AMAZON deliveries across London are set to become more sustainable, as the e-commerce titan today launched its first fleet of e-cargo bikes and walkers.
Stored in Amazon's Hackney hub, the new fleet will make more than one million deliveries a year across 10 per cent of London's Ultra Low
Emission Zone (ULEZ).
This will be in addition to the four million net zero deliveries carried across the capital by Amazon's electric vans. The move is part of the firm's pledge to be net zero by 2040.
"Our new e-cargo bikes, walkers and growing electric vehicle delivery fleet will help us make more zero emission customer deliveries than ever before across London and the UK in the coming months," said Amazon's UK manager John Boumphrey.
Amazon also announced it will roll out more than 30,000 solar panels across some of its facilities - including Manchester and Milton Keynes.
Transport minister Trudy Harrison said the move will boost jobs as well as protect the planet.
