DHL Express Taiwan Corp (洋基通運) yesterday announced that it would start a trial of cargo bicycle
deliveries in an industrial park, making Taiwan the first nation in the Asia-Pacific region to adopt the eco-friendly delivery method.
The firm, a local subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group, one of the world’s leading mail and logistics services groups, said that starting next month, it would use a “cubicycle” for deliveries at Tai Yuen Hi-Tech Industrial Park (台元科技園區) in Hsinchu County’s Jhubei City (竹北).
As the company has set up a logistics center inside the park, it would be hassle-free for workers to ride the special vehicle to deliver goods or mail to clients, DHL Express Taiwan said.
The company is to use one cubicycle during the trial, which is expected to last from three to six months, to test delivery efficiency and staff reactions, DHL Express Taiwan managing director Yung C. Ooi (黃湧君) told a news conference in Taipei. [FULL STORY]
