Poste Italiane strengthens the green fleet and continues to travel with clean energy even in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Fvg) region. There are 108 ecological vehicles in force in the 16 Distribution Centers of the territory that every day serve the 215 municipalities of the region, for a total of about one million 211 thousand inhabitants, about 562 thousand families, in over 431 thousand citizens and about 86 thousand businesses. 45 cars, 55 motorcycles, and eight new three-wheeled electric motorcycles make the delivery of parcels and correspondence environmentally friendly, easy, and safe.

The fleet renewal aims to reduce polluting emissions by 40%

The new tricycles are 100% electrically powered, have a power of 4 kW that guarantees a maximum speed of 45km/h, in line with the limits imposed by the highway code in built-up areas and have an energy autonomy of about 60 km, such as to allow letter carriers to deliver mail and parcels daily with a single charge. The particular conformation of the three-wheeled vehicle, moreover, increases its stability and safety for the driver and allows the installation of a special trunk that increases the number of transportable parcels and letters: up to 270 liters, compared to 76 of traditional motorcycles, a feature even more important given the constant increase of parcels to be delivered thanks to the important development of e-commerce.

The renewal of the company’s fleet with the aim of reducing polluting emissions by 40%, is part of the “ten commitments” program for Italian Municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants promoted by the CEO Matteo Del Fante during the meeting with the “Mayors of Italy” last October in Rome. It is also consistent with the widespread presence of Poste Italiane on the territory, with the attention that the company has always paid to local communities and less densely populated areas. The actual implementation of these commitments can be consulted on the web portal www.posteitaliane.it/piccoli-comuni.

“Every day we have about 33,500 vehicles that travel around the country – said Del Fante – so we care a lot about sustainability. We have set ourselves the goal of reducing emissions by about 40% by 2022, from about 11% of green vehicles to over 50%. Even our new Delivery Centers, like those in Bologna and Cazzago Brabbia – concluded Del Fante – are designed and built according to the highest energy standards.”

The “green” plan of Poste Italiane is in line with the ESG – the action plan on environmental and social sustainability approved by the Board of Directors in August 2018, which aims to ensure the definition of the Group’s guidelines with positive effects for the entire territory.
