- Zalando and Fietskoeriers.nl to test evening delivery in four Dutch cities: Amersfoort, Nijmegen, Arnhem and Zwolle
- Customer orders to be delivered by climate-neutral cargo bikes
- Pilot in line with Zalando’s sustainability strategy to further reduce environmental impact
BERLIN, MARCH 2, 2021 // Zalando, Europe’s leading online platform for fashion and lifestyle, has started a collaboration with the delivery service, Fietskoeriers.nl in the Dutch cities of Amersfoort, Nijmegen, Arnhem and Zwolle. Fietskoeriers.nl are the bicycle couriers of the platform, Cycloon, who deliver Zalando packages between 5 and 10 p.m. By opting for deliveries with cargo bikes, the deliveries do not cause any carbon emissions. In this way, Zalando aims to make deliveries more sustainable and contribute to reducing traffic in and around cities.
The pilot fits seamlessly within Zalando's broader do.MORE sustainability strategy. In fact, Zalando's own business operations, including delivery and returns, have been climate-neutral since 2019 through carbon offsetting. Masood Choudhry, VP Logistics at Zalando, says, “Our vision at Zalando is to be a sustainable fashion platform with a net positive impact for people and the planet. This pilot reflects our vision and contributes to our ambition to further improve our customer experience in the Netherlands. We are happy to start this cooperation with Fietskoeriers.nl in selected cities to serve our customers even more sustainably on the last mile.”
