Packages delivered bike-train-bike instead of truck-plane-truck


Transportation is a significant contributor to negative external environmental and societal impacts such as congestion, noise and emissions. But transport also generates economic benefits, especially when sustainable courier services are available.

A 5kg package transported across Europe using a typical express carrier such as FedEx, UPS or DHL could generate up to 12kg of CO2 emissions. FedEx, UPS, DHL and other operators are carrying around 4.5 million express packages around Europe this way every day!

A 5kg package generating 12kg of emissions is difficult to accept, and impossible to sustain over the long-term.

We connect bike couriers in cities around Europe with high-speed passenger trains that have package carrying capacity, thereby creating a sustainable transportation network and reducing the CO2 impact by up to 99 per cent.
