Evri has announced that they will be collaborating with Pedal & Post in Oxford's zero emissions area. Their goal is to provide the community with carbon-free deliveries.
Pedal & Post have allocated four EAV cargo bikes, which will be used to carry up to 600 packages each day and have the capacity to deliver up to 1,200 at peak times. This comes after Evri recently promised to increase cargo bike deliveries, expecting to reach over 500,000 by next year.
Each bike can carry a payload of 170kg and has a cargo volume of 2,000 litres. Additionally, Evri already uses cargo bikes in locations like Manchester and Bristol. This is a part of their larger plan to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2035.
Luke Turnball, a sustainability specialist at Evri, stated: “Pedal & Post were one of the first companies in the UK to launch zero emission bike deliveries and we share the same ambitions in leading the way in sustainable deliveries.”
CEO of Pedal & Post, Christopher Benton, also commented on the partnership. “We are excited to be supporting their journey toward net zero. It is so important that businesses like Evri have a clear strategy in place to reduce carbon emissions to make or cities healthier and better, safer places to live.”
