DHL brings supply chain expertise to Eve operation
The aim is to work out how to supply operators and service centres with spare parts, particularly batteries and the transport, storage and disposal thereof. Both want to reduce the environmental impact of the supply chain.
DHL's expertise will be vital to ensure the safe and agile operation of eVTOLs.

Eve Air Mobility and DHL Supply Chain are to jointly conduct a study of key demands and supply chain characteristics for Eve's eVTOL operation. Their primary goal is to explore and understand best practices for supplying operators and service centres with spare parts and inputs, with an emphasis on batteries and the specific requirements concerning transport, storage and disposal of those devices. Other aspects reviewed will include modes of transportation, frequency and delivery plan, required logistics partners, potential locations for advanced inventories, physical and technological infrastructure requirements and contingency plans.

“We are transforming urban air mobility, which also brings logistical challenges. DHL's expertise in this field in the aeronautical market and dozens of other industries, coupled with the innovation mindset of both companies, will be vital to ensure the safe and agile operation of eVTOLs,” says Eve vice president of service sand operations Luiz Mauad. “In addition to offering high-performance logistics, our premise is to reduce the environmental impact of the supply chain in line with our purpose of offering more sustainable products and services.”

“We are very excited about the opportunity to shape the future of mobility with Eve Air Mobility. Initiatives like this are part of our ESG mission, and we are contributing all our knowledge and experience to make this another great successful project developed by the Brazilian aerospace industry, with benefits for major cities around the world,” adds DHL vice president of the automotive, technology and consumer sectors Mauricio Almeida.

The logistics study from Eve and DHL will encompass the distribution of parts and materials required for repairs and maintenance. Another crucial aspect to be considered is battery logistics, which holds significant importance in this business model and is where DHL has much expertise from various industries. The companies will also evaluate supply chain management for general supplies to vertiports.

Currently Eve says it holds the largest backlog in the UAM industry with up to 2,850 aircraft. The first eVTOL deliveries and entry into service are expected as early as 2026.
