How to Start a Green Courier Business

When gas hit $3 a gallon, Green Express, an Atlanta courier service business, switched to Toyota Prius hybrid electric cars.
Atlanta is one of the top 5 cities for traffic congestion, poor air quality and frequent smog alerts. In addition, everyone at Green Express has kids and did not want to contribute to the air pollution that has made Atlanta one of the worst cities for kid’s asthma.
Gas is one of the largest expenses of a courier business. After switching to electric hybrids, Green Express found their new fleet used 46% less fuel than their old cars, and averaged 47 miles per gallon.
An additional bonus is that electric hybrid cars are zero-emission vehicles when stuck in traffic or moving below 30 mph. At highway speeds they put out just one-third the greenhouse gases from conventional gas-powered cars.
As a direct result of becoming a “green courier service business,” Green Express has landed dozens of new customers who love the idea of helping to keep reduce pollution in Atlanta by supporting a cleaner delivery service.
Green Express also uses GPS navigation in every vehicle to boost efficiency even more by finding alternate routes to avoid traffic congestion.
An unexpected bonus of using the most efficient routes and zero-emission cars – customers now regularly use Green Express run personal errands as well, saving them time, money and reducing pollution even more.
If you plan to start a courier service, think green, as the fuel savings in your first year could go a long way towards paying for a new Prius or other hybrid electric car.
