In Norway the development of the postal service has always gone hand in hand with technical advances in communications – and often with the postal service leading the way. The theme for this stamp issue is Postal Vehicles.
The subjects are a 1932 Harley-Davidson (now in the Post Museum in Lillehammer) and a brand new Ford Connect Electric. Norway Post first invested in electric vehicles (Think) in 1994 and has since built up a considerable fleet of them. Starting in 2012, it has also purchased a number of vehicles that run on biogas and natural gas. Norway Post continues to lead the way, now as an eco-friendly enterprise.
