26 Jan 2021
Turkish Post, one of Turkey's oldest institutions, has added environmentally-friendly electric vehicles to its service range with the beginning of 2021 by leading another novelty. It is estimated that eco-friendly electric vehicles will facilitate the postal deliveries by ushering in a new era in the Princes’ Islands of İstanbul which have natural and historical beauties and are closed to motor vehicle traffic. In this regard, a total of 4 islands of İstanbul province has started to benefit from the new practice. Turkish Post, as one of the first institutions in Turkey which have started to use eco-friendly vehicles, has started its delivery works with three-wheeled electric vehicles and electric bicycles by putting one more innovative application into practice. Thanks to the new practice, citizens' postal items and parcels are delivered to their addresses faster with these nostalgic looking vehicles. The residents of the islands have shown great interest in these completely eco-friendly vehicles. It is aimed to reduce carbon emissions and protect natural beauties with eco-friendly electric vehicles as one of the priorities of the Turkish Post pursuant to its Strategy.
