UPS Introduces Electric Trike Delivery: United Pedaling Service

That is the shortest UPS truck that I have ever seen. That’s because it isn’t a truck at all. It’s more of a package delivery trike. This is one of UPS’ ways of addressing concerns about environmental sustainability, while easing traffic in urban areas. The company has developed a new program using “Cargo Cruisers” to deliver packages.

This program was first tested in Hamburg, Germany and is now making its U.S. debut in Portland, Oregon. Obviously it doesn’t hold as many packages as your typical UPS truck, but that’s okay. These trikes are meant to assist, not replace the truck fleet.

Still, if they work out, you never know, they could one day replace UPS trucks. Think how much cleaner our air would be if that happened.
