UPS Takes Eco-Friendly Deliveries Across California
As part of its eco-friendly delivery scheme, UPS is putting 100 new electric trucks on Californian roads. It already has 30 electric trucks delivering goods on the roads of Europe and New York, as well as 2,500 alternative fuel vehicles – run on electricity, hybrids, natural gas and such like – in its worldwide fleet. The latest vehicles will take goods as far as Cali’s West Coast cities of Bakersfield, Fresno, Sacramento and San Bernardino. With each vehicle boasting 75 miles per charge, let’s hope they don’t run out before they reach their destinations. No-one likes to receive dead flowers or melted ice cream on their doorstep!
UPS’ plans to launch the 100 electric vehicles started back in 2011. Let’s wait and see what they’ll achieve in the next two years….
