Canada Post tests e-cargo trikes

Canada Post tests e-cargo trikes

 This week Canada Post has begun  testing e-cargo trikes in selected areas of downtown Montréal as an environmentally friendly option to deliver packages.

Over the next three months, trained employees will operate the trikes on some downtown routes. Canada Post has worked in collaboration with the City of Montréal, Coop Carbone and Jalon on this proof-of-concept project as part of the Corporation’s ongoing efforts to better serve customers, improve environmental performance and help reduce urban congestion.

Canada Post purchased two trikes for the test and will operate them out of the delivery facility on Bridge Street. The employees who volunteered for the project will follow a bike lane from the facility parking lot to reach Montréal’s larger bike trail network, for which the trike delivery routes were designed.

The project will help to assess not just the viability of the trikes as delivery vehicles in certain locations, but will also inform the development of the best safe-work procedures and design features.

This initiative is one way Canada Post is investing in innovations and technology to reduce environmental impact and deliver a sustainable future. Canada Post embraces the growing expectations on large organizations to take action on the environment and will be making further announcements in the coming weeks.
