles, which are making a real impact in reducing energy consumption, carbon emissions and air pollution,” said David Goldberg, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding, US. “This type of innovation falls squarely in line with DHL’s GoGreen environmental protection program, which aims to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.”
The FUV is currently available to Arcimoto preorder customers on the West Coast.
