SingPost: we will be delivering a greener Singapore for everyone

Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) is  is  piloting  fully electric three-wheeler scooters and vans, with a view to replacing all of its current internal combustion counterparts in its postal service and Speedpost delivery fleet with fully electric versions by 2026.

SingPost intends to progressively switch its entire internal combustion engine fleet of more than 700 motorcycles and three-wheeler scooters, as well as 140 vans to electric motor equivalents as their COEs expire over the next five years, making SingPost the first postal service in the Asia-Pacific region to commit to a 100% electric delivery fleet.

Vincent Phang, CEO of Postal Services and Singapore said: “As Singapore’s leading last-mile and postal service provider, our delivery vehicles traverse the length and breadth of the nation every day. There is tremendous potential for us to do better for the planet. By converting our delivery fleet to a fully electric one, we will be delivering a greener Singapore for everyone.”

Welcoming the pilot, Mr Tan Kiat How, Minister of State for the Ministry of Communications and Information and Ministry of National Development, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift towards e-commerce, and the postal sector would need to evolve its business model and service offerings to cope with the surge in parcel volumes.

In this regard, I welcome SingPost’s electric vehicles trial and its ambition towards a fully electric delivery
fleet, in support of Singapore Green Plan 2030. This shows SingPost’s commitment to environmental sustainability, and as well as its continued investment to better meet the evolving postal needs of our people and businesses.”

The scooters emit roughly 75%1 less greenhouse gases compared to their internal combustion engine equivalents.
