Counting on …day 1.060

2nd March 2023

Pedal power for delivery vehicles is already happening. Cycle courier services have been around for many years now as bikes are often far quicker than any other vehicle for short  urban journeys – and of course have been used by Royal Mail for centuries. Likewise Co-op’s use of bikes for grocery deliveries is not new. Freddie’s flowers – a weekly flower delivery service is also fulfilled by bike. Cycle delivery services such as Peddle Me, carryout same day deliveries for a variety of clients including  coffee roasters, breweries, flower suppliers, film companies, local authorities, community kitchens, charities, restaurant chains and numerous food suppliers –  “You name it, we deliver it”! They also offer a taxi service for people too! 

Hammersmith and Fulham Council have set up ‘Parcels not Pollution’ – a delivery service that uses an e-cargo bike for business deliveries in Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush town centres.

Tradespeople people carrying out repairs, redecorations, window cleaning, laundry services etc are also making use of cycle power.
