Spain - Postal Cover from Denmark (2013)
Europa Postal Vehicle

The 2013 Europa theme is Postal vehicles.

Since 2011, Post Danmark has replaced many of the old bikes with modern electric bikes that make the postmen’s work easier, more efficient and greener. 

Many of the old, polluting gasoline mopeds have also been retired from service.

‘Postal Vehicles’ is the theme of this year’s EUROPA stamp. The Danish stamp shows the new three-wheel electric bicycle Post Danmark has developed in collaboration with the Danish bicycle manufacturer Nihola. The electric bicycle has been introduced as part of the efforts to cut Post Danmark’s CO2 emissions by 40% by 2020.

The advantages of electric bicycles
These innovative and eco-friendly bikes are adapted to the needs of modern postal delivery. They can carry more mail than traditional postal bikes and are both safer and faster. As an additional benefit, they are very stable even in very bad weather.
