Today’s headline story: Romanian Post upgrades fleet with 200 new vans

The Romanian Post has announced it is has purchased 200 vans as part of a €3.86m fleet upgrade.

The new vehicles, none of which are electric, now make up 20% of the company’s entire vehicle fleet.
The vans were purchased using Romania Post’s own funds, as well as a loan secured with state-owned EximBank some two years ago.
Commenting on the announcement, Valentin Ștefan, general director of the Romanian Post, said:
“With this investment, we took another step towards the modernisation and further scaling of the company’s mobility. The 200 vans represent approximately 20% of the Post’s car fleet. We are continuing to renew the old fleet, which will help us to optimise the quality of our parcel services.”
