Reliable delivery vehicle now also electric

Around 3.2 billion parcels are shipped and delivered in Germany every year; due to the continuing boom in online trading, the number is growing. More city-friendly delivery vehicles are in demand - like the CEP shuttle, with which Krone conquers the last mile.

Krone combines its integral case with various chassis. The trend among parcel delivery companies is towards electrified vehicles. "These alternatives enable us to reach more customers than before," says Gerhard Klaus, Head of Key Account Management at Fahrzeugwerk Krone.

Box body with a clever concept

The driver enters the box directly from the driver's cab and leaves the vehicle through the side or rear door. A rear step gives access to the case. A reversing camera above the rear door provides safety when reversing and parking. The side door opens and closes mechanically, optionally electronically. The driver saves time and personal safety on the road.

The streamlined roof hood and side trim have a positive effect on air resistance and visually enhance the vehicle. The domed roof prevents water from standing on the roof or freezing over in sub-zero temperatures.

Order and flexible inner life

Organising shelving systems organise shipments in the CEP shuttle optimally. The sack truck has room in a niche. A motion detector controls the interior lighting of the vehicle. Numerous other features provide a great deal of comfort in everyday working life.

Main features of the delivery-friendly CEP vehicle:

  • Passage door from the driver's cab to the cargo area
  • Double-wing rear door
  • Side door as sliding door on the right in the direction of travel
  • Rear step with integrated anti-slip protection
  • Loading space with 2 rows of shelves each left and right
  • Anti-slip mats and load securing certificate

Electrification for sustainable mobility at the Movano

The volume of the Opel Movano eKEP shuttle is approx. 18.5 m³; its useful volume 8.2 m³. The eKEP shuttle has a permissible total weight of 4,000 kg with a payload of approx. 1000 kg. The batteries are optionally 40 kWh and 55 kWh strong. The 40 kWh battery charges at a quick charging station in just two hours, the range of the vehicle is 80 to 120 km, depending on the topography. The 55 kWh battery needs three hours, it offers a range of approx. 160 to 190 km. The power of the engine is regulated, so the maximum speed of the eKEP shuttle is 95 km/h.

Sole proprietors profit

Krone has been producing the KEP shuttle for around nine years, not only for DHL, but also for subcontractors. Krone works together with KEP Wirtschaftsdienst GmbH - the cooperation partner for vehicle procurement and mobility services of BdKEP (Bundesverband der Kurier-Express-Post-Dienste).

In coordination with Krone, the chassis manufacturers deliver to the production site in Herzlake. Here Krone assembles the box body and transport frame for the special vehicle and delivers to the customers.
