UPS, however, is going green by ordering vertical takeoff and landing electric (eVTOL) aircraft.

The aircraft UPS intends to use is the ALIA-250c manufactured by Beta Technologies.

However, UPS views this as a positive as the aircraft will replace ground transport, which takes longer, and small feeder aircraft, which are environmentally unfriendly and require airports for takeoff and landing.

‘These new aircraft will create operational efficiencies in our business, open possibilities for new services and serve as a foundation for future solutions to reduce the emissions profile of our air and ground operation.

Although only 10 eVTOL aircraft have been ordered, UPS has the option to increase the purchase from Beta to 150 aircraft.
