The Mail Carrier that's Breaking Barriers

Unlike in Canada, where ‘save door-to-door’ signs are a common sight, the postal service in Germany does not need any saving. The Deutsche Post DHL is the world’s largest postal and courier service, so it’s no surprise that they are ahead of the curve in other areas as well. The Deutsche Post teamed up with a startup to create a zero emission electric delivery van. The ‘StreetScooters’ are profitable for the company and actually cost less in maintenance than regular vehicles, which puts the Deutsche Post ahead of Tesla and General Motors, who lose money on electric cars.
