Norway Post and Bring aim to use only renewable energy sources in vehicles and buildings by 2025. We are constantly looking for new solutions to reduce our emissions. One of the measures is to use environmentally efficient vehicles, something the new electric trucks are a very good example of, says regional director Hans-Øyvind Ryen in Norway Post.
