Containerisation is key to replacing vans with specialised last mile delivery vehicles. It makes the transfer of goods from a highway going motor vehicle to a light last mile delivery vehicle efficient and secure.
For 1000 kg EU pallets or roller cages with milk cartons, you need vans and trucks. For smaller deliveries, we need a smarter solution than oversized vehicles.
The transfer of goods from a motor vehicle or city hub to last mile vehicle takes less than 1 minute. One person can easily do the transfer.
City containers are built from lightweight composite material and are waterproof. Doors are stabilized with a gas spring and locked with a key. The four industrial wheels ensure smooth handling when on the ground. Two handles on the rear allow easy handeling.
There are many optional features available for the city container. The ventisit mats have a woven 3D structure that ensures the safety of your products in case of a liquid spill inside the container.
A remote lock allows you to quickly access your container in all safety. In order for it to work, you’ll need to order the internal power supply for the container. Other optional features include shelves, internal lighting and off course branding foil.
Since the goods are transferred safely into the last mile container at big terminals the risk of damage and theft is reduced.
Technology like tracking and sensors can easily be added to your containers. Just add it to your fleet management solution and increase control.
As the containers are standardised, this enables to automate loading of the container on and off tracks and to be handled autonomously in city hubs.
To simplify the shift from van based to e-cargobike based last mile delivery, Velove now introduces Velovers: trained and certified e-cargobike couriers.
When a new year starts, it is always interesting to reflect on the year that has just passed.
