  • UPS E-Bike Service Begins In*Pittsburgh

    UPS has launched an eBike, delivery service in Pittsburgh, Pa. The concept was first demonstrated in 2012 in Hamburg, Germany, with the intent of operating eBikes on a regular, year-round route, weather permitting.

    UPS places 4 containers at central city locations for package storage. From these points, deliveries are made on foot or with eBike cargo tricycles, easing traffic congestion & emissions. Due to the success of the Hamburg pilot, the program was extended to Pittsburgh with a route planned to go around the downtown area.

    The electrically-assisted tricycles improve air quality and help reduce carbon emissions in addition to traffic & noise. Their deployment is part of UPS’s Rolling Laboratory, which tests alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles.

    UPS currently operates inner-city delivery projects with delivery on foot and by bike in Frankfurt, Offenbach, Hamburg, Munich, Oldenburg and Herne, Germany, as well as in Leuven and Mechelen, Belgium; Rome and Verona, Italy; Toulouse, France; and Dublin, Ireland.
