walking and cycling for parcels not just people
our PARCEL DELIVERY SYSTEM HAS electric ASSISTED EQUIPMENT AT ITS CORE
City walking and cycling policy is changing the infrastructure, with vehicles giving way to increased road space for cycling and walking. Practical necessity for social distancing in a Covid-19 world and worries about air quality, climate change, road and kerbside congestion, create particular challenges for a delivery solution focussed only on vans.
At Fernhay we have worked with our customers to understand what it might mean to move away from a focus on roads for vans towards a focus on roads for cycling and paths for walking with the results in what you see here.
THE FERNHAY EQUAD
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, the Fernhay eQuad 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 the eQuad is a very special product. Many styling options are available, including open and closed cab versions.

the cube container
Balancing volume against cycle and walk friendly dimensions.
The Cube is the payload box at the heart of the solution. It is designed to work across all our equipment and can be moved by our electric assist eQuads and our powered walk aid, the eWalker. The base dimensions are narrow and long to allow for very awkward loads to be carried such as a small carpet roll. The Cube comes in two different formats , either pre-loadable at depot or fixed depending on your operating model. The Cube also comes in a range of box size options, carrying volume of between 1.3 to 2.3 cubic metres.

fit for purpose design creates the business case that works at scale
the fernhay ewalker
Manoeuvrable and friendly in a shared space.
To us, sustainable logistics means moving our Cube boxes around our cities in the most appropriate and logical way. The Fernhay eWalker allows an operator to move from road through cycle way and onto the pavement. The eWalker uses the same mechanisation as all other parts of our parcel delivery solution. It carries the same Cube containers as the Fernhay eQuad. Talk to us to understand what is the right solution for your business and the cities where you operate.
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.
