Home delivery in some cities can easily become a real nightmare. Traffic jams, pollution, constantly congested streets, building work, pedestrianised streets, narrow roads, restricted areas for large tonnage vehicles, environmental restrictions… This all leads to last-mile service companies at their wits’ end every day. With the wrong blueprint for the service or the wrong vehicles, the delivery times and expenses of a company may be affected by these circumstances and their products can thus be spoilt and their customers be left unhappy.
Last-mile solutions for urban areas must always bear in mind the conditions under which the routes are to be carried out. And companies must choose the vehicles that best suit them. That’s why not just any solution will do to make sure the service is successful. If delivery times are to be met and all types of streets and spaces are to be reached, however narrow they are, a solution must be adopted in accordance with the issues faced by delivery in the city.
The bicycle as a sustainable, optimising alternative for routes
The bicycle is one of the most frequently used vehicles for last-mile as it is a sustainable alternative, has very small dimensions, does not require any special licence or permit to ride it… What’s more, medium or small packages can be transported on them easily, reaching any space in short time periods, without pollution, fuel costs and barely any maintenance and usage costs. It is also very easy to transport and store it and many of them are folding. Basically, a vehicle which optimises any type of urban route meaning that any location can be reached avoiding or getting around those obstacles intrinsic in the city and offering record times.
If in addition to all these advantages of opting for the bicycle as the main delivery service of a company you add the performance offered by electrification, success is assured. Electric bicycles make the riders’ work easier, improving their comfort and safety as well as achieving lower delivery times and so the products being delivered arrive in better conditions. With this vehicle, companies can reach all kinds of spaces, circulate in pedestrianised areas, narrow streets, get round traffic jams and avoid being part of the urban pollution problem.
