Jebsen & Jessen Technology - Material Handling Division in Singapore leads the way in sustainability

Jebsen & Jessen Technology - Material Handling Division (MHE) is pioneering the transition of the Group’s service vehicles from conventional to electric. A fleet of seven vans has commenced operations, serving more than 300 customers all over Singapore.

MHE’s fleet in Singapore is now fully electric, which lowers diesel fuel expenditure by 66% and reduces carbon emissions and vehicle maintenance costs. Most importantly, the initiative complements the Group’s commitment to the Family Business Sustainability Pledge, which it signed in 2019.

“We are enthusiastic about proving that shifting to EV is feasible both operationally and cost-wise in Singapore. The business case is an advantage,” shared Karl Tilkorn, Regional Director of Jebsen & Jessen Technology - Material Handling Division.

MHE’s switch to EVs aligns with Singapore’s target of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 as part of its Long-Term Low-Emissions Development Strategy. An EV charging station has also been installed at the Jebsen & Jessen Technology office in Singapore, which benefits employees by allowing them to charge their cars on-site.
