bpost grows its green fleet

bpost has reached another landmark in its green transition with the arrival of 22 double deck trailers.

The new additions augment the current fleet of 16 DDTs, five of which are equipped with solar panels. Some 38 trucks will be hooked up to double deck trailers by the end of 2024.

These green-decorated trailers, which have been gradually replacing the standard trailers at bpost since 2020, will help cut the number of journeys and the distance covered by 30% by 2030, and 40% by 2040. They can each carry 60% more parcels and letters per journey than the largest trailers currently on the road. ​The 22 double deck semitrailers are equipped with advanced options. Each comes with a movable floor and solar panels on the roof to supply the energy needed to operate the movable floor and the lifting tailboard.

Currently, the fleet of 621 trucks consists of 345 tractors and 276 trucks.

  • 50 of these vehicles are powered by LNG (with the rest running on diesel).
  • bpost is  gradually replacing existing trucks with ones that meet the Euro standard.

The rest of the fleet is made up of 349 trailers, including 16 DDTs. By the end of the year, the total number of DDTs will be 38. bpostgroup plans to procure more than 100 double deck trailers by 2030.
