Philip Lee rolls out e-cargo bike for document delivery

Dublin firm Philip Lee is rolling out an electric cargo bike for document delivery around Dublin city.

The scheme will also facilitate staff in trying a more climate-friendly means of travel.

A pilot scheme, run by Dublin City Council in partnership with bike sharing operator Bleeper, will see trials of  pedal-assist “e-cargo bikes” for six months.

The bikes have a cargo carrying capacity of 60kg, with a rechargeable battery life of 160km.


E-bikes offer energy-efficient transportation with physical and health benefits, and eliminate parking headaches.

Partner Philip Lee said: “We are delighted to take part in this new initiative. We recognise climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing society and change must happen. This is one small change. 

“We are always looking for ways to be more sustainable and here was an opportunity to change our over-reliance on car journeys and fossil fuels.

“Colleagues are looking forward to using this electric e-cargo bike to take documents to court and for errands around Dublin city. It is an innovative step towards reducing our carbon footprint.”
