Although the busiest package delivery days of the year are now behind us, that doesn’t stop UPS from moving forward. UPS is continuing to find innovative ways of going green. One of their newest projects is testing a new form of package delivery. A pilot program in Portland, OR utilizes solar powered tricycles, pedaled by the delivery driver, to deliver packages. If the program is a success they plan to implement it in other areas as well. With the large number of vehicles in UPS’s delivery fleet, the impact changes like this have on the environment go to show that UPS may have brown uniforms and trucks, but they continue the push to be more and more green.
