January ’23

  • Things started off strong with the production of our very own electric cargo bikes – the GTrikes [watch out for more on these soon]. It was at this time that we had our first batch of 10 out into the world; exciting times indeed

February ’23

  • We exhibited at The Delivery Conference for the first time ever and met some amazing people – some of whom are now clients, and some are friends. Our bold stand design stood out from the rest and our interactive ‘Spin the bike wheel’ game drew some attention. Catch us there in Feb ’24
  • We partnered with CLUBZERØ to collect their reusable packaging across London
  • We totted up how many batteries we’d collected for Valpak via cargo bike and realised we’d saved more than 121kg of carbon by collecting 1500kg of batteries by bike
  • We began interviewing for new and exciting roles: Head of Product, Ops Manager in Bristol and another Full Stack Software Engineer to complement our rapid growth

March ’23 [a busy month!]

  • We released our Impact Report in line with BCorp month

  • We exhibited at The Cargo Bike Summit and celebrated the announcement of TfL’s Cargo Bike Action plan, which felt like a really positive step towards net-zero

April ’23 [a VERY busy month!]

  • We created a national network pretty much overnight for our biggest client yet, ZARA. We ramped up operations across the country to get things on the move and worked closely as a UK-wide network to coordinate this, ready to be utilised for our other clients, too
  • We celebrated the launch of Fettle x KwikFit, a female-led, faff-free bike repair service that celebrates the power of community, sustainability and innovation
  • We began working with Feedr, a meal delivery service shaking up London’s office lunches, to help them reduce carbon on their pick-ups and drop-offs
  • We began working with Square Mile Farms, an innovative vertical farming company that transforms work spaces beyond aesthetics. Their mission revolves around education, decarbonisation and reconnection with the natural world. Definitely some of the cooler parcels we’ve delivered!

May ’23 [still busy]

  • We were shortlisted for the UK Green Business Awardsas the Supply Chain and Logistics Project of the Year
  • We made it into the Financial Times, discussing the impact of cargo bike deliveries on cities!

  • We began hiring for a new, dedicated Customer Success team and a Fleet Manager
  • Our sales rep Pip Marshall delivered an epic one minute speech at Bread&Jam’s event in London

June ’23

  • We showcased our new client, Brunswick Fine Wines – a luxury wine merchant going against the grain (or should that be against the grape?), and doing things with a local, sustainable, community-led focus
  • We recognised Clean Air Day – clean air for all is a key driving force behind Zedify’s mission
  • Shiptheory x Zedify launched! This integration = quicker, better shipping for SMEs and beyond, enabling a connection to us with the click of a button
  • We attended the UK Green Business Awards – and won in our category!

July ’23

  • We launched a brand new hub in Manchester! Our first in the north of England! Check out the press release here
  • We attended the Sustainability Show in Manchester and had a blast meeting local decision-makers, business owners and members of the public. We got to listen to a great talk by Andy Burnham too; what more could you want?

August ’23

  • Our Edinburgh depot manager Mark Anderson completed an epic race across Europe– the Transcontinental Race! 4000km of hilly, uneven terrain, followed by a well-deserved few days at the finish line location in Greece. Big props to Mark
  • We were named as finalists in the Barclays Sustainability Awards!
  • We headed to London and filmed some fun contentwith our client Grubby – an amazing vegan meal-kit company – chatting all things urban deliveries, healthy food and *changing the world for the better*
