Germany is a highly interesting market for Velove because of the strong ambitions to switch to sustainable energy and mobility. In their Energiewende and Verkehrswende programs, energy efficiency is a top priority. We have a piece of the puzzle to be able to reach ambitious targets, making part of last mile deliveries extremely energy- and resource efficient (15 times more energy efficient than electric vans) with several well known German customers such as Deutsche Post, DHL Express Germany and Hermes Germany. We are also in direct contact with German cities on methods to make city logistics as efficient and city friendly as possible.
Therefore, we are very happy to exhibit at the Hannover Messe, one of the worlds' largest trade fairs, 1-5 April 2019. This year, Sweden is partner country which will mean extra visibility for German-Swedish partnerships. We are happy to join the inauguration dinner on Sunday night together with Dr. Angela Merkel and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.
The team from Velove that will be present is Johan Erlandsson, Co-founder and CEO, Olow Swärd VP Sales and Marketing and Benjamin Georg, Country manager for Germany.
During the week we will make an exciting announcement about a new partnership with a German startup in the energy field.
