Oxford’s Pedal & Post cargo bike delivery service plans Reading expansion


Pedal and Post’s mission is to cut carbon emissions, air pollution and inner-city congestion by delivering parcels in UK cities using e-cargo bikes.

The company now plans to expand to Reading next year!

To help achieve this, they have launched a share offer and to raise up to £500,000 through a crowdfunding campaign on the investment platform Ethex.

CEO of Pedal and Post Chris Benton said:

“Cargo bikes can deliver more parcels per hour than the average van, and produce 92 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions per delivery.”

Pedal & Post delivers 1,000 parcels a day across Oxford and employs 23 people but wants to see the number of parcels delivered rise to 8,000 a day.

The company’s planned expansion includes the aim of increasing revenues to £5.5 million and creating 140 jobs.
