LEVA-EU member Fernhay developed the eQuad as a compact, agile and flexible solution for last-mile logistics.
Efficiency in urban areas is, increasingly, an essential component of sustainable and comfortable city living. Populations are shifting towards urban centres, meaning that all the operations which keep the flow of goods and people moving need to be as streamlined as possible.
The eQuad electric delivery vehicle is Fernhay’s green-tech solution for efficient inner-city logistics, specifically designed to be a crucial cog in the machinery of supply chain logistics. Last-mile deliveries, where goods are delivered from a transportation hub to end recipients, often face challenges such as congested traffic and delays, and are subject to environmental concerns. The eQuad provides solutions to these challenges:
- Customisable solutions: tailored to customers’ requirements for specific logistical needs and varied urban features.
- Compact and agile: A narrow design allows easy manoeuvring through busy urban streets.
- Zero emissions: electrically powered, eQuad operates without tailpipe emissions, contributing towards cleaner urban air.
Fernhay sees the eQuad as an essential part of an efficient city, representing a shift in thinking – from traditionally accepted, but inefficient, practices, to more sustainable and innovative solutions. As more businesses and city planners adopt tools such as the eQuad, the cumulative effect can lead to significantly more efficient, and less polluted, urban spaces.
