DHL running “cubicycle” pilot in UAE
DHL has announced that it is running a pilot using its “cubicycle” cargo bike to make inner city deliveries in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The cubicycle is a customized four-wheel bike that can carry containers with a load of 125 kilograms.
Geoff Walsh, Country Manager, DHL in the UAE, said: “DHL Express has already replaced up to 60% of inner-city vehicles with cubicycles in some European countries and we are proud to launch and carry forward the same initiative and program in the UAE.
“We are confident that this new and advanced method of delivery will not only help reduce emissions and improve carbon efficiency, but also increase productivity and efficiency as cubicycles provide a faster way of delivery, especially within the more congested inner roads in the city.”
