An accessible, ecological delivery service for businesses

Do you have a business that is looking for an easier way to deliver parcels? The Envoi Montréal platform offers low-cost delivery options and encourages the use of low-emission vehicles, including electric cargo bicycles.

Merchants who sign up for this service enjoy several advantages, no matter the size of their company:

  • Several delivery options at reduced prices are available
  • Efficient management of deliveries, with all company needs addressed on a single platform
  • Integration of your on-line store, so you can collect the orders and create shipping labels
  • Faster and more ecological delivery services since bicycles are more agile and less likely to be caught up in traffic congestion

 

Colibri: an experimental project to reduce traffic congestion and pollution

By replacing delivery trucks with electric cargo bikes providing “last-kilometre” package delivery from the former bus station, the Colibri project helps reduce congestion and improve mobility in central Montréal. Electric bicycles are more economical and more efficient. They offer an ecological transportation solution that reduces greenhouse gases.

The initiative, implemented in collaboration with Jalon MTL, is part of the search for sustainable, smart transport solutions. It’s the first accomplishment of the Montréal urban logistics experimentation hub, whose goal is to test solutions for the ecological transportation of merchandise.
