The Future Of Urban Delivery Is Electric Cargo Bikes

7344 ratings | 1054369 views
DHL Express, the world's leading international express services provider, is piloting a new City Hub concept that will enable increased use of cargo bicycles for inner-city deliveries. The City Hub is a customized trailer which can carry up to four containers for the DHL Cubicycle, a customized cargo bicycle which can carry a container with a load of up to 125 kg (one cubic meter in volume). A DHL van delivers the trailer into the city center, where the containers can be quickly loaded on to two Cubicyles for last-mile inner-city delivery. It can then be reloaded for outbound shipments. The solution significantly reduces emissions by minimizing the mileage and time spent on the road by standard delivery vehicles. Each City Hub can replace up to two standard delivery vehicles, with an equivalent CO2saving of over sixteen tons per year and a significant reduction in other emissions

Too much junk and too expensive. The electric bicycle used by the Chinese express company is completely closed. It is much better than this. No manpower is required. It is only 1,000 dollars, and the speed is very fast and efficient.

This is stupid. The Liberals and Globalists have jacked the world up so bad that people are now being forced to live in RVs and get about on bicycles. Bicycle powered delivery is backwards, not progressing forwards. Soon the 1st world will look like the 3rd world.

Excellent! But why is there no caboose on the bikes? Obviously they are being used in shtty weather. DHL too cheap to protect and take care of their employees. This is NOT just a question of environment, DHL saves billions on these bikes compared to trucks. The very least they could do is put a caboose on the bikes.

But, their legs have to move? Why should humans be active? Drivers don’t get jobs driving because they want exercise LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Dumbazz muthapukaaaz

That's awesome, only thing left to do is get rid of all those profit sucking humans, then you'd reduce the carbon footprint and reduce labor cost at the same time .

Pay more money to the couriers instead of CEOs. In my town they are under payed and consequently have low motivation. But I love that everything is done to try and make the delivery better!

All the SF-Express man here in China are using electric trycicles to transfer goods for many years. And all of their urban trucks are already electrified. But their bike and truck really need some industrial design cause they are really not so good looking

Exactly. I'd ditch my well-paid office IT job at any time for this. When I think about it, maybe I should create a company that does this. Package delivery has always been a pain whenever I'm waiting for something or sending something.

The cargo box, and the weight, can be lowered at least 6 inches by lowering the rails the boxes sit on. I would not be happy if I had to ride one of these in the rain while being completely exposed. A windshield and roof at least would help a lot and not add more than 5 kilos. Other than those things, it looks great to me. I may buy one and make it into a camper.

well, a soft roof to have better protection against elements would be nice. Especially when riding in more horizontal position like in those bikes. Deliver post by bicycles for the last kilometers has a long tradition in Germany.

What a asinine idea and a waste of engineering time and skill. delivery’s made quickly nothing beats the internal combustion engine there’s enough bicycles aggravating drivers already

DHL is an awful company to work for. I can't imagine delivering on one of these bikes and have dispatch constantly pestering you.
Big Dummy (6 months ago)
@Jim Goodwin Thank you for the kind comment. I'm glad you are receiving great service from DHL! Hopefully, you have a group with positivity working your route. My experience comes from working with DHL as a courier in the Southeastern USA. Some of the people I worked with could care less about about a persons parcel. The company was really sketchy. The company places unrealistic expectations on it's employees. I want to write a book or be a whistleblower about what I saw and experienced that would blow your mind. Just like many large companies, you are treated more as a number than a person. Like I said, that is my experience and I hate to sound negative, but it is the truth unfortunately. If you get a chance, I highly suggest watching the Documentary: Billionaire. It is about the founder Larry Hillblom. Take care and have a wonderful weekend! Peace

I've been using couriers for over 20 years and have to say DHL is by far the best we've ever experienced. I'd like to thank you for being part of that......

What about bad weather, injuries, security, road conditions and what will breakdowns cost? Just convert or trade in for electric vehicles instead.
Tony Hardy (7 months ago)
They already have all those liabilities as it is, this will lower them, especially on break downs, road conditions, injuries. Since they are not road trucks they have nothing to do with bad road conditions, they drive around them. Since they are not real trucks the service and maintenance on them is less and cheaper. And since they are not involved in high speeds, and not involved in driving on the highways, they will have less accidents and injuries. Once everyone is using electric trikes and bikes in the city, there will be no cars running them over because everyone will be on a bike, trike, or quadricycle. If you are driving a car or truck and you hit a person on a bike, trike, or quadricycle, then you will be charged as running over a pedestrian, and lose your drivers license, be fined around $15. 000, and face possible jail time. They tell you driving is a privilege and they will that that privilege if you drive around running over pedestrians.
