HOW IT WORKS
We are working with the businesses listed below.
Just place an order with them, either online, over the phone, or in store, and request cargo bike delivery.
We collect and deliver your goods to you, emissions free, by electric cargo bike.
Working with local
Many local businesses of all types have been hit really hard by the impact of lockdown, we want to help them get trading again, and we want to avoid more car and van traffic happening as a result.
The impact of diesel and petrol engine air pollution on our air quality is significant. Hastings has an estimated 49 deaths every year resulting from air pollution.
As more people are ordering more things for delivery all the time as a result of Covid 19, we think there is a much better way of doing ‘last mile’ deliveries.
Why we are doing this?
The Covid 19 virus crisis has brought many things into sharp focus. One of these things is our air quality and pollution levels.
We want to help local businesses reach their customers and deliver their goods in a way that helps us all breathe better air.
Electric cargo bikes have been proved to be an excellent solution for last mile deliveries in towns and cities around the world.
With a carrying capacity of around 100kg, and the speed and ease of use of a bicycle, they have been shown to be more efficient in time than van use in a study by Sainsbury’s in London.
Also in London is the inspirational company Pedal Me, who have been leading the way with e-cargo bike logistics in the UK for the last 3 years.
