As part of our green expansion strategy, Absolutely are excited to announce the opening of our new eco-friendly London East Micro-Hub to serve the thriving business community in, and around, London’s famous Canary Wharf.
Residents of Canary Wharf may have recently spotted several of our electric, zero-emission Cargo Bikes zipping around when our team was out and about, getting to know the territory.
Part of Absolutely’s London final mile delivery strategy, this is now our fourth London hub, joining our Central, North, and West London hubs. As you can see from the photo above, we are basing both two and four-wheeled Cargo Bikes at Canary Wharf. To give you an idea of their carrying capacity the smaller version can take up to 8 archive boxes and a maximum load of 150kg, while the larger, four-wheeler can accommodate up to 25 archive boxes (that’s a lot of boxes!)
Repurposing Car Parks
In many cities across the world, a rise in environmental concerns, congestion charging, better public transport, and car-sharing, has led to reduced demand for car parking space. The pandemic has only reduced this further. Which in turn has encouraged many local authorities and car park owners, to work with urban, final mile operators like Absolutely to find well-located spaces where micro-depots or hubs can be created.
With the ever-increasing demand for environmentally friendly final mile delivery and minimising carbon footprints, we will surely see a lot more of this in the future. For our own future expansion, we will always be aiming to avoid increasing our own carbon footprint wherever possible.
For any businesses in Canary Wharf looking for a local low-emissions courier get in touch now we are ready to discuss your needs.
