THE Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) has deployed its environment friendly "Green Delivery" electric-assisted bicycles in the transportation and delivery of relief goods to communities and medical supplies for health workers dealing with Covid-19.

PHLPost is advocating #PusongPHLPost to emphasize the postal agency's role in fulfilling its avowed mission to serve the Filipino people in its own capacity during these trying times.

These "Green Delivery" electric bicycles are a landmark initiative of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), PHLPost, Pasig Transport, TailG, the Pasig Government and Clean Air Asia to assist the local government in the delivery of postal items.

Due to their mobility, these small electric vans and bicycles can penetrate narrow streets and roads for easy distribution of food packs and relief goods to residents staying at home while under strict Enhance Community Quarantine (ECQ) to help stop or slow down the spread of disease.

The vehicle is a pilot testing project to facilitate sustainable transport to thrive in the "Green City" of Pasig. It is one big step towards achieving a fully modernized postal system serving the needs of Filipinos using eco-friendly vehicles.

"What we have now in Pasig can be replicated in other parts of the country," PHLPost said.

PHLPost has recognized the importance of transitioning to cleaner mail deliveries by using eco-friendly vehicles for postman in the Philippines. Their mission: to deliver fast and efficient postal services anywhere in the country.
