Aramex, a global logistics and transportation systems provider, has included 14 battery operated scooters into its fleet for operations in Mumbai, India as part of its commitment to environmental sustainability.

Aramex, which aspires to be a carbon neutral company, will utilize the battery operated scooters to reduce its carbon footprint globally and to bring an environmentally-friendly fleet into its operations in India.

The introduction of the battery operated scooters complements Aramex’s long term goal of migrating 78% of its fleet to low emission vehicles, reducing its fuel consumption by 21%, and converting all Aramex vehicles to unleaded fuel.

Aramex country head (India) Percy Avary said that switching over to battery operated scooters within Mumbai is a pilot project the company plans to expand at a later stage, demonstrating its commitment to extending its corporate citizenship through its dedicated environmental initiatives.
