What’s driving bike deliveries?
Sept 2019—A number of cities are experimenting with delivering packages by bicycle. In cities it can be hard for UPS to find a spot for their big, brown cubes. And in London, you have to pay a fee to drive during peak hours.
Seattle is already experimenting with cargo bikes, bikes with a trailer behind. But DPD in the UK thinks it has a better model. This electric bike has four wheels for stability but still fits in the bike lane. And given the weather there, the delivery drivers appreciate the cover.
