Rewriting the Urban Delivery Playbook, One City at a Time
Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. The share of urban dwellers is expected to increase over the coming decades. This growth is only adding to the already common challenges of emissions pollution and congestion, caused not only by an increasing number of residents but also by surging e-commerce and new business models like ridesharing.
UPS is helping address these issues through electric vehicles and a range of delivery solutions powered by bicycles and tricycles—all of which operate with zero emissions. Pedal-powered vehicles are more maneuverable than package cars and can often travel places that other vehicles can’t, like bike lanes, sidewalks, and narrow city streets. They are ideal for making multiple deliveries in dense urban areas.
What began with one eBike in Hamburg, Germany, has expanded to more than 30 pilot projects in cities around the world. See some of our latest sustainable urban logistics solutions below.
