Partnering with e-cargobikes.com, Co-Op is launching a new zero emissions online grocery delivery service across the UK.
Initially the e-cargo-bikes are to be used around the King’s Road Co-Op store in Chelsea and is to be rolled out across London in reasonably short order.
The scheme will enable shoppers to have their goods delivered within two hours. E-cargo-bikes can use cycle routes and can access more of an urban area than motorcycles or vans.
Chris Conway, Head of Food Digital at the Co-op, said: “This is an exciting time for the Co-op. As the leaders in convenience shopping, we want to look at different ways of bringing our award-winning products closer to shoppers, and this new service with e-cargobikes.com does exactly that.”
e-cargobikes.com offer a disruptive, zero-emission last-mile delivery platform for grocers and retailers throughout the UK as an alternative to van-based last-mile delivery.
James FitzGerald, Managing Director of e-cargobikes.com, said: “We are thrilled that Co-op are demonstrating environmental leadership by launching their online delivery service using e-cargobikes.com. We are reimagining grocery deliveries and exploring a more sustainable transport system – our e-cargobikes are able to deliver the same amount as a diesel-van over a shift but require only 0.5% of the energy.”
