The Future Of Urban Delivery Is Electric Cargo Bikes

6804 ratings | 999876 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

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.

@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 (5 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.

The two dudes using them do not look thrilled at all about riding around in the rain. I think commuting back and forth to work in the rain is one thing but working in it all day does not equal fun.

Good concept, but I guess they will start blocking cyclying lanes. Kind of a weird legal position as well. I bet it only has pedals so it counts as a bicycle legally and can drive on its own just fine.
MrCarlRobinson (2 months ago)
The cargo bikes come under the power cycle laws, here’s an excerpt. Pedelecs (Pedal Electic Assisted Cycles) or EPACS (Electronic Power Assisted Cycles) are much like bicycles however when pedaling the rider gets progressive assistance from the electric drive system. There are many different types of electric assisted bike, the most popular and highest selling pedelec is the sub 250 watt pedelec/ sub 25 kmh bike.This lower power vehicle does not have to be type approved like motorised vehicles and is regulated through CEN standards, (with work ongoing to make a global ISO standard), it is seen as essentially a bicycle by all public authorities. These bikes have an assisted motor of up to 250 watts and a speed of 25 kph before the motor cuts out There are also higher powered pedelecs which are regulated within type approval, even though they are pedal assisted they are viewed as motorised vehicles by the EU authorities, here are the two relevant categories for these vehicles; L1e-A “powered cycles” – of speeds up to 25 kph and power cut out at 1000 watts L1e-B for “mopeds” – of speeds up to 45 kph and power up to 4000 watts The Cargo bikes are generally in the L1e-A category.

DHL is the largest and best carrier, others will be forced to follow, food delivery is already dominated by bicycles in cities this only makes sense.

Why on earth do they need helmets for sitting and riding at that speed? That'll do nothing in a collision with a motor vehicle and is worthless! Wear proper hats or none!

Many bicycle courier companies in the states folded when companies like Amazon cut pay for deliveries and companies like eat 24 offered to take over logistics and declared bankruptcy dragging the companies they contracted with down with them.
