The 31 postwomen and men will make their rounds in the postcode zone 4100 in sustainable vehicles from the Esplanade de l’Avenir delivery centre. The fleet currently consists of 45 electric vans, but this number will rise over time as the fleet is renewed.

Says Pierre Goosse, Seraing Mail Center Manager : "bpost is acting in a steady but purposeful way for the environment. With regard to the Seraing postcode zone it’s a winning strategy for inhabitants and for our own people. Our postwomen and men make their regular rounds in new quieter, more ecologically friendly electric utility vehicles. This has required slight adjustments and a new approach to driving as we are switching to automatic vehicles. But we are proud to be able to say that we are now driving change!"

Sustainability, yes, but the same quality standards!

bpost wants to reduce its ecological footprint while making fast, efficient deliveries. The company is always looking for ways to improve the sustainability of its logistics processes. With this in mind, Ecozones – zero-emission delivery zones – are a significant solution for delivering parcels in a more ecologically friendly way. Seraing is the latest addition to the list of zero-emission towns and cities in Wallonia, but the same approach has been adopted in Brussels and Flanders. Indeed, today also sees the announcement of a new Ecozone in Ostend in the Flemish Region. In doing so, bpost continues its fight against climate change by focusing on sustainable initiatives, such as green deliveries in a growing number of towns and cities throughout the country.
