Ninja Van Singapore, a local tech-enabled express logistics company, has taken another step on its sustainability journey by kicking off a pilot program to trial electric vehicles – and launching an eco-friendly version of its Ninja courier packs this month.

A pilot EV trial

Ninja Van has partnered with Goldbell Leasing to add 10 electric vehicles to its fleet in a pilot trial to evaluate their environmental and operational impact. 

Before rolling out the vehicles on a broader scale, Ninja Van will also consider variables such as potential difficulties for drivers such as the accessibility of commercial charging points and the driving range of a fully-loaded EV.

The electric vehicles have a range of up to 235km when fully charged and carry up to 1200kg.

Ray Chou, country head of Ninja Van Singapore, said sustainability is part of Ninja Van’s long-term goals, and it is important for the company to make the transition in a deliberate and calculated way.

“Doing so allows us to maintain the “hassle-free” service experience for our shippers and customers that Ninja Van is known for, and recognise greater benefits for both our business and the environment.”

The relaunch of the Eco Ninja Packs

Ninja Van’s environmentally-friendly pre-paid poly mailer packs – dubbed Eco Ninja Packs – were released last year, a first for the city state’s logistics sector.

Kooh Wee Hou, head of commercial at Ninja Van Singapore, believes the Eco Ninja Pack can play a major role in reducing the company’s overall carbon emissions footprint.

“This is a product that is ideal for business owners who want to do their part for the environment as the Eco Ninja Packs are biodegradable and do not release toxins during the incineration process,” added Kooh.

“Being sourced and supplied locally also means we are able to reduce carbon emissions incurred through air and sea freight.”

Customers can buy Eco Ninja Packs at S$3.80 a piece in a pack of five, or $3.40 a piece in a pack of 30.
