DHL Hybrid Trial and go Biodegradable

Delivery company DHL is also on the trail of eco vehicles with the announcement, earlier this year, that they would trial two Daimler hybrid vehicles in the UK. They will also try two Mitsubishi Fuso Canter Eco Hybrid vehicles as part of the company's wider commitment to reducing its impact on the environment.

Bet their PR organisation is in a bit of a ‘flap’ hearing that their rival UPS (see below) has ordered 200 hybrids (not just trying them out for evaluation).

That said it seems that DHL is trying hard by replacing all their delivery bags with recyclable and reusable ones which only take two years to biodegrade. The normal ones take 1,000 years to degrade.
