Swiss Post Joins EV100 to switch more delivery vehicles to electric
Swiss Post was one of the first national postal companies to join EV100 (Electric Vehicles 100).
Swiss Post, with its subsidiary Post CH Ltd, was the first major company in Switzerland to join EV100 in February 2019 together with Austrian Post. To accelerate climate action and to reach carbon neutral delivery, the company considers investing in a modern fleet of vehicles with energy-efficient, alternative drive systems and a well-designed logistics strategy of key importance.
Swiss Post has already electrified its mail delivery fleet consisting of 6,000 electric three-wheeled vehicles and now wants to switch 4,600 delivery vans up to 3.5t and 180 service vehicles to electric vehicles by 2030.
All of Swiss Post electric vehicles are 100% powered by “naturemade star”, certified renewable energy from Switzerland. Furthermore, Swiss Post supports the uptake of electric vehicles by its staff by installing charging infrastructure at its largest sites.
Since 2010, Swiss Post has been promoting electric mobility as part of its programme “pro climate – we act today” and as an important lever for achieving the Group’s goal of “increasing CO2 efficiency”.
EV100 brings together forward looking companies committed to making electric mobility the new normal by 2030.
