More and more companies understand that using bikes & cargo-bikes relieves congestion in cities and saves money. DHL Netherlands replaced 33 trucks with 33 cargo bikes, thus saving 152 metric tons of CO2 and € 430.000 per year. ‘In the Netherlands, 10% of all our vehicles are bikes’, said Arne Melse from DHL Netherlands. The trend is accelerating. From our pilots in four EU countries we see that, indeed, it is possible to deliver by cycle.’
