Slovenian postal operator Posta Slovenije said it has signed a deal with local electricity and gas trading group GEN-I to cooperate in the field of e-mobility and green next-generation delivery services, which will see it entirely electrify its fleet.
The aim of their partnership is to transform fright delivery services by offering environmentally-friendly and efficient green packet delivery via electric vehicles powered by pure solar energy or other non-carbon sources of electricity, Posta Slovenije said in a statement posted on its website earlier this week.
Together, the two Slovenian companies want to accelerate the transition of delivery solutions from the fossil era into the e-mobility period, while also serving as a driving force for next generation delivery solutions in South East Europe, Posta Slovenije said.
"The partner ecosystem that we are building today combines the best of both worlds - logistics and electricity. We will offer an alternative e-delivery service in cities and enable urban residents to breathe in with full lungs", a member of the management board of GEN-I, Danijel Levicar, is quoted saying.
Posta Slovenije has a fleet of over 1,100 vehicles and 2,000 motorcycles and bicycles.
