An innovative partnership marks a first for both the courier and
VANCOUVER, Sept. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Two of Vancouver's leaders in their
respective industries - Novex Delivery Solutions and Modo The Car Co-op
- announce a groundbreaking partnership in which Novex drivers make
deliveries using Modo's carshare vehicles. Both organizations have been
recognized for their innovative approaches to business and this is the
latest announcement in a long list of achievements.
Along with this partnership, Novex is proud to launch its Guaranteed
Green delivery option for its clients. Through this program, Novex
guarantees that the delivery is made via a mode of sustainable
transportation: bike courier, hybrid, electric, or green carshare
vehicle. This program benefits both clients who are eco-conscious and
Novex, which has pledged to reduce its carbon footprint by 70% by 2015.
"We've been eager to start offering our Guaranteed Green service and
this strategic partnership with Modo is a key part of the program,"
says Rob Safrata, CEO of Novex. "Our drivers can now choose to make
deliveries by carsharing with Modo, saving them the burden of car
ownership. And our clients will benefit from peace of mind, knowing
their delivery is part of a sustainable transportation network."
"By using Modo vehicles to make deliveries, Novex is showing the world
that carsharing works for many different transportation needs," says
Tanya Paz, Modo's Business Development Director. Modo already has more
than 275 business members - organizations that carshare for work -
including the City of Vancouver with about 520 employees carsharing,
but this is a first that puts couriers into carshare vehicles. "Novex
reached out to us and we could see how serious they are about achieving
their environmental goals and reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.
We're very proud of this partnership."
Modo The Car Co-op is a not-for-profit co-operative with about 8,000
members sharing 250 vehicles in Metro Vancouver. For more information
