Zoomo partner with EAV to add e-cargo bikes to their portfolio

Yesterday Zoomo, a subscription-based e-bike rental service, for delivery riders and commuters announced it had partnered with EAV, a major provider of sustainable urban transport solutions, to further expand the vehicle offerings available on the Zoomo platform.

The partnership will see EAV e-cargo bikes integrated into the Zoomo platform and offered as part of its leasing, servicing and telematically enabled software offering.

Zoomo’s subscription model is primarily aimed at delivery riders, offering full support such as repairs and servicing as part of the package. Until this new partnership however, their vehicles were comparatively small but the EAV range will enable them to offer vehicles with a considerably greater carrying capacity.

The company believe that the EAV, with its 2m3 of cargo space, has the potential to replace the millions of vans currently congesting cities. EAV’s cargo bikes are one of the largest on the market, with a cargo volume of 2,000 litres and a 150kg payload. They are built to efficiently navigate urban landscapes and enable customers to make more deliveries in a shorter amount of time via their ability to access cycle lanes and safely navigate pedestrianised spaces.

The vehicles have a 40 mile range and are equipped with a spare battery than can be swapped in instantly.

As EAV’s Official Fleet Partner, Zoomo will offer financing for EAV’s range of vehicles alongside their maintenance guarantee and telematically enabled fleet management software.

Michael Johnson, Co-Founder and CRO, Zoomo, said: ‘We are bringing the vehicle leasing model from the automotive space to light electric vehicles. By integrating different vehicle types into our platform, like EAV e-cargo bikes, with leasing, servicing and telematically enabled software solutions, we are able to provide customers in urban logistics with a one-stop solution for all their delivery fleet needs.

‘EAV’s cargo bikes are highly innovative and will enable us to offer more efficient and sustainable fleet solutions to our customers in existing and new segments, like parcel delivery.’

EAV will benefit from Zoomo’s global reach in Australia, North America and Europe. In addition, EAV’s existing and future customers get access to Zoomo’s expansive servicing network, telematically enabled software platform and finance offering.

Adam Barmby, Founder and CEO, EAV, said: ‘Zoomo are perfectly placed to support the take up of EAVs in city centres across the world, and drive the positive difference that we’re pushing for. We are thrilled to have a like minded partner on our mission to revolutionise the last mile, and to create cleaner, safer cities.

‘This partnership maximises our complementary expertise – with Zoomo’s servicing, financing and software making the switch to light electric vehicles a simple step for our shared customers. Meanwhile, we will continue to ensure every single vehicle meets the highest specifications for build and rider-experience, as we innovate on solutions which further reduce the cost and the emissions impact of urban logistics.’

The announcement comes at a time when Transport for London (TfL) recently relaunched its van scrappage scheme, offering grants for businesses to replace petrol vans with electric vehicles, including e-cargo bikes.
