Green Post is planned as an exchange of best practices and lessons learned in postal delivery with electric and hybrid vehicles services. Green Post aims at improving energy efficiency and reducing air pollution in 4 EU Countries as Italy, Belgium, Hungary and Bulgaria. The postal agencies and universities of these four Member States will test the alternative vehicles in the implementation of their postal services. The tests results, together with support materials (such as impact environmental assessments and economic analysis, management and maintenance trainings) will corroborate the cost effectiveness and environmental benefits of the investment. The resulting experience, lessons learned and know how, will be systematized, shared and discussed, among all stakeholders, in order to stimulate the replication of similar initiatives (investments). The public will also participate through an intensive communication strategy.
