Liesbeth van Tongeren, Alderman for Sustainability, Environment, Energy Transition of The Hague: “As the municipality of The Hague, we do a lot to ensure that parcels are delivered in a cleaner way. For example, there is an environmental zone that the most polluting trucks are not allowed to enter. With the national Green Deal, we are encouraging suppliers to bring goods only with their cleanest truck or van. I see more and more beautiful sustainable initiatives in the city. Good to see that we are working together to ensure a clean and liveable city.”

Barry Nieuwland, PostNL driver: “I am pleased that we now deliver parcels with LEFVs in my city center in The Hague. With these narrow cars, cyclists can pass more easily and we can deliver in every alley. I like to drive them, because they maneuver easily in between and I get a lot of positive reactions. And because they are electric, they drive cleaner and quieter. That is good for the environment and the climate and makes this form of delivery extra suitable for the city center of The Hague.” Emission-free delivery The LEFVs are part of PostNL’s spacious 803 electric vehicles. In addition, 42 % of its own fleet is more sustainable because of the use of biogas, BIO-LNG, sustainable fuel and electric buses. Thanks to our sustainable sorting centers, mail and parcels 91 % CO₂ – neutrally sorted. PostNL delivers the mail and letterbox packages emission-free to 202% of the Dutch home addresses. .

After Arnhem and Groningen, The Hague is the third city in the Netherlands where PostNL delivers parcels with LEFVs. The LEVVSs are produced in the Netherlands and have been further developed especially for PostNL for parcel delivery.
