London is combatting poor air quality and pollution with an electric delivery fleet. The sustainable solution to delivery service relies on electric vehicles to deliver parcels. The Gnewt Cargo package is helping the iconic city do their part to combat rising CO2 levels and employ greener practices. As well as curbing emissions and fighting climate change, putting more electric cars on the road could help with estimated 10,000 people who die every year as a result of the air in London.

The "last mile delivery service with a green and socially responsible twist" uses a fleet of all-electric vehicles to deliver approximately 20,000 packages on a daily basis. The electric delivery company also recently received more funding from London's transport authority. Other cities are also turning to green alternatives for delivery, including cyclist and pedestrian options.
