UNO, awarded with the “clean environment 2012” prize for enhancing the use of the electric trike developed by KeelWit

During a formal ceremony held in the Environment Division of the Regional Government of Madrid, UNO has received the “Clean Environment 2012” award for Organizations. UNO is the Spanish Organization of employers and companies of the Logistics & Transportation business. This prize is part of a global approach from the regional government to enhance local industries’ engagement with clean initiatives and technologies. This year’s prize acknowledges the project of the development of an electric tricycle for Last Mile Delivery in urban environments. This project was strongly supported by leading companies in urban logistics, such as SEUR, MRW, TNT or DHL Supply Chain who have offered their know-how in daily business operation in this area. Vienenbici worked as the investor in the project, KeelWit Technology as the engineering company taking full responsibility of the design, sizing and production scheme, and e+e as an energy efficiency expert. Project coordination has been granted by CITET (Technological Centre for Innovation applied to Logistics and Transportation). This project ended with the only fully homologated electric tricycle in Spain with substantial improvements in terms of handling, comfort, volume, torque and range for package delivery in pedestrian areas and crowded streets. UNO can therefore display the “sello-e” distinction as a proof of its efforts in making logistic industry more efficient and environmentally aware and as a sign of their search for excellence in its management.

KeelWit presents a new electric trike for sustainable last-mile distribution

KeelWit presents in SIL (Logistic International Fair) held in Barcelona, the electric tricycle developed for the logistic company VIENENBICI to be used in sustainable last-mile delivery KeelWit Technology has developed for Vienenbici a range of electrically assisted tricycles to be used for Last Mile Delivery in the downtown of big cities. The development of this first model for parcel delivery companies has been done through a taskforce leaded by KeelWit and integrated by the COO of several of the main companies in this business. With the support of both UNO (Logistics and Transport Companies’ Confederation), e+e Proyectos y Eficiencia Energética andCITET (Technological Centre for Innovation applied to Logistics and Transport), the team held several meetings focused in establishing the definition of what an “ideal tricycle” should be. KeelWit later developed the first working prototype in only 3 months according to the “case study results”. Powered through LiFePO4 batteries, the tricycle is equipped with substantial improvements both in technology and user-friendliness, compared with current state-of-the-art vehicles in this market. All of the improvements are bespoke features created by KeelWit, turned into standard following the requests of the 6 companies involved in the project.
