walking and cycling for parcels not just people
our ECO HUB II IS A SYSTEM THAT HAS electric ASSISTED EQUIPMENT AT ITS CORE
City walking and cycling policy is changing the infrastructure ,with roads full of vehicles giving way to bicycles and pedestrians. Reasons for these changes include worries about air quality, climate change, road and kerbside congestionm a particular challenge for a van delivery solution as we tend towards higher population densities.
At Fernhay we have worked with our customers to understand what it might mean to move away from roads towards cycle ways and paths with the results in what you see here.
Utility with style, enhances your brand yet delivers at the drop rates per hour you need.
With its sleek modern styling suitable for the 21st century, Breathe gets us into the core of the urban fabric. Its 4 wheel configuration (rather than a trike which is 3 wheel) allows for a narrower vehicle making it a better fit for congested city cycle lanes and roads, particularly in mega cities like London and Paris. It is designed to go where traditional cycle logistics cannot. Zero to 10 mph fast, and a drop density that means in a typical 3 minute cycle the operator would only be on the bicycle for 30 - 40 seconds. When you think along these lines, you will start to see some of the features that make our customers consider Breathe is a very special product. Many styling options are available, including open and close cab versions.

Balancing volume against cycle and walk friendly dimensions.
Fresh is the payload box at the heart of the solution. It is designed to work across all our equipment and can be moved by cycle, walker or on a trailer. The base dimensions are narrow and long to allow for very awkward loads to be carried such as a small carpet roll. Fresh comes in two different formats , either pre-loadable at depot or fixed depending on your operating model. Fresh also comes in a range of box size options, carrying volume of between 1.3 to 2.3 cubic metres.
scalable and business focused
fit for purpose design creates the business case that works at scale
Manoeuvrable and friendly in a shared space.
To us, sustainable logistics means moving our Fresh boxes around our cities in the most appropriate and logical way. Currently under development, Air our e:walker product, allows an operator to move from road through cycle way and onto the pavement. Air uses the same mechanisation as all other parts of our solution. It carries the same Fresh boxes as Breathe and so all we now need to do is talk to you about what is the right thing for you and the cities that you operate in.
products that deliver fast
designed for accessibility on road, cycle ways or paths and ergonomics to match, mean drop rates are high
We started by thinking about how a battery pack on wheels could be an amazing way of allowing an environmentally conscious tradesman working locally to take power tools to an awkward site and work all day on electric. It was the vision that started our journey, but then life presented itself to us and we changed direction. This was where the removal of vans from cities started.
Fernhay is an independent equipment manufacturing and design company, committed to creating zero-emission products for freight deliveries in cities.
Our vision is of thriving cities, where parcels and packets are delivered nimbly throughout the streets in ways that reduce air pollution and kerb side congestion. Cities are clean, the air is fresh and people enjoy the spaces around them.
