VPD starts with CO2-neutral distribution

VPD, will soon start a 100% environmentally friendly delivery service in Brussels. The service is built around electric vehicles and a very special type of e-cargo bikes.

"From our warehouse in Zellik we will deliver parcels by electric vans to the centre of Brussels. There we have a mini-hub from which we will carry out the last kilometre of the delivery with electrically-assisted cargo bikes. Those bikes look a bit like a tractor-trailer combination. The inside dimensions of the trailer are 240 cm by 80 cm, for a payload of 250 kilos. These combinations have the advantage that they can ride on the cycle paths of our capital," Dirk Van Peteghem told us at the Transport & Logistics salon in Antwerp.
