PostNL brings electric vans into operation

PostNL has brought the first two electrically-driven Renault Master Z.E. vans in Europe into operation.

In a statement posted on its website today (31 May), PostNL announced that Liesbeth Kaashoek, Director Parcels and Logistics at PostNL, received the vans from Jean-Paul Renaux, Managing Director Renault Benelux.

The postal operator will use the vans to make emission-free parcel deliveries in the city centres of Utrecht and Leeuwarden. The vans will also be used in Amsterdam.

PostNL added that it will put a total of 17 Renault Master Z.E. models into use in 2018.

Liesbeth Kaashoek, Director Parcels and Logistics at PostNL, said: “PostNL invests in sustainability. For example, we are building our new parcel sorting centres using the most sustainable materials and placing solar panels on the roofs. We are also making our vehicle fleet greener with several types of electric cargo bikes, scooters, and cars. This is why we are proud to be the first in Europe to use the electric Renault Master Z.E delivery vans. They enable us to deliver parcels emission-free in the city centres of Utrecht and Leeuwarden, and later in other cities as well.”
