Mober Switches On EV Charging Station For Its Fleet

Mober, a logistics and delivery company, switched on its electric vehicle (EV) charging hub in Pasay City. Located just 1.5 kilometers from IKEA Pasay, this 800-square-meter facility shows its dedication to become the leader in green logistics in Southeast Asia.

Equipped with OCPP-compatible 7-kW AC chargers compatible with both Type 2 and GB/T standards, it ensures the efficiency of Mober’s EV fleet earmarked for IKEA. To that end, Mober has invested P 2 million in the construction of the EV charging station.

“We strategically opted for this charging capacity as our EV fleet remains dormant during nighttime, allowing optimal charging without overwhelming the grid,” explained CEO Dennis Ng.

He further unveiled plans to incorporate more potent 22-kW chargers along with a selection of DC chargers at locations in Cavite/Laguna and Bulacan, amplifying Mober’s commitment to versatility and adaptability in its green infrastructure.

Ng elaborated, “This inauguration symbolizes not just a milestone but a beacon of our overarching blueprint for an environmentally-conscious logistic framework. And, we’re just getting started.”

Mober’s unique partnership model provides an unprecedented advantage to businesses, allowing them to transition to green delivery operations with zero upfront costs, democratizing access to green logistics. This hassle-free collaboration is pivotal in encouraging more companies to embrace sustainable logistics, reinforcing Mober’s role as a game-changer in the sector.

Aligning with the mandates of the EVIDA Act, Mober’s initiatives underscore the Philippines’ stance on eco-driven policies and endeavors. With Mober’s approach, businesses have a definitive roadmap to decarbonize their last and mid-mile delivery systems, heralding a new era in business sustainability.

Mober started in 2015 and was initially designed to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) solve their on-demand logistical needs. Eight years later, it has now become a business-to-business (B2B) platform facilitating sustainable delivery for retail giants such as IKEA Philippines, SM Appliance Center, Nestle Philippines, and Nespresso.

The company aims to become the leading green logistics delivery provider in Southeast Asia by securing a mixed fleet of 100 electric vans and trucks by the end of 2023.
