What a great day!
Three years ago I imagined a future with bikes handling a significant market share of urban deliveries. Bikes are zero emissions, reduce congestion and are simply a better solution for a range of urban logistics needs.
My company, Freewheel Cargo (www.freewheelcargo.com), is a trend leader in this space. We handle deliveries for over a dozen companies in Seattle and we continue to expand.
My core 'why' for starting Freewheel was to pioneer a carbon free sector in an otherwise incredibly carbon intensive industry.
I knew it was only a matter of time before others joined, including the big players in freight. That's why I'm so excited to see UPS piloting a project with bikes (just like ours) for urban freight. (Trivia buffs may know that UPS started in Seattle with bike couriers.)
A huge thanks to our team and everyone that has supported my vision over the last three years. We're only getting started.
