Last mile delivery has been a long-standing problem for the delivery industry, especially in busy cities like London where traffic congestion and limited parking spaces make it challenging for delivery vans to reach their destinations. The traditional method of delivery, using fossil fuel-powered vehicles, not only contributes to traffic congestion and air pollution but also increases the cost of delivery and delivery time.
However, a new solution is emerging in the form of e-cargo bikes, and it is shaking up the last mile delivery scene in London. E-cargo bikes are electric-powered bicycles designed to carry cargo and packages, and they offer a more environmentally-friendly and efficient solution for last mile delivery. The use of e-cargo bikes significantly reduces the carbon footprint of delivery, as they emit zero emissions and do not contribute to air pollution. Furthermore, e-cargo bikes can manoeuvre through traffic and tight spaces easily, making them a more efficient option for delivering packages in busy cities like London.
One company leading the charge in London’s last mile delivery scene is Fin, a start-up that is dedicated to providing faster, greener, and cheaper delivery services. Fin exclusively uses e-cargo bikes for all its deliveries, making it the first and only company in London to do so.
