The new ecargo bikes are very popular with staff, who find them easy to ride and report that the exercise leaves them feeling both physically and mentally healthier. The old mopeds could cover larger distances faster, however the ecargo bikes can move more efficiently through traffic, which means that delivery times are reduced.
The ecargo bikes travel between 40 and 70 miles per day, and Shawn has increased efficiency by having a spare battery that can be swapped in when needed.
The cost savings are also significant. The mopeds cost over £6-£7 per day in fuel on top of expensive insurance and tax, whereas the ecargo bikes cost approximately 12.8-22.4p to charge per day*. 
The ecargo bikes are a selling point for customers too, who benefit from reduced delivery times and costs.
Shawn hopes that the ecargo bikes will not only help him to grow his regular customer base but will also increase the sustainability credentials of the business and give him peace of mind that he is helping to create a cleaner environment.
“eCargo bikes are a great way for small businesses to save money on delivery costs.”
