Canadian technology-enabled e-commerce fulfilment and last mile delivery partner Bolt will be deploying 30 electric vehicles across the country in 2022 for IKEA.

Bolt’s first zero emission delivery trucks have officially hit the road with more to follow across the rest of Canada.

The partnership propels both Bolt and IKEA Canada forward within the Canadian logistics, delivery and e-commerce landscape by improving relationships with progressive clients intending to decarbonise their supply chain.

“Bolt is committed to being a planet positive business. We’re demonstrating this commitment through our focus on becoming a carbon-negative logistics company by the end of 2023. This involves making a conscious investment to help ensure we can provide a zero-emission, carbon-negative last-mile delivery solution, while funding carbon sequestering initiatives around the globe,” said Mark Ang, CEO of Bolt Logistics.

Melissa Barbosa, Head of Sustainability at IKEA Canada added: “With transportation being one of the largest contributors of the global climate crisis, IKEA Canada is committed to eradicating carbon emissions and electrifying its last-mile delivery service, utilising the benefits of electric vehicles to further transform the market.”
