United Parcel Service Testing Electric Delivery Bicycle

On November 21, 2016 the United Parcel Service (UPS) began testing a new electric delivery bicycle in Portland, OR. The electric bicycle allows UPS to ease traffic congestion while reducing emissions. Based on a 2012 pilot program in Hamburg, Germany the bicycles use a series of centralized parcel containers to reduce delivery distances. For even shorter distances UPS employees use the containers to deliver materials on foot.
