How often do you notice the vehicle that delivers your meals or packages? Most of us don’t really think about it. We just expect our deliveries to be fast.
But we should think about it.
While innovations like one-click checkout and same/next-day shipping have brought unprecedented convenience to shopping experiences—especially during the pandemic—the ways in which our goods and services are delivered are still based on street-blocking, air-polluting combustion engine vehicles.
The truth is that urban last-mile delivery has never been so ripe for disruption.
More and more, retailers, restaurants, and service providers are turning away from delivery trucks and vans to lightweight electric vehicles like e-bikes and e-scooters.
Join Nathan Wang, head of micromobility at Particle, and Oliver Bruce, co-host of The Micromobility Podcast, tomorrow, Wednesday, October 13, at 9:00AM PT as they discuss the future of LEVs as a means of last-mile delivery in urban environments.
