(postnl) PostNL (the Netherlands) now delivers large amounts of business mail in Amsterdam using electric cargo bicycles. Mailboxes in Amsterdam are now also emptied using electric cargo bicycles. As of this month, June 2017, PostNL will also deliver parcels in the evenings on e-cargo bicycles. In Amsterdam, PostNL is thus replacing 100 Diesel delivery van rides with sustainable e-cargo bicycle delivery. This will reduce carbon emissions by approximately 60,000 kg per year. This way, PostNL wants to contribute to clean city centers and improve accessibility in the city centre. After Amsterdam, the other major Dutch cities, like Utrecht, The Hague and Rotterdam, will follow.
