PostNL goes emissions free in Leeuwarden

PostNL has announced that it will make all of its post and parcel deliveries in central Leeuwarden using ‘emission free’ vehicles.

The postal operator made the announcement on its website, where it said it is replacing all its vehicles that operate in the centre of Leeuwarden this year with BEV vans and small electric vehicles that PostNL referred to as ‘Stints’.

PostNL added: “Parcels are delivered by electric vehicles from a central transfer point in the city. Letters are already delivered by emission-free means in Leeuwarden, either by bike or on foot. Sustainable delivery also fits in with the city of Leeuwarden’s ambition for a clean, exhaust fume-free centre.”

The company plans extend its green logistics with “the ambition to make its deliveries completely emission-free in 25 town centres by 2025”.
