DHL Express has already replaced up to 60% of inner-city vehicle routes in some European countries with cargo bicycles, and we expect that the City Hub and Cubicycle will both help us to accelerate this approach in other markets over the next 3-5 years,” said John Pearson, CEO, DHL Express Europe. “Bicycles offer a number of advantages in express delivery operations: they can bypass traffic congestion and make up to two times as many stops per hour than a delivery vehicle. The total cost of ownership over their lifetime is less than half of a van. And crucially, they generate zero emissions, which reinforces our own ongoing program to minimize our environmental footprint and supports city governments’ efforts to promote sustainable city living.

With close to 40% more people living in Peel by the year 2041, the Region will face increases to traffic related congestion, infrastructure demand, health concerns and environmental issues, unless we plan for a transportation system that fully realizes the potential of walking, cycling, transit, and carpooling to manage demand. The Sustainable Transportation Strategy is being developed as a long-term plan to enable and encourage more people to choose to travel in these modes.
