A new local and last mile sustainable eco delivery service is now available in Milngavie with the help of Andrew Taylor. His e-cargo bike is helping to deliver businesses gifts and essentials to the local community around Milngavie.
Andrew initially contacted the Milngavie BID for introductions to local business owners about his e-cargo local delivery service. The BID team immediately recognised the benefits of this service and circulated Andrew’s contact details to all 150 businesses to encourage them to use his services.
Andrew told us “the cargo bike is specially built to carry over 100kgs in goods or cargo and is a non polluting very low impact way to get products to customers.
As a sustainable delivery solution we would love to partner with like minded people and businesses in trying to make a difference. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly delivery solution or want to make a green and sustainable change please consider Velo-City Deliveries.“
Local Milngavie town centre businesses that can now deliver by bike include Colpi Ice Cream, Elba Artisan Gallery, Graeme’s Pharmacy and The Scottish Gantry with more joining in after the lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
Local businesses now use this eco friendly delivery service and are available to use through their website or by calling them direct.
Local businesses are actively promoting this new eco-friendly service. See the twitter announcement from Elba Artisan Gallery. The more people who use Andrew’s service, the better it will be for everyone.
Like the now world-famous “The Daily Mile” in schools to help tackle childhood obesity, could this local delivery concept, have a real impact on helping to reduce carbon emissions?
Many of the businesses who are supporting this new service have adapted their business through the pandemic to make it easy to #ThinkLocalFirst and #ShopLocalOnline as part of the #ScotlandLovesLocal campaign.
Andrew’s service is the last part of the journey that will make it convenient for people to shop in the eco-friendly way.
In Milngavie, we hope this service can succeed and would encourage anyone buying locally to consider having their items delivered by Velo City Deliveries.
