Amazon is expanding its sustainable delivery efforts by introducing electric cargo bikes for deliveries in Glasgow.
This new fleet is expected to significantly reduce traditional van usage, alleviate traffic congestion, and contribute to improved air quality within Glasgow.
The new Glasgow delivery hub, located in Baillieston, represents part of Amazon’s £300 million investment in electrifying and decarbonising its UK transportation network.
The company plans to conduct approximately 2.5 million sustainable deliveries annually in the UK, utilising methods such as electric cargo bikes and on-foot deliveries.
Scottish Minister for Transport Fiona Hyslop said: “I welcome moves by major businesses to develop micromobility delivery hubs. It’s great news for our cities – for example by choosing e-cargo bikes over vans, businesses can not only reduce carbon emissions but also help remove congestion and improve air quality.”
