Delivery company DHL Express’s Singapore unit will invest $8 million electrifying its fleet over the next five years to meet the city-state’s net zero emission goals.

The courier company will add 80 electric vehicles to its fleet by October, Managing Director Christopher Ong said in a statement Tuesday. Singapore is planning to phase out fossil fuel-powered vehicles by 2040, with only hybrids and zero emission vehicles to be sold from 2030 onward.

The new EVs will be leased from Singapore-based ComfortDelGro Corp. and replace internal combustion engine vans, DHL said. The company plans to add 25 more EVs over the next 12 months and install 105 charging points across its service centres. The vans will have a range of 339 kilometers (210 miles) and a payload of 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds).
