Sustainable logistics
We’re taking responsibility

Anchor Navigation

People, companies and the environment are close to our heart – including in our core market of logistics. We take responsibility and focus on sustainability wherever we can. To protect the climate, we conserve resources and reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles, products, services and processes. Our sustainable logistics has a positive impact on our environmental footprint – and also on that of our customers.

Our goals

  • We will gradually convert to delivery by electric vehicles by 2030
  • We will be completely carbon neutral in our operations from 2030.

#YellowGreen – e-mobility, not emissions
We’re acting now for tomorrow

For our logistics, we have the largest fleet of electric vehicles in Switzerland. In Zurich, Bern and Geneva, we deliver all letters and parcels with Swiss Post’s own electric vehicles, free from CO2 emissions. And by 2030, we will gradually implement delivery of all letters and parcels by electric vehicles throughout Switzerland.In the meantime, we are using around 6,000 three-wheel scooters and 1,000 electric delivery vans for deliveries.

With targeted measures and new technologies, we are reducing our CO2 emissions in order to be carbon neutral in our own operations by 2030. This is how we are contributing to saving the environment and the future of our planet. By delivering with electric vehicles in Zurich, Bern and Geneva, we are saving around 2,012 tonnes of CO2 each year, which is equivalent to travelling 252 times around the Earth by car.

CO<sub>2</sub>-free delivery by Swiss Post: IKEA case study

  • With over 7,000 electric vehicles, we operate the largest electric fleet in Switzerland. It currently comprises around 5,950 electric three-wheel delivery vehicles, 1,000 electric four-wheel delivery vehicles and around 600 other electric vehicles. By 2030, all 10,500 delivery vehicles will be switched to alternative drive systems. 
  • This enables us to deliver around 55.4 million parcels and 1.5 billion letters with no CO2 emissions every year. In Bern, Zurich and Geneva alone, our e-vehicles serve almost 1.5 million households.
  • By the end of 2025, we will also deliver all letters and parcels CO2-free using Swiss Post’s own electric vehicles in Basel, Biel/Bienne, Köniz, Lucerne, Lugano, Uster and Winterthur. By the end of 2030, we will deliver CO2-free throughout Switzerland using electric vehicles.
  • From 2030, 20 percent of the kilometres travelled by Swiss Post’s own vehicles and 5 percent of those travelled by transport partners will be powered by alternative drive systems.
