The e-commerce delivery industry is struggling with transportation and decarbonizing the environment. Two reputable EV companies are collaborating to address this issue. it is a Swedish producer of light, clean and quiet electric bikes founded by Stefan Ytterbon in 2016. Its mission is to inspire a zero-emission society.
The model range includes Kalk (off-roader), Osa (modular utility), and Makka (urban commuter). Cake received the Time Magazine 100 most important inventions award in 2021. Volta Trucks is a service provider and manufacturer of electric trucks with zero emissions, founded in 2019. Its head office is in Stockham, Sweden.
The company is also partnering with global leaders in the supply chain to develop Volta Zero. It has a sales team in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, and France. The aim is to improve service to end customers by decarbonizing and decongesting last-mile deliveries. Volta Trucks will act as a mini-warehouse or a mobile micro hub for cake bikes.
At the start of the day, cake bikes will be loaded into the hub (Volta Trucks) from the distribution center and deployed into city centers to deliver the last mile of goods to customers. Volta Trucks is free to replace batteries for cake bikes if necessary. This process will fast-track deliveries, bye-pass traffic, and parking struggles in the most sustainable way.
Essa Al-Saleh, CEO of Volta Trucks, said their partnership with Cake would benefit their end customers because most use trucks to deliver from out-of-town warehouses to inner-city stores.
Stefan Ytterborn, CEO of cake, said that world-leading e-commerce brands need future-proof concepts because several world’s largest cities will soon ban the majority of today’s last-mile delivery chain.
Brands should develop efficient delivery solutions for customers that will offer low emissions and less congestion, said Stefan Ytterborn.
CEO of Volta Trucks announced that they had designed the full-electric Volta Zero to be the safest, cleanest, and most efficient urban delivery vehicle.
The collaboration will pave opportunities for brands in the e-commerce delivery industry and tackle transportation challenges.
