Urb-it rolls out sustainable last mile delivery services for Evri (previously Hermes) in Bristol
URB-IT ROLLS OUT SUSTAINABLE LAST MILE DELIVERY SERVICES FOR EVRI (PREVIOUSLY HERMES) IN BRISTOL
Following commencing the partnership in London, Manchester, and Liverpool, Urb-it and Evri have launched operations in Bristol. With a population of more than 500 000 inhabitants (1.0 million metropolitan areas) and a high focus on sustainability and reducing emissions, Bristol provides an excellent opportunity to grow the partnership. In Bristol alone, Evri estimates that their e-cargo bikes partners will deliver approximately 345 000 parcels per year.
Urb-it's customer-centric last mile sustainable delivery services, conducted exclusively by its couriers on its e-cargo bike fleet across Europe, significantly reduce last mile C02 emissions, urban congestion, and air pollution. Urb-it is B Corp certified, committed to maintaining the highest standard of environmental performance, social governance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
Hannes Skugghall, Chief Mission Officer and Interim Country Manager UK at Urb-it, comments:
"I am excited about the continuous growth in our partnership with Evri, providing further foundation for us to execute our strategy while simultaneously growing the business. The expansion is also a great testament that Urb-it delivers on our service and key metrics. Expanding our footprint together with Evri also allows us to increase our positive impact on the livability of these cities, not just by reducing carbon emissions, but also decrease air- and noise pollution as well as improving road safety".
