Co-op launches new online delivery service with e-cargobikes.com

Co-op has launched a new online delivery service with e-cargobikes.com, which will initially be available to shoppers around Chelsea, before being rolled out to further London stores.

It is the first time the Co-op has offered online delivery via a dedicated website using e-cargobikes.

Chris Conway, head of food digital at the Co-op, said: “This is an exciting time for the Co-op. As the leaders in convenience shopping, we want to look at different ways of bringing our award-winning products closer to shoppers, and this new service with e-cargobikes.com does exactly that.”

The zero-emission last-mile delivery platform for grocers and retailers has generated interest from the retail, logistics and cycle sectors. Last year, e-cargobikes.com completed a trial with Sainsbury’s.

James FitzGerald, managing director of e-cargobikes.com, said: “We are thrilled that Co-op are demonstrating environmental leadership by launching their online delivery service using e-cargobikes.com.

“We are reimagining grocery deliveries and exploring a more sustainable transport system - our e-cargobikes are able to deliver the same amount as a diesel-van over a shift but require only 0.5% of the energy.”
