Zedify expanded their operations with a clean and efficient delivery service using ecargo bikes.
Brighton & Hove City Council leased 13 ecargo bikes to support local businesses in changing the way they deliver goods and services across the city. This is to help contribute to the goal of carbon neutral by 2030.
Zedify are a full logistics service for local businesses to deliver internationally. Zedify were looking to expand their operations and to take on new customers to maximise local benefits to the city with a clean and efficient delivery service. Prior to benefitting from the ecargo bike accelerator project, Zedify were covering 400 miles of deliveries a week with a fleet of seven bikes. They were launched to innovate and expand zero-emission delivery services and so being able to use ecargo bikes for transport was a huge benefit.
Their original ecargo bikes offered:
Reduced delivery times on congested streets
Cheaper operating costs compared to cars and vans
High load capacity, with their ecargo bikes able to carry up to 250kg
Through the ecargo bike accelerator project, Zedify received five additional ecargo bikes, including the following models:
1 x Urban Arrow Cargo XL
2 x Cycles Maximus
2 x EAVcab
Zedify say, “The addition of five ecargo bikes to our fleet has almost doubles our capacity; we are now seeing higher density routes and new business opportunities arise due to our ability to collect and drop more orders across Brighton and Hove.” The additional capacity has also improved the service area and delivery turnaround times for local customers. The new ecargo bikes offer many advantages including:
Lower operating costs than vans
CO2 savings compared to a diesel van
Zedify’s ecargo bikes are a great example of positive change. and currently use the ecargo bikes to deliver around 2000 packages per week across the city.
