GLS Germany ups green credentials
GLS Germany has reported that, as part of its drive to help reduce pollution in cities, it has been steadily increasing its use of more environmentally friendly vehicles.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (24 May), GLS said that 75% its delivery vehicles meet the Euro 5 standard or higher for emissions – which is 15% up on last year. GLS said that its use of electric vans and scooters is increasing, and eBikes are now in use in seven German cities.
As Post&Parcel reported yesterday, German cities are now taking a strong lead on emission control and it was announced yesterday that Hamburg will be banning older diesel vehicles from using some of its streets at the end of this month.
