Cargo delivery solution for e-bikes and e-scooters

Cargo delivery solution for e-bikes and e-scooters

Delivery business today is booming more than ever before. People are storming online shops, while companies like Amazon, Shopify, eBay, BestBuy, Walmart are living in the golden age. However, no one could deny that this intensity requires more resources and new methods to stay at the TOP and make deliveries as fast as possible. Reducing expenditure in cargo or parcel transportation can be crucial in establishing leading positions, and Teltonika has prepared a solution for e-Bikes and e-scooters cargo deliveries

CHALLENGE

Over the last years, the world has been accelerating the implementation of environmentally sound means of motorized transport that can reduce congestion and improve mobility. Public establishments and businesses in major cities have also realized the potential of electric vehicles that can help solve not only environmental issues but also contribute to last-mile problems.

Last-mile logistics is particularly important to retail e-commerce businesses that seek fast and economical delivery for their clients. Delivery time is wasted on simple aspects that cannot be overlooked. Transport Policy Journal research has indicated that drivers spent 28% of their delivery time cruising, looking for a parking space. What about delivering goods with e-bikes or e-scooters that can eliminate congestion and save time?

There were success cases all over the world. For example, after good financial results and positive reactions in a pilot attempt, Croatian Post announced the launch of a 180 electric bikes fleet that replaced petrol-powered mopeds. It was estimated that institution would save €930 per moped. Considering there were 180 new e-bikes, the estimated savings attributed to €168000 a year, while the vehicles would reduce the emission of over 100 tonnes of CO2 a year. 

The efficiency of e-bikes was also confirmed in Canada where several companies tested e-bikes instead of trucks for last-mile delivery. The results reported that an e-bike is 30 to 40 per cent more efficient in terms of deliveries per hour.

Last but not least, a 2021 research conducted by Europe Mobility Atlas, confirms the remarkable benefit of owning a cargo bike instead of a car. Based on calculation for 15,000 km driven (per year), cargo bike results in five-time smaller costs that include repair costs, fixed costs, fuel/electricity and loss value.

Thus, it would be fair to say that the stage is set for the implementation of smart cargo delivery solutions – everything you need is a quality tracking system and worktime management. These advantages are offered by our Teltonika‘s TFT100 tracker that can be implemented within variety of e-scooters or e-bikes.

SOLUTION

Let‘s say you own a cargo (parcel) delivery company, and you want to track your driver‘s performance. The tracking begins after a driver would use a customized immobilizer to ignite the engine. Conveniently mounted on an your e-bike or e-scooter, our TFT100 tracker collects information about distance travelled, speeding, the exact location of a driver and time spend on a vehicle. All the data is displayed on real-time online software.

After a day is completed, one would be able to see the report of the routes employee has used and travelled distance in the online tracking software. Such report also includes valuable information about e-bike or e-scooter‘s performance – battery levels, charging needs or maintenance issues.

With detailed information on the mentioned features, one would be able to detect loopholes in the cargo deliveries system: non-productive employees, missed deliveries and vehicle malfunctions.
