UK Delivery Company Rethinks Fleet

Electric quadracycles replace traditional vans for some delivery applications.

UK-based delivery company DPD has started testing electric assist cargo bikes in parts of the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Portugal and France. The environmentally-friendly quadracycles can cover a range of up to 100 km in a day and cover 100 parcel stops on a single charge. 

“This is an entirely new type of vehicle and is designed specifically to meet the current challenges for delivery firms in the urban environment,” said Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO. “It is highly manoeuvrable, can carry a good day’s worth of parcels and can often get closer to delivery addresses than the vans. We know that the environment and climate change matter more than ever to our clients and the feedback we get when we share our EV vision with them is really positive.”
