Stuart Delivery, the tech logistics company, has partnered with Vok Bikes to launch an on-demand e-cargo bike solution.
Couriers in London using the Stuart platform will gain access to Vok e-cargo bikes at ‘urban hubs’ through a short-term rental model.
Vok’e e-cargo bike features weather resistant built-in cargo compartments to help couriers deliver multiple orders at once.
The bikes are now available to couriers in Croydon and the surrounding areas of South London and across London by the end of 2022.
Julien Weyl, head of sustainability - Stuart, UK said: “Accelerating the transition to low emission vehicles is crucial to reducing our emissions, however couriers on our platform own their own vehicles and are often constrained in their ability to switch to using electric vehicles (EVs).
“Through partnerships with companies equally committed to sustainable mobility, like Vok, we are able to combat this barrier and make it easier for couriers to do so.
“This will not only contribute to lowering Stuart company emissions but also enable couriers to reduce their own personal carbon footprints too.“
In addition to partnering with sustainable mobility providers like Vok, Stuart is also building relationships with charging infrastructure providers as well as financial partners to incentivise and support couriers’ transition process to EVs.
