UPS is electrifying its Chinese fleet - UPS

Challenge accepted: Larry Wei started out with just two electric vehicles (EVs) in 2017. He’s an UPS automotive fleet manager who, with his team, was asked to bring electric vehicles to UPS’s China operations.

“We’ve been ahead of the game in rolling out electric vehicles in Asia, but it also meant that we needed to learn on the job,” Larry said. “A lot of research, testing and evaluation were required.” The team also took safety and compliance into consideration when setting up the charging infrastructure.

Electrifying the fleet: Today, nearly all of UPS’s delivery fleet in the downtown areas of Beijing and Xi’an are fully electrified.

After five years, Larry and the team have expanded the fleet to more cities including Beijing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
