The explosive growth of e-commerce over the past two years has led to the problem of increasing the carbon footprint of deliveries, and while it is difficult to dissuade people from buying goods, e-commerce needs to become sustainable, and this is what a German startup tried to do, By reducing emissions from delivering goods to customers. How did you do that?

The company is currently using a fleet of freight bikes and electric vehicles, in an attempt to reduce emissions from deliveries, according to the Emirati statement.

Livegroun, which views itself as a delivery platform with a focus on sustainability, has just closed a €3 million funding round on crowdfunding platform SpeedInvest, also with a contribution from venture capital fund Norskin VC in Stockholm.

According to the company’s estimates, its fleet of cargo bikes and electric vehicles prevents the release of 420 grams of carbon dioxide per delivery, and has adaptable delivery processes, based on customer needs, providing same-day or next-day deliveries, in addition to the ability to 24/7 real-time tracking via an app.

The company’s CEO and co-founder, Nicholas Toch, explained the company’s goals as follows: “E-commerce has exploded over the past two years, and more than 75% of Germans regularly buy products online, but this convenience has come at a price. A huge amount of emissions, which people are very concerned about, and just telling people to buy a little is not going to solve the problem, and what we need to do, is make e-commerce sustainable, and a big part of that is address the delivery of goods to customers in their homes.”

The company now operates in 40 cities across Germany, works with major companies, such as Adidas, Dyson and Avery, and plans to grow its team, expanding the platform across other major European cities, such as London, Paris and Madrid.
