Recent hires by Amazon indicate it's getting (even more) serious about delivering the last mile via e-bike in New York City.

Amazon has hired two mobility experts – including a former Uber manager – to lead its e-bike team in New York City. Is this a sign that Amazon is going to expand its e-bike delivery capabilities?

  • Amazon is already using about 200 pedal-assisted e-bikes for delivery in New York City already
  • Bikes are used for deliveries from Whole Foods
  • Payload
  • Marek’s experience delivering for Amazon in NYC
  • What other major carriers do when delivering in metro NYC
  • UPS cargo bikes
  • Park-and-loop delivery
  • Whole Foods stores, dark stores, and fulfilment centres located close to the customer
  • Is manoeuvrability that big an advantage for cargo bikes?
