Electric vehicles for our posties
We have started to introduce electronic delivery vehicles, or eDVs, to our delivery fleet, providing a safer and more sustainable vehicle for our posties. We also have 2,622 electric bikes in the network and will add a further 1,000 eDVs over the year ahead.
This will see our electric fleet increase to almost 4,000 vehicles, making us one of the nation’s largest electric vehicle fleet operators.
As well as having additional carrying capacity so that our posties can deliver parcels, the eDVs are safer, with increased rider protection and lower on-road speeds, reducing our posties’ exposure to incidents and serious accidents.
They will also help us achieve our commitment of reducing our carbon emissions by 25 per cent by 2020.
