PostNL to replace third of delivery fleet with natural gas vehicles

LinkedIn +

European post and parcel delivery provider PostNL has announced that it will replace 400 diesel vehicles with more than 400 compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles by the end of 2017 – nearly a third of its entire delivery fleet.

The purchase of the natural gas delivery vehicles is part of PostNL’s efforts to make the company more sustainable. Under the heading, Natural PostNL, the company is replacing its company vehicles and placing solar panels on the roofs of parcel sorting centers. Delivery vans have also been equipped with route guidance systems and are loaded in a way that ensures optimum carrying capacities.

Albert Rodenboog, board member and chair of the Sustainability Council, PostNL, said, “When a diesel van is due for replacement, we currently replace it with one that runs on green gas. Together with the almost 140 green delivery vans already in use, this brings the total to at least 550 vehicles.”
