(PRWEB UK) 3 July 2011
FedEx parcel deliveries booked through the Parcel2Go website are about to get a whole lot greener thanks to a new initiative launched this week by the world courier firm.
Parcel2Go has been helping businesses and individuals in the UK to make international parcel deliveries abroad using FedEx's World Economy and FexEx's World Express services for years. And the good news is that shipping important consignments to the States and elsewhere just became an awful lot better for the environment.
The Memphis-based company has announced plans to add thousands of fuel-efficient vehicles to its fleet, while at the same time investing in more electric-powered vans. Over the next two months FedEx Express will more than double its fleet of electric vehicles, with 43 vans delivering parcels to major cities including Chicago, New York, London and Paris.
In addition, FedEx will complete upgrades to thousands of its conventional vehicles to make them more fuel efficient so they produce less emissions and are cheaper to run.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go said: "Parcel shipping companies across the world are looking at ways to improve their carbon footprint and place more reliance on renewable fuels and we applaud FedEx for announcing this initiative.
"When it comes to delivering packages to another country there are always going to be environmental issues to consider. We understand that Parcel2Go's customers are looking for services that will have the smallest impact on the planet as possible, which is why we are proud to offer services from FedEx."
Parcel2Go Ltd has been offering its customers a comprehensive range of UK delivery services and international shipping options through companies such as City Link for the past 21 years. Based in Bolton, the company operates a cost effective collection and delivery service throughout the UK, Europe, and countries across the world.
