16 September 2010 – TNT Express France is deploying 15 zero emission electric vehicles for parcel deliveries in Paris, including one Modec truck, two cars, and twelve 3-wheelers. The “Maxitrikes” electric tricycles are perfect for dodging traffic jams. Each one has a volume capacity of 2 m3 and can carry up to 175 lbs. TNT will use them to deliver about 20,000 parcels (below 30 kg) per month to some 12,000 Parisian customers. The Modec truck, with its payload of 2 tonnes, will be used for bigger deliveries. TNT Express France now operates a total of 45 zero emission vehicles in ten cities.
