Amazon is launching a fleet of e-cargo bikes and a team of on-foot delivery staff to replace thousands of van deliveries on London’s roads.The online retailer is opening its first “micromobility” hub in Hackney, east London, which along with an existing fleet of electric vehicles will contribute to 5m deliveries a year across about a 10th of the capital’s ultra low emission zone postcode districts.

The bikes will be operated by a variety of partner businesses, not directly by Amazon, it is understood.Amazon plans more such delivery hubs around the UK this year as part of its efforts to cut its carbon emissions.
