“In late autumn and early winter of 2019, we plan to start a pilot project in Moscow to organize goods deliveries to customers, the so-called ‘last mile deliveries’, using EVs. The project will be scaled further as we see the results,” Erntell said.
Deliveries at the IKEA Teply Stan mall will begin in November-December 2019 using two EVs, goods will be transported to customers within a radius of 30 kilometers. EV charging stations will be accordingly installed at the mall. After the pilot project is over, a similar delivery service is planned for the IKEA Khimki store.
