Iveco solutions for mail & parcel delivery
Iveco participates to Post-Expo 2006, that has started today in Amsterdam, thus confirming its strong interest in the mail & parcel delivery industry. Iveco supplies operators a full product range, flexible to bodywork requirements and environment friendly thanks to compressed natural gas (CNG) power solutions that ensure ultra-low emissions.
The stand setting is selected to highlight continuity with the Iveco presence at the Hanover IAA Motor Show, with a curved red wall to reflect the “family feeling” cultivated by Iveco and now more obvious than ever in the styling of Daily, Eurocargo and Stralis.
At Post-Expo Iveco exhibits two “parcel delivery Daily” with the livery of two key clients as well as the prototype of a light, low environmental impact vehicle specifically designed for urban delivery in the framework of the European project FIDEUS (“Freight Innovative Delivery of Goods in European Urban Space”), already shown in Hanover. The Iveco stand also hosts a Stralis in TNT livery and two representatives of the Iveco vehicles’ power excellence: Tector CNG 6 cylinders and Cursor 13 Euro 5 engines.

Iveco: the ideal partner for parcel & delivery operators
Iveco establishes a close partnership co-operation with its clients in the mail & parcel sector – among which DHL, TNT, FedEx, UPS, GeoPost and every national post agency in Europe – with a view to optimise bodywork and running costs.
Co-operation with the customer is the approach Iveco adopts to deliver the most appropriate transport solutions for any operation needs. Flexibility of Daily, Eurocargo and Stralis is evident in vehicle design, apt to allow any bodywork fast, and at low cost.

FIDEUS: urban delivery and environmental care
At Iveco, attention paid to the environment is a corporate value, evident in its vehicles anticipating by years European emissions regulations thanks to advanced power solutions as a result of technologies developed to guarantee excellent performances both financially and in terms of low environmental impact.
The FIDEUS vehicle on display at Post-Expo is characterised by innovative solutions for the urban transport of goods with provisions for, over the short- and mid-term, reducing environmental and traffic impacts with no adverse effects on transport efficiency and safety.
The FIDEUS Daily’s livery incorporates colours and symbols of DHL and TNT, partners in FIDEUS, as well as the three project slogans: “Ergo Load”, “Green Van” and “Urban Delivery”, which are synonyms for:
• advanced solutions for optimising loading and unloading operations;
• great attention for the environment, no only for its emission levels – lower than Euro 5 and EEV (Environmentally Enhanced Vehicle) limits, thanks to its compressed natural gas powered engine – but also for excellent consumption performance and extraordinarily low noise pollution;
• excellence in driving safety and efficiency thanks to innovative assistance devices.
The FIDEUS project (“Freight Innovative Delivery of Goods in European Urban Space”) is co-financed by the European Commission within the sixth Framework Programme. FIDEUS is co-ordinated by the Fiat Research Centre and has been developed in co-operation with Iveco, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology in Berlin, DHL, TNT, the Hanover region, Mizar Automazione, Renault Trucks, Impacts, University of Westminster, Municipality of Lyon, ECA. The project started in 2005 and will end in 2008. During some development stages of the FIDEUS Daily prototype, Iveco is technically supported by the University of Genoa.
