New revolutionary project launched: E-bike Delivery
Packeta launches a new project riding the sustainable wave: delivery on electric bikes!
The main focus of this project is lowering the carbon footprint which is a huge topic within our sustainability mission. When delivering via bikes, we can also reach customers unreachable otherwise.
Parcel delivery via bikes is now a common standard in the world and we want to bring the same here. Bike delivery is an environmentally friendly way of parcel delivery that has proven excellent, especially for last-mile delivery. And what´s more, equipped with bikes we can reach customers unreachable by car—for example those who live in historical parts of towns.
In April 2022, we tested bike delivery for the first time.
☻ Compared to regular delivery by car, the e-bike daily saves 10,4 kg CO2e.
☻ The parcel storage box at the front of the bike has a capacity of 380 liters which stands for approximately 50 medium-sized parcels.
☻ The bike alone with an empty storage box weighs about 200 kilos.
Couriers on e-bikes
Our couriers have a full day ahead when delivering on our e-bikes because riding a bike and delivering parcels in a busy metropolitan city is not as easy as it might seem.
☻ Couriers on bikes can deliver between 60 to 70 parcels a day.
☻ They can cover up to 80 kilometers.
☻ Currently, we are using the e-bike delivery for last-mile home delivery across Prague 15 with expansion plans for June 2022.
