Evri has announced a new partnership with cargo bike delivery firm Pedal & Post to provide carbon-free home deliveries in Oxford’s Zero Emission Zone.
The parcel delivery company already uses cargo bike in Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester and Wimbledon, and this latest partnership is part of Evri’s wider sustainability strategy to reach net-zero in direct and indirect carbon emissions by 2035.
Pedal & Post will use four EAV cargo bikes to deliver up to 600 parcels per day, increasing to 1,200 during Evri’s peak period. It follows Evri’s recent commitment to triple its parcel deliveries by cargo bikes to over 500,000 within the next year.
Commenting on the partnership, Luke Turnbull, final mile sustainability specialist at Evri, said, “Pedal & Post were one of the first companies in the UK to launch zero-emission bike deliveries and we share the same ambitions of leading the way in sustainable deliveries.
“We’re excited to be partnering with such experienced experts in cycle logistics. Cargo bikes are an important part of our commitment to reach net zero by 2035 and will help build our network of sustainable delivery options.”
Christopher Benton, CEO at Pedal & Post, added, “We’re delighted to partner with Evri to sustainably deliver parcels to customers in Oxford. We are excited to be supporting their journey toward net zero. It’s so important that businesses like Evri have a clear strategy in place to reduce carbon emissions to make or cities healthier and better, safer places to live.”
