Pos Malaysia Berhad (“Pos Malaysia” or “the Group”), the national post and parcel service provider is on a mission to be net zero by 2050, and as part of that journey, today took delivery of 50 electric motorcycles from Motosikal Dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd (“MODENAS”), the assembler of MEV-1, and DRB-HICOM EZ-Drive Sdn Bhd (“AVIS”), the leasing provider of the MEV-1 programme.

Pos Malaysia is committed to genuine environmental responsibility as it executes its sustainability roadmap and leads the way as a lighthouse example in the logistics sector of what you can do, all aimed at delivering for its employees, customers and the planet.

Pos Malaysia Berhad’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Charles Brewer said “This marks an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship.

We are fully committed to our purpose statement to be passionate about building trust to connect lives and businesses for a better tomorrow, and we aim to have converted all of our last-mile vehicles from ICE to electric by 2030. Simply put, we will deliver cleaner and greener!”
