With this partnership, Metapack will provide management and tracking software for Zedify and Metapack customers can now use Zedify for deliveries in the United Kingdom (UK).
The partnership follows an integration with Homerr in May, a network of 2.000 local delivery points in the Netherlands and Belgium. And only last month, Metapack partnered with HIVED for electrical delivery in the UK.
One of the main reasons behind this set of new alliances between Metapack and several last-mile delivery companies is to create a sustainable logistic network in the UK.
“With 70% of consumers noticing the carrier delivering their order, brands can be confident that choosing cargo bike deliveries will give them a competitive edge on sustainability”, Zedify’s CCO Jon Williams said.
Zedify has been a pioneer in implementing cargo bike deliveries across the UK.
Sustainable delivery has grown more important to customers shopping online, especially in recent years. According to a survey by Metapack among 3,000 Europeans, 75 percent of shoppers consider a more sustainable delivery. For over 30 percent of consumers, sustainability is the deciding factor when choosing a delivery option.
E-cargo bikes, a popular sustainable option for inner cities, are expected to be used for 20 percent of deliveries, Deloitte found. Earlier this summer, Amazon announced its own bike fleet hub in London. DPD has also been investing in e-bikes in the past few years.
