The Chronopost Portugal, Renault Portugal and LeasePlan established a trade agreement that will allow the renewal of a part of the fleet of express mail operator. The deal, which involves 280 cars of the Renault Master and Renault Trafic, will allow the Chronopost reduce its environmental footprint in almost 100 tonnes of CO2 per year. The fleet of Chronopost traverses more than 16 million miles per year, so that the sustainability of its activity "was decisive in the choice by Renault's proposals", according to the company. "In a business like ours, the concerns of cargo space, by aspects inherent in driving our distribution operators, reducing the cost of use and minimizing their impact on the environment are the prioridads in the choices of fleet renewal," explained Managing Director of Chronopost, Olivier Establet. The Chronopost holds 13 stations on Portuguese soil â" Vila Real, Porto, Guarda, Viseu, Coimbra, Leiria, Torres Novas, PÃ³voa de Santa Iria, Lisboa, Seixal, Ãvora, Faro and Funchal. The company works with a fleet of 350 vehicles and heavy 10 distribution, employing 750 people.
