Miami pilots e-cargo bikes to reduce congestion, pollution

SMART CITIES DIVE | The pilot aims to benefit congestion and the environment, as each bike takes "one conventional delivery van off the road, reducing road traffic, noise and pollution while still providing fast efficient deliveries for customers," according to the DHL announcement. 

A DHL truck will carry up to nine cargo containers for the bikes, which will be sent to the Reef Hub to be hooked up to the bikes for last-mile delivery in the morning. Those same containers can be reloaded in the afternoon for outbound shipments. DHL couriers will also undergo training to operate the bikes to ensure compliance with federal, state and local traffic laws.
