Three-wheeled, electric-assist e-cargo cycles capable of pulling up to 180kg of cargo are to be trailed by DHL Express working with REEF Technology for deliveries in Miami. Each e-cargo cycle will replace a conventional delivery van.
For the Miami pilot, DHL will carry up to nine cargo containers for the e-cargo cycles. The containers will be delivered to REEF’s hub where they will be connected to the cycles for last-mile inner-city deliveries in the morning. They will then be reloaded for outbound shipments in the afternoon.
Ken Russell, commission vice chair whose district includes downtown Miami, said, “I’m proud to have sponsored many of the City of Miami’s mobility ventures. This is another excellent partner in our efforts to balance the needs of residents and businesses in our urban core.”
