Furthermore, Padar pointed out that in the near future 10 per cent of its fleet could run on alternative fuels. Currently, Eesti post operates daily with 417 vehicles, 18 of which are natural gas vans. “We have seen very good results. Cost-benefit analyses have been even better than we dared to hope”, the executive said about NGVs they had bought between 2010 and 2011.
“We intend to sell off gasoline and diesel-powered minivans Renault Kangoo vans and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The sold vehicles are replaced with more economical and environmentally friendly ones”, Padar said last march when the company launched the vehicle fleet renewal programme.
Within 2012 and 2013 the firm responsible for postal service in Estonia plans to replace approximately 220 vehicles.
