Lessons From Our eBike Journey
UPS is exploring a range of solutions to make deliveries within cities more efficient and with zero emissions, including with electric bicycles and tricycles. We launched our first eBike delivery pilot in Hamburg, Germany, in 2012. Today, we are working on more than 30 urban logistics projects in cities worldwide.
After nearly a decade of collaborating with city stakeholders on more sustainable logistics solutions, we’ve learned a lot about which options work best in different areas. This experience has enabled us to identify and scale the right combination of solutions, such as electric vehicles, bikes, and even drones.
Here are a few examples of how we’re applying these insights to new projects.
