Norway Post to add 330 electric vehicles to fleet

Norway Post has invested in 300 new electric vehicles to reduce the carbon emissions in its mail delivery operations. The company said the order was one of the “world’s largest single purchases” of electric cars.

Renault will be the main supplier for the vehicles, with Nissan providing a smaller number of electric cars.

The vehicles will be introduced over the course of the next year across the country as part of an “extensive” programme to cut climate change-causing emissions.

Norway Post said it was deploying “environmentally-friendly” vehicles in the parts of its business where they have been proven to be viable, both operationally and financially.

The vehicles will mainly be used in densely populated areas for mid-length delivery rounds.

“Significant results”

Dag Mejdell, the Norway Post chief executive who recently won the Industry Leadership award at this year’s World Mail Awards, said the vehicle purchase represented a “milestone” for his company’s environmental work.

“Posten Norge is one of the Nordic region’s biggest transport operators and our CO2 emissions are quite large,” he said.

“We are now seeing the rather significant results from the measures we have implemented. The purchase of new electric cars is one of the major contributors to us meeting our environmental targets.”

Norway Post said it now has more than 900 electric vehicles and trailers working in its mail distribution operations, used for various length of routes and topographical areas.

“We also use environmentally friendly fuel in 200 of our larger cars and we only buy new vehicles that live up to the leading environmental standards. Our investment in environmentally friendly logistics and mail distribution extends beyond the purchase of electric cars,” Mejdell added.
