Businesses leading the charge

We caught up with five separate companies who all use the same cargo bike to transport their goods, the Urban Arrow Cargo XL. The below case-studies not only reveal just how versatile Urban Arrow cargo bikes are, but also just how much of a difference businesses can make if they look to use cargo bikes as part of their logistics model.

 

 

FM Conway

‘Utilizing eCargo bikes has made our carbon footprint even smaller, we have so far done 7000 miles since we’ve had these bikes in the past 18 months, and in doing so we have saved around 6.2 tonnes of Co2e versus a traditional small van’.

Oxwash

‘With Oxwash on track to be the world’s first net-zero commercial laundry service, we have to provide a transport solution that is aligned with our company-wide mission. If all of our collections in 2021 had been done by diesel vans, that would have resulted in Co2 emissions of approximately 124 tonnes.’

Lucy Vail Floristry

'Being a florist, we need to be able to stand out from the madding crowd against a sea of other vendors in London and the UK. I was initially attracted to eCargoes by the huge branding and advertising opportunities that can come with it. To have a rider cycling with a beautifully wrapped box is a real head-turner and provides far more of a lasting impact on the end-consumer than a diesel van.’

E5 Bakehouse

‘We are currently doing 40-50 drop offs a day across Hackney and Shoreditch. Making a sourdough loaf is a time intensive process, it’s good for us to know that once the bread has been fermented and baked for that day, it can get to our customers in its freshest state. It would send the wrong brand image for us to use a diesel or petrol van when the bikes are far quicker and better on the planet.’

Ecofleet mindful delivery

‘Since we started in September 2019, we have done over 99,823 drops which is equivalent to over 115,544 miles! This simply could not have been achieved with a more traditional form of transport.’
