URB-IT EXPANDS OPERATION TO STRASBOURG WITH LE GROUPE LA POSTE

Paris, 22nd January 2021 - Green logistics provider, Urb-it has partnered with French postal service giant 'Le Groupe La Poste' to provide zero carbon last-mile deliveries to consumers in Strasbourg. The latest collaboration with the historical postal operator heralds a very good start to 2021, and fuels the strong growth of Urb-it's current business in France.

Strasbourg's low emission zones, road access regulations and subsequent future banning of large commercial diesel vans and lorries in the city's Grande Île*, creates a favourable landscape for Urb-it's green eco-fleet. La Group La Poste and Urb-it will capitalise on Strasbourg's delivery road framework and combine to deliver faster, greener, and more conveniently from warehouse to the end-consumer.

Kevin Kviblad, CEO of Urb-it commented, "There is an urban revolution upon us with many European cities embracing new ways of constructing urban spaces, focusing on the people living in them, rather than the vehicles driving through them. Strasbourg is one example of a city transforming the landscape to improve the health of its communities by banning cars from its roads. At Urb-it, we are on a mission to fight for the health of our urban cities and form sustainable synergies with partners that can help us bring this to fruition. We are therefore excited to partner with the esteemed Le Groupe La Poste to revitalise urban logistics in Strasbourg, and with our eco-friendly vehicle fleet bring customer-focussed sustainable delivery solutions to its communities".

Following the recent Strasbourg operation, Urb-it plans to expand and bring its sustainable delivery service and offer green convenience to other major French cities in 2021 such as Bordeaux, Lille, and Marseille.
