Sea Electric powering Ikea’s last mile ambitions

All Purpose Transport have launched Queensland’s first electric truck, ready to help Ikea cope with its Christmas and New Year rush.

Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads the Hon Mark Bailey MP praised the collaborative leadership in innovative clean energy technology.

“Well done All Purpose Transport on their first 100% electric home delivery truck for their clients like IKEA in South East Queensland,” he said.

Ikea announced earlier this year that 100% of their last mile deliveries will be zero-emission by 2025, an objective made all the more ambitious given that Ikea uses contractors – such as All Purpose Transport – to make those deliveries right around the world.

Brisbane’s first zero-emission truck is a Hino 300 with a body by Prestige Truck Bodies, underpinned by Sea Electric’s SEA-DriveĀ®120a all-electric power-system.
