Spanish courier service Seur has announced it is aiming to decrease carbon emissions per package delivered by 30% by 2025. To help it achieve this goal, the company wants to deploy 100% emission-free delivery methods across 20 Spanish cities over the next five years.
This will see the incorporation of 500 electric or natural-gas vehicles into the company’s fleet, alongside the implementation of route optimization programs and the creation of a network of 103 charging points. Combined with the development of more urban hubs and a local pickup network made up of 2,300 convenience stores and smart lockers, Seur predicts this will reduce delivery-generated emissions by 51%.
“Aware of our responsibility to the planet and its citizens, we intend to be the most sustainable express transport company. We not only have part of the responsibility for climate change, but also the opportunity to be part of the solution. With this in mind, we have decided to act decisively by reducing our emissions in cities with the largest population,” explained Alberto Navarro, CEO of Seur.
