About DHL

'In 2025 we want to serve all city centers without any emissions'

- Kees de Lange, VP Operations at DHL -

DHL is the market leader in logistic services and offers customers in more than 220 countries sustainable logistic services and solutions.

'The Cubicycle is a four-wheel recumbent bicycle with an interchangeable container of a cubic meter size. Somewhere in the city, a trailer is placed with four containers. Here, the bicycle courier can change the containers during the day. Because the containers and the trailer are connected via KPN's LoRa network, we are able to monitor the Cubicycle and its content in real-time. This is how we create a managed but unmanned 'city hub'. That is the innovative aspect of this concept.'

With the Cubicycle DHL distributes smarter and more sustainable parcels in the city. In addition, this innovation contributes to the liveability of the city in city logistics.
