Emissions-free urban freight company Cargohopper expands to Amsterdam (the Netherlands)

By Lewis Macdonald / Updated: 01 Aug 2014
Already operating in two other Dutch cities, Cargohopper will be delivering goods in the Netherlands' largest city from January.
A new way of transporting goods is spreading across the Netherlands. Previously operating in Utrecht and Enschede, Cargohopper will be expanding to Amsterdam in January 2014. It will offer an emissions-free method of transporting goods in urban areas via four electric trucks.

First developed for shipping large quantities of goods, use of the Cargohopper vehicles has expanded to include smaller deliveries and even people moving to new accommodation. It has been used by private businesses as well as by municipalities since it began operating in 2009.

In addition to being emissions-free, Cargohopper vehicles are smaller and quieter than traditional vans or lorries, furthering their suitability for use in urban areas.
