Amazon Launches Additional Micromobility Hubs in London and Manchester

Amazon has expanded its UK e-cargo bike fleet with the launch of three additional micromobility delivery hubs in Manchester and London.

This launch is part of a five-year investment of over 1 billion EUR (866 million GBP) in the electrification and decarbonisation of Amazon’s European transportation network, with approximately 300 million GBP being invested in the UK.

The company’s micromobility vehicles are expected to make more than two million deliveries a year in the UK, with plans to roll out additional hubs in the near future

Amazon opened these latest hubs in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, allowing the company to deliver its packages efficiently during this busy shopping period and the run up to Christmas.

The hubs join Amazon’s existing central London e-cargo bike fleet, which was announced in July this year.

John Boumphrey, UK Country Manager, Amazon said:

“With more than €1 billion committed to electrifying and decarbonising our European transportation network over the next five years, including more than £300 million in the UK alone, we remain laser focused on reaching net carbon zero by 2040. These new hubs will not only bring our customers more electric-powered deliveries, but also support local authorities looking for ways to reduce congestion and find alternative transportation methods. We look forward to expanding our e-cargo bike fleet further in the coming months.”

The new micromobility hubs in London will be based in Wembley and Southwark and will more than triple Amazon’s e-cargo bike fleet across the capital.

With this latest announcement, Amazon’s electric delivery fleet will also operate across the City of Manchester for the first time.
