Unicell QuickSider Helps Purolator Deliver the Games, Wins Sustainability Star

Vancouver, BC, February 2010 – Unicell’s revolutionary walk-in van was at work during the Vancouver Olympics in February making deliveries to Olympic venues for Purolator, the official courier of the 2010 Winter Olympics.  The vehicle won a “Sustainability Star” from the Olympic Committee, who said this about it:

“The Quicksider is a battery-operated electric delivery vehicle —a first-of-its-kind for Canada’s courier industry. The vehicle will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 99 per cent compared to a conventional curbside delivery vehicle. Purolator’s Quicksider supports VANOC’s commitment to minimize the 2010 Winter Games carbon footprint. Through the Games period, Purolator will be tracking Quicksider-related measureable outcomes, as far as kilometres driven and greenhouse gas emissions saved.”
