Pos Aviation takes a bold step towards green mobility

Pos aviation, a division of Pos Malaysia, is dedicated to investigating further sustainable options, just like its parent company.

POS Aviation, a leading player in airport ground handling services, is embarking on a groundbreaking journey towards sustainability and innovation with the initiation of a proof of concept (POC) involving electric vehicles (EVs) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 1 and 2 (KLIA Terminal 1 and 2).

Central to this pioneering initiative is the company’s commitment to reduce its environmental impact and enhance operational efficiency.

In the POC trial, the Hangcha Aviation Tractor Model QSD320-XD2-MI (HCSD320-MI), an advanced electric vehicle tractor, will be put to the test in an authentic airport setting.

The primary objective is to assess the viability and advantages of transitioning from their existing fleet of over 60 diesel-powered tractors to environmentally friendly EVs.

Pos Aviation’s sustainability initiative involves deploying EVs to significantly reduce its carbon footprint and enhance the airport operations’ environmental efficiency.

By adopting EVs, the company expects lower maintenance costs and higher energy efficiency, enabling substantial operational savings. These savings will be directed towards advancing sustainability initiatives and environmental conservation efforts.

The one-month trial period commenced on Nov 1 and concludes on Dec 1 this year. Throughout this duration, comprehensive data will be meticulously collected and analysed to evaluate the performance, efficiency and environmental benefits of the EV tractor.

Should the trial yield positive outcomes, Pos Aviation is committed to transitioning its entire fleet to electric vehicles.

Upon the successful completion of the trial, Pos Aviation envisions an ambitious roadmap that involves the widespread deployment of electric vehicles across various facets of its operations, encompassing baggage and cargo handling, as well as maintenance services.

This comprehensive approach seamlessly aligns with Pos Aviation’s dedication to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.

As a subsidiary of Pos Malaysia, Pos Aviation shares the same commitment as its parent company in exploring additional sustainable alternatives. Together, both aspire to contribute significantly to a greener and more environmentally conscious future, fostering a paradigm shift in the aviation industry’s environmental practices.
