Last week, TNT Express Benelux successfully launched its first inner-city ‘green’ bicycle in Brussels. The electric-powered freight bicycle, known as a ‘cyclocargo’, will cut TNT’s CO2 emission output by 400 kilograms per week.
Firm handshakes and high fives characterised the camaraderie and competitive spirit among TNT drivers who met head-to-head in early October in the global 4th Annual Drive Me Challenge Final.
Sixteen of the transporters top-ranking pick-up and delivery (PUD) drivers descended on Valkenburg, a former military airfield in the Netherlands once used by the Dutch Royal family.
For the first time ever, transport sector competitors, TNT and DHL, jointly organised and participated in a driving competition called the DriversChallenge. The unique event saw pick-up and delivery (PUD) drivers from both multinationals competing for the title of best driving team.
Rivalry, though, was far from their minds. This friendly competition was about partnership.
United National Environment Program (UNEP) and TNT organized a Clean Fleet Workshop for 20 operational and cr managers from TNT, subcontractors and other companies from the Middle East & Africa region. The Clean Fleet Workshop helps managers to develop a strategy for reducing the envrionmental impacts of their fleet.
