DHL adds two types of alternative-fuel vehicles to U.S. fleet
DHL, a provider of shipping and logistics services, has introduced two different types of alternative-fueled vehicles in the United States.
The first, an all-electric, 14-foot delivery van, will have its first use in Manhattan, 'where it will have an advantage in the stop-and-go conditions that are common in grueling, densely packed metro markets,' DHL said in a statement.
DHL is also deploying a hybrid diesel-electric 26-foot truck in Los Angeles, 'primarily moving large containers of packages,' DHL explained. The hybrid truck has a 40 percent improved fuel economy, and reduces emissions up to 90 percent.
