Urban logistics customers are turning to e-cargo bikes for more sustainable and efficient fleet solutions. These bikes can deliver goods 60% faster than vans in city centres, providing a more efficient alternative for last-mile delivery. Furthermore, e-cargo bikes can replace up to 17% of van kilometres by 2030 in major world cities, resulting in significant CO2 emission savings.
In that context, Zoomo, a global leader in last-mile electric fleet solutions, today announced it has partnered with Urban Arrow, the world’s leading medium-sized cargo bike producer, to enhance its hardware offerings available on the Zoomo platform.
This partnership combines Urban Arrow’s high-quality hardware with Zoomo’s global sales, maintenance, software, and financing capabilities, offering customers in the urban logistics space a more diverse range of sustainable and efficient fleet subscription solutions.
Michael Johnson, Co-Founder and CRO of Zoomo, says: “Partnering with Urban Arrow represents a major win for Zoomo and our customers in the urban logistics space. By adding Urban Arrow’s cutting-edge hardware to our platform, we can offer our customers even more sustainable and efficient fleet solutions, while expanding our servicing capabilities. Urban Arrow’s global reach also presents a significant opportunity for us to grow our business, while helping our customers expand their fleets and reduce their environmental impact.”
Today’s announcement reinforces the shared commitment of Zoomo and Urban Arrow to facilitate the logistics industry’s shift towards greener, more cost-effective, and more efficient transportation.
The partnership will enable Zoomo to meet the needs of the growing urban logistics delivery sector by offering customers a diverse range of vehicle types in its fleet, including Urban Arrow e-cargo bikes (the Cargo L and XL Cargo Line Rohloff). Urban Arrow’s e-cargo bikes will integrate into the Zoomo platform, and will be offered alongside its fleet management software, servicing, and flexible finance as a true vehicle-as-a-service offer.
Jorrit Kreek, Co-Founder of Urban Arrow, says: “At Urban Arrow, we are thrilled to partner with Zoomo. With Zoomo being the world’s leading platform for commercial micromobility fleets, we are proud to see our Urban Arrow electric cargo bikes being ridden by industry-leading companies.”
Likewise, Urban Arrow will be able to access new markets via the partnership and will have the potential to broaden its user base through Zoomo’s subscription packages. In addition, Urban Arrow’s existing and future customers get access to Zoomo’s dedicated servicing network, software platform and finance offering.
