Positive Future #16 (Feature photo –– courtesy of UPS)
United Parcel Service just announced that it was implementing a new form of transportation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It’s an electric bike (actually covered e-trike) for local delivery. The effort is in part due to UPS’s participation in a program called Vision Zero Fort Lauderdale.
The UPS use of electric bike technology goes back 5 years when original testing was done in Germany. The entrance into Florida was preceded earlier by the entrance of the e-trike into Portland, Oregon.
