TNT has launched a pilot project in India to use bio fuel for its delivery vehicles. The initial phase will see specially trained drivers run three bio fuel trucks between Pune, Nasik and Bangalore, covering a total of 45,000 kilometres per month.
Routes and driving times are optimised to further reduce carbon emissions. If the project proves efficient, TNT intends to expand it within its Indian fleet of vehicles.
TNT’s bio fuel pilot project in India is part of the company’s global ‘Driving Clean’ initiative to improve its environmental performance. TNT is already using alternative fuels and technologies in a variety of pilot projects in the Netherlands, the UK, Germany and Australia ‘Driving Clean’ initiative to reduce carbon emissions.
