Amazon launches its fleet of e-cargo bikes in London for sustainable deliveries

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-07-05 11:25:32 – United Kingdom

Amazon has announced the launch of its first UK micromobility hub in Central London for more sustainable delivery.

The new hub's e-cargo bikes and walkers, coupled with Amazon's electric fleet currently on London's roads, aim to make over five million deliveries each year throughout more than 10% of London's Ultra Low Emission Zone.

Amazon established the new hub in collaboration with the London Borough of Hackney council, with intentions to make over one million customer deliveries each year, expanding the capacity of its fleet of electric vans. Amazon has over 1,000 electric delivery vans on the road in the United Kingdom, which helped the corporation deliver over 45 million products last year.

The new fleet of e-cargo bikes and walkers will replace thousands of regular van journeys on London's highways while also assisting in traffic congestion reduction. Additional zero-emission vehicles are scheduled to be introduced in the coming months as more e-cargo delivery hubs open around the UK.

The announcement coincides with the company's intentions to deploy large-scale solar panel installations at its sites in Manchester, Coalville, Haydock, Bristol, and Milton Keynes by the end of this year, in order to assist power those facilities with renewable energy.

These projects help Amazon get closer to its Shipment Zero vision, which calls for the corporation to deliver 50% of Amazon shipments with net-zero carbon by 2030 and accomplish the "ultimate goal" of net-zero carbon by 2040.

John Boumphrey, UK Country Manager at Amazon, said that their new e-cargo bikes, walkers, and increasing electric vehicle delivery fleet will enable them to make more zero-emission customer deliveries than ever before across London and the UK.
