Ministry of Environment prepares to convert small diesel vehicles for delivery to zero-emission vehicles

[에너지신문] The Ministry of Environment has announced that it will strengthen support for the conversion of small diesel trucks for delivery to zero-emission vehicles.

The Ministry of Environment (Minister Han Hwa-jin) said that it will strengthen support for the smooth implementation of the system and preparations for the related industry before the new permit for small parcel delivery trucks, which are scheduled to be implemented on April 3, 2023, and restrictions on the use of diesel vehicles when adding or borrowing 3 work said

According to Article 28 of the Air Quality Management Area Act enacted in April 2019, new permits for small parcel trucks (currently 48,000 units), which mostly use diesel as oil, are granted new licenses, and the use of diesel vehicles is restricted when adding or lending. .

To this end, the Ministry of Environment recently held several meetings with the Korea Integrated Logistics Association and four major domestic courier companies such as CJ Logistics, Hanjin, Lotte Global Logis, and Rosen Parcel, which account for 80% of the domestic parcel delivery market, to convert small parcel delivery trucks into pollution-free vehicles. We have been discussing support measures such as △ electric vehicle subsidy support △ electric vehicle charging facility support △ public relations plan.

First, the Ministry of Environment investigated the amount of electric vehicles to be converted to electric vehicles by 2025 through the Korea Integrated Logistics Association through the Korea Integrated Logistics Association to support the conversion of electric trucks.

Currently, the Korea Integrated Logistics Association is investigating the required quantity of all domestic courier companies, and according to the 1 ton electric truck supply project (plan), 410,000 units in 2022, 55,000 units in 2023, 70,000 units in 2024, and 85,000 units in 2025 are expected to be supplied. plan.

In particular, we are discussing with relevant ministries about ways to revise the relevant guidelines so that a certain amount of electric trucks can be preferentially supported for delivery next year, and to diversify subsidy support methods to respond to the industry’s mass demand.

However, the Ministry of Environment is in the position of the Ministry of Environment to make efforts on its own, such as making a contract as much as possible in advance considering that it takes time for shipment for the quantity of electric trucks needed in the delivery industry.

In addition, the Ministry of Environment plans to promote the 3rd public contest for the ‘Emission-Free Vehicle Conversion Brand Project by Region’ if there is additional demand from the industry to support the establishment of electric vehicle charging facilities, and urged the delivery industry to actively participate.

In the past, applications from the parcel delivery industry were continuously encouraged during the 1st and 2nd brand business competitions, but only one application was submitted due to the industry’s own plans.

In the industry’s own plan, Courier A must be separately applied for and installed through the Korea Energy Agency’s ‘Electric Vehicle Charging Installation Subsidiary Project’, and Courier B will be installed after examining the feasibility of the planned site through a separate charging company in the industry, and Courier C will be installed in early 2022. Some of the necessary quantities have already been installed, and they have suggested that the need for additional installations within this year is low.

In addition, the Ministry of Environment announced that it will seek solutions through continuous communication with related organizations such as the industry, related ministries, and production companies for the issues discussed through the meeting.

Meanwhile, in the case of purchasing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) vehicles instead of pollution-free vehicles due to the restriction on the use of diesel vehicles, 1 ton vehicles produced by December this year or the direct injection (LPDi) type with improved performance (to be released in December 2023) of vehicles can be purchased.

Park Yeon-jae, director of air environment policy at the Ministry of Environment, said, “The government will do its best to help the courier industry and the borrowers themselves switch from diesel vehicles to zero-emission vehicles.
