Evri is fast-tracking the rollout out of electric cargo bikes, aiming to triple its numbers of e-cargo bikes to 99, in a bid to reduce emissions when delivering parcels.

The plans, which are expected to give Evri the UK’s biggest fleet of e-cargo bikes for parcel delivery, are part of a wider £19mn investment in sustainability. This will also see it grow its electric vehicles (EVs) fleet from 168 to 270 within the next year.

Evri has established a dedicated “final-mile electrification taskforce” which will spearhead innovative solutions, explore partnerships, and implement strategies to transform last-mile deliveries into a zero-emission operation.

Evri already has electric cargo bikes operating in Bristol, Oxford, London and Cambridge and the company currently delivers 1.5 million parcels a year, by bike or EV. The business aims to triple that number to around four million over the next year. These deliveries are part of the more than 720 million parcels that Evri delivers each year – of which more than 99% are on time. 

Martijn De Lange, CEO at Evri, said: “Pedal power will rev up our efforts to reimagine parcel deliveries in the UK as we aim to become the biggest operator of e-cargo bikes in the sector. We achieved a 9% decrease in carbon emissions since last year. The £19mn investment announced today will lay the groundwork for Evri to dial up on its ambition to become the UK’s most sustainable parcel carrier.”

Furthermore, the parcel delivery company also plans to replace diesel vehicles used on its ParcelShop, and SME collection routes. Evri will add 148 EVs to its fleet, before its busy Christmas period this year, with a further 122 joining the fleet in spring 2025. This commitment will see electric vans account for over half of its ParcelShop drop-offs and collections. To support these vehicles Evri will continue expansion of its own EV charging infrastructure investing over £1mn in this across its depot network and hubs. 

This will be complemented by the significant expansion of its ‘out of home’ (OOH) estate. Evri’s OOH network is currently believed to be the largest in the UK with more than 15,000 locations which include Tesco Express stores and Post Office branches.
