As a shipping company, UPS is a bit of a low-hanging fruit. We all see its signature brown trucks with gold lettering, pumping carbon into the atmosphere all the while. However, UPS has begun to address this concern; it ordered 10,000 electric delivery trucks from Arrival to be deployed in North America and Europe. If all goes well, it may purchase 10,000 additional vehicles.
Other initiatives UPS is taking on to reduce its environmental impact include route optimization, green building certifications and carbon-efficient modes of transportation. These changes will increase efficiency and make its delivery operations cheaper, thus resulting in cost savings.
