Environmental impact of package delivering services in city areas

The client is delivering packages to customers in city area’s by bike for 20 years now, in 60 cities all over the Netherlands. Competitors used to deliver packages by using diesel busses but are changing to small electrical busses to reduce air pollution and other environmental impacts.

The client is curious about the environmental impact of delivering packages in city areas by bike when compared to small electrical busses. The analysis should not only include the use of energy and the related CO2-emissions but should also focus on the use of materials, use of space, noise, safety etc. The project should also look at how to communicate the results to the customers/ the market/ society.
