  • New technologies reduce environmental impact
  • Expansion of Deutsche Post DHL’s green fleet

Deutsche Post DHL, the world’s leading postal and logistics group, further expands its fleet of about 11,500 vehicles with alternative drive systems and aerodynamic modifications. DHL introduces two so-called Teardrop trailers as well as one LNG-Truck for the first time in Belgium. The vehicles will be operated by DHL partner Ninatrans. The aerodynamic form of the teardrop-shaped trailers featuring a curved roof reduces air resistance, cutting fuel consumption by 5 to 10 percent compared to regular heavy-load trucks. The LNG-Truck, which runs on natural gas, in addition supports the green transport solution. By adding to its green fleet, Deutsche Post DHL not only acts on its environmental responsibility but also benefits from decreased fuel use. The teardrop trailers, built by Don-Bur, and the LNG-truck, built by Iveco, will contribute to the continuous efforts of both DHL and Ninatrans to reduce CO2 emissions.
