Ikea Canada partners with Bolt Logistics to expands electric truck fleet

Ikea Canada has partnered with Bolt Logistics to deploy another 30 electric delivery trucks in 2022. Ten have already joined an existing fleet of 15 ZEVs. \

“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, utilizing the benefits of electric vehicles to further transform the market,”

Melissa Barbosa, Head of Sustainability at IKEA Canada

Toronto-based Bolt added that today’s deal marked one of Canada’s largest orders of zero-emission delivery vehicles to date. Founded in 2017, Bolt calls itself an e-commerce fulfilment and last-mile delivery provider for businesses of all sizes.

For Ikea, the company has already deployed the first ten trucks of the new order and expects to add the remaining 20 in British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario in the first half of the year.

As in other markets, Ikea has installed EV chargers in all Canadian locations to halve relative emissions from its employees and customers by 2030.
