Purolator Adding 200 Hybrid Electric Trucks to Fleet

December 15, 2009

OAK PARK, MI - Purolator Courier Ltd. has placed an order for an additional 200 Balance Hybrid Electric delivery trucks from Azure Dynamics, making it the manufacturer's highest volume Balance Hybrid Electric order since the product launched in the summer of 2008.

The new trucks join approximately 205 other Azure trucks already at work in Purolator's fleet. The trucks, integrated on a Ford E-450 chassis, will be delivered in 2010.

"Purolator is a responsible corporation that protects and preserves the environment by reducing the impact of its operations and services," said Serge Viola, director, national fleet and ground line haul for Purolator. "Our new order of Azure's hybrid electric trucks reflects our continued confidence in the performance of their vehicles. Meanwhile, the technology helps us by substantially reducing tailpipe emissions, reducing operating costs and improving fuel economy and up time."

Viola was recognized at the 2009 Green Fleet Conference as one of this year's commercial fleet Environmental Leadership Award winners.
