Pošta to electrify its fleet in cooperation with Gen-I


The deal was signed in Ljubljana on Tuesday by Pošta Slovenije director general Boris Novak and Gen-I CEO Robert Golob, with the latter saying that e-mobility was a must and that the need for green delivery services was great.

The partners will cooperate in digital integration of e-delivery vehicles, development of the supply chain for e-vehicles and solutions which will enable e-delivery vehicles to be charged with electricity from renewable sources.

"We don't want to limit ourselves to the Slovenian market. We will try to create a product which would be internationally attractive," Golob said, adding that they were primarily focused on Central and Southeast Europe.

Novak added that modern logistics meant certain limitations brought by environmental policies. Ljubljana is such a case, as it is closing the city centre, he said, adding that the company was following the trend of innovative solutions.

Andrej Rihter of the Pošta Slovenije management board, said the company has been trying for almost a decade to electrify its fleet, which numbers more than 1,100 vehicles and more than 2,000 motorcycles and bicycles.

The foundations of the business model are expected to be set by the autumn, after which the start-up is to be established. "Start-up approach is faster," he said, adding that "we want to be a modern logistics company."
