TNT is due to introduce seven brand new 3.5 tonne electric delivery vehicles in and around Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The new vehicles, to be purchased from BD Auto, will replace the current standard vehicles, enabling TNT to save 24,000 litres of diesel and 76 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
Managing Director for TNT Benelux, Erik Uljee, has said: “The partnership…is part of TNT’s corporate responsibility agenda and meets the objective of our Outlook strategy to increase efficiency and productivity. To support zero emission transport in city centres, the authorities extend certain privileges to TNT such as exemptions from parking bands and access to closed areas outside loading and unloading times. With the three vehicles in Rotterdam and four in Amsterdam, TNT’s electric fleet in the Netherlands is nine in total.”
