UPS plans to add cleaner vehicles to its fleet by 2025

UPS wants to add more green vehicles to its fleet by 2025.

United Parcel Service (UPS) announced on Tuesday that they want to add more green vehicles to their fleet by 2025, as part of the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

UPS is an American package delivery company with the headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and with offices in about 200 countries around the world.

In 2016, about 16% of their vehicles were clean vehicles, and they plan to increase the share of the clean vehicles in their fleet at 25% by 2025.

The company stated that the clean vehicles added to the fleet will be vehicles running on alternative energy (electric, hybrid, natural gas and propane).

Globally, UPS operates today at ground level a number of 114,000 cars, vans, tractors and even motorcycles used to deliver packages to their customers.

In order to reduce emissions, the company also plans to get more fuel for its ground fleet from alternative energy sources (other than diesel and gasoline).

If the share of the alternative fuel used by company’s vehicles in 2016 was only at 19.6%, they want to bring this share at the level of 40% by 2025.

In 2016, UPS got 0.2% of its electricity from renewable energy sources, and plans to increase this level at 25% electricity from renewables by 2025.
