Project Summary / Description:
Zedify was formed by Rob King of Outspoken Delivery and Sam Keam of Recharge Cargo. For over 12 years our cargo bike delivery businesses had been reducing air pollution and making Cambridge and Brighton nicer places to live. We shared an ambition to scale the impact of zero emission deliveries by creating a national network of hubs. To do this we needed better technology and a unified system for consolidated zero emission deliveries. We joined forces with technology experts Skotkonung and Zedify was born.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
As a socially motivated company, we‚ re committed to being good employers. We are an accredited living wage employer. We employ both male and female couriers and the flexible working hours allow couriers of all genders to manage family commitments alongside work. Our services have a positive impact on congestion in cities as our deliveries are based on both consolidating loads, therefore removing unnecessary van journeys as well as using smaller vehicles that are always full. Finally our vehicles help to improve the social fabric of a city by being low noise and creating more liveable neighbourhoods. Poor air quality is now seen as one of the leading public health concerns and in London alone it is estimated that 9000 deaths a year can be attributed to air pollution. Our vehicles produce no NOx pollutants and as we are re-moding deliveries from typically diesel vans, we are having a big impact on the health of people in cities.

Measurement, Reporting & Validation
Congestion and air pollution are crippling the future of our cities - in London alone, 9,000 premature deaths a year are attributed to poor air quality. Zedify is on a mission to transform urban logistics to make our cities better, healthier, more liveable places. Zedify re-modes deliveries to newly designed light electric freight vehicles (LEFVs), using a unique technology platform and system to make smart, consolidated deliveries out of centrally located depots. This combination reduces emissions, improves congestion and ensures deliveries can have a positive impact on the urban environment. We‚ re ensuring that progressive brands can deliver the environmentally friendly services their customers demand, while maintaining their expectations around cost and speed.
