Replacement‘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, said Albert Rodenboog, Board Member and Chair of the Sustainability Council. One in five green gas vehicles in the Netherlands will soon be a PostNL vehicle.
Natural PostNLThe purchase of these delivery vans fits in PostNL’s approach of making greener deliveries. PostNL is taking ongoing steps 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 centres. Delivery vans also use the smartest delivery routes and vehicles are loaded in the optimum way to ensure that the least amount of ‘air’ is transported.
