UPS announced today that it has deployed five eBikes in Copenhagen, one in Stockholm and one in Aarhus as part of its global effort to improve the sustainability of its deliveries. As a result of these new alternative fuel vehicles being introduced, UPS operates three fewer 7.5-tonne diesel delivery vehicles in Denmark and one less diesel delivery vehicle in Sweden every day.
“By replacing 240 daily stops of fossil fuel vehicles in Copenhagen, 60 in Stockholm and 50 in Aarhus with eBikes, we are helping to reduce emissions and congestion in city centers. Copenhagen and Stockholm plan to be carbon-neutral cities by 2025 and 2040 respectively, and as a company looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint, we are proud to be part of this effort,” said Frank Jørgensen, country manager, UPS Nordics. “UPS has set itself the ambitious goal to reduce the absolute greenhouse gas emissions of its global ground operations by 12% by 2025. Increasing our use of eBikes is an important part of how we plan to achieve this goal”.
