Amazon Launches Its First Fleet Of E-cargo Bikes In UK
Amazon announces the launch of its first micromobility hub in UK in order to increase sustainable deliveries. According to the which, the first fleet of e-cargo bikes and walkers from its new hub are already started rolling out on the streets of London. The company plans to make over 5 million deliveries in a year in order to reduce carbon emissions. Amazon said that this will cover more than 10% of the London’s Ultra Low Emission Zones.
The New Micromobility Hubs will Ensure More Sustainable Deliveries
Amazon is working with the London Borough of Hackney to create this new micromobility hub. The tech giant plans to make more than 1 million deliveries each year, along with its millions of deliveries being accomplished by electric vans. However, the new fleet of e-cargo and pedestrian deliveries are going to replace thousands of traditional vans that are making trips across London. As a broad objective to reduce traffic congestion and zero carbon emission, the company is planning to expand its micromobility hubs in other parts of the UK in coming months.
“Our new e-cargo bikes, walkers and growing electric vehicle delivery fleet will help us make more zero emission customer deliveries than ever before across London and the UK,” said John Boumphrey, the UK Country Manager, Amazon.
