TNT Launches Bio-Fuel Pilot in India

Peter Bakker, Chief Executive Officer of TNT, said: "Environmental quality is a priority for TNT. More efficient and eco-friendly vehicles can help reduce the environmental impact of TNT's fleet. We are also pleased to contribute to the Indian government's bio-fuel policy."

The Indian government already promotes bio-fuel trains for transporting passengers and freight. Close to 44 million hectares--equivalent to two-thirds of the Netherlands' area--of degraded forest land are currently used in India for growing the vegetation needed for alternative fuel. Local farmers will benefit from growing bio-fuel crops, which can be a new source of revenues and jobs.
