UPS announced this alongside its partners Arrival and DP World at a press conference at the Expo on Sunday.
Solar is powered by solar panels on the roof of the DAP World Floor, which transmits solar energy through the processing system to the charging station (BESS).
The UPS electric vehicles used at the expo will be part of the company’s major transition to zero-emission ship over the next three years.

“Our customers and their customers are asking for it,” said Scott Price, president of UPS International.

Six-year-old UK-based company Arival, which recently came out of the shadows, In 2016, it announced a partnership with UPS to develop electric vehicles, with the latter forcing commercial and environmental benefits to zero emissions.
“Our electric vans are zero-emitting, solar-powered, and do not need to be connected to an electrical grid to deliver packages. It really does make a difference, ”said Aviv’s Chief Strategic Officer Avinash Ruburur.
The company announced a $ 110 million investment in Hyundai and Yaya in January 2020, with UPS also a small share.

“Exhibition is where creativity and technology come together to make life better,” said Rygoobur, emphasizing the importance of the off-road aspect of vehicles.
With no remote connections, these vehicles can be used anywhere in the world.

Destination has introduced a new collection method using low-capital, low-footprint microfacies to serve local communities and profit from thousands of units, Rayobur said.
It also allows their vehicles to compete on the price of fossil fuels, buses and other vehicles.
“This will open the way for vehicles to be produced in the region,” he said.

To further enhance its sustainability commitment and in line with the theme of Expo 2020 Dubai, UPS will purchase carbon offsets for each package sent to UPS Expo 2020 customer counters to reduce environmental impact.
“It is our shared responsibility to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly,” said Bin Damitan.
