IKEA Damansara Introduces EV For Last-Mile Deliveries

IKEA Malaysia introduced its first electric vehicle (EV) for last-mile deliveries. The new addition to its fleet will service the Petaling District for IKEA Damansara starting May 2023.

The move aligns with the global IKEA commitment to reduce emissions in all stages of its value chain including last-mile deliveries. As demand for online shopping and speedy deliveries continue to grow, and with road transport being one of the biggest contributors to transportation emissions in Malaysia, IKEA Malaysia shared that it aims to expand its EV fleet next year and transition to more sustainable transport solutions.

“At IKEA Malaysia, we want to make our home furnishing solutions accessible to more Malaysians, in more sustainable ways. So, we are excited to introduce our first EV for last-mile deliveries and take the first step in meeting our ambition of making 100% of our home deliveries in EVs or other sustainable transport solutions by 2030.

Our aim globally is to reduce more greenhouse gas emissions than the IKEA value chain emits, while growing the IKEA business. Decarbonising how we transport products to customers will contribute in meeting our global climate positive commitments,” shares Malcolm Pruys, Country Retail Director of IKEA Malaysia.”
