Urb-it continues UK expansion by launching in Liverpool

·      Urb-it continues to expand in the UK by launching its sustainable last mile delivery services in Liverpool

·      Liverpool has a 2030 Net Zero Action plan and is Urb-it’s seventh UK city

 

Urb-it, the rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, is delighted to announce it has launched in Liverpool, UK. This follows Urb-it launching its sustainable last mile delivery services in Birmingham in March – it now operates in seven of the UK’s largest cities.

In 2019 Liverpool City Council declared that the Earth is facing a climate change emergency. All political parties in the city collaborated to agree the 2030 Net Zero Liverpool Action Plan, which outlines the specific measures the city will implement to become a net zero city by 2030.   This includes addressing emissions from transport, a significant contributor to carbon emissions, by increasing the use and electrification of public transport and increasing the cycling lane network within the city.

Urb-it partners with e-commerce and logistics partners to provide customer-centric last mile delivery services, 100% by its couriers on its e-cargo bike fleet. This not only directly reduces carbon emissions, congestion, noise and air pollution- but its employed couriers are also more efficient in city centres than traditional delivery vehicles.

Sébastien Potts, UK Country Manager, Urb-it said:

“We are delighted to launch in Liverpool – a thriving city with an ambitious net zero plan to improve the health of the city.  Our sustainable last mile delivery services fully align to this – reducing traffic and emissions on the streets, while also utilising the expanding cycling lane network. We look forward to creating job opportunities and a positive impact in Liverpool.”
