Julian tests out new electric Royal Mail vehicles at Huntington

May 13, 2022

Yesterday Julian visited the Birch Park delivery office in Huntington to check out the 28 new electric Royal Mail delivery vans now distributing post across York, as part of the site’s move towards all-electric delivery.

13 dual charging posts have now been installed, making this one of 45 sites nationwide being upgraded to accommodate the 3000 electric vehicles Royal Mail are rolling out across their services.

This replacement of the old petrol and diesel vans will contribute towards reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality in York, with all electricity for charging them also being purchased through a 100% renewable tariff.

After trying out the vehicles and speaking to local posties about the improvements, Julian said:

“It was great to visit Birch Park today to see how Royal Mail are modernising their fleet and making their operations more sustainable. 

Residents in York will continue to receive the high quality, professional service they have come to expect from Royal Mail but only now it will be greener
, helping make our area that bit less polluted.

In our efforts to reach net zero, investments from businesses, such as switching to electric vehicles, are crucial and it is fantastic to see our city leading the way on this”.
