Purolator adds 200 hybrids to Canada fleet

Purolator has added 200 hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) to its fleet throughout Canada—nearly doubling the company’s hybrid electric vehicle fleet, which is the largest fleet of hybrid electric vehicles for a logistics company in North America.

Among the many Purolator locations receiving new hybrid electric vehicles, 43 will be added to the Halifax and Dartmouth fleet, making Purolator’s fleet operating in the City of Halifax 100% hybrid electric. An additional 60 HEVs will be added in Guelph, while 19 will be added in Niagara, and finally, 79 in the Greater Toronto Area.

In Nova Scotia, Purolator’s hybrid electric vehicle initiative is partially funded by Conserve Nova Scotia through the ecoNova Scotia Fund for Clean Air and Climate Change.

Purolator has implemented a number of initiatives to reduce its environmental impact, including a strict no-idling rule for its drivers, a route optimization program that reduces overall distances travelled by vehicles, and environmentally responsible packaging.
