Lyreco Switzerland delivers Zurich, Bern and Basel customers with electric rickshaws
By equipping three Swiss cities (Zurich, Bern and Basel) with electric rickshaws, Lyreco Switzerland is actively involved in reducing CO2 emissions in the city centres. This transportation hasseveral logistical advantages: in addition to a nearly zero carbon footprint, enables client deliveries in car-free areas and enriches the customer experience with an original touch.
Lyreco UK is trialling the use of cargo bikes for London deliveries.
In a congested modern city like London, being able to deliver packages quickly and with practically zero emissions is exactly the kind of innovation that Lyreco is investing in.
This is why we are partnering with a london based start-up Pedal Me to efficiently deliver some of our goods across the city using cargo bikes.
