Sainsbury’s trials cargo bikes in London
Sainsbury’s will begin to deliver online shopping orders by electric cargo bike in south London.
The supermarket chain said a fleet of five zero-emission bikes will make up to 100 deliveries per day from its Streatham Common store.
The chain is working with e-cargobikes.com on the initiative and hopes that the bikes could make deliveries in busy cities more efficient.
If successful, the trial could be rolled out to further areas across the UK.
Clodagh Moriarty, Director of Online at Sainsbury’s, said: “We’re delighted to be the first supermarket to trial grocery deliveries by electric cargo bikes.
“We’re always looking for new ways to make sure we can best serve our customers and this trial will help us explore whether there might be a more flexible way to deliver Sainsbury’s groceries to those who live in busy cities.”
