Why Pedal Vans? An Overview of the Fernhay Fleet

Let’s delve into why Pedal Vans are more than just a mode of transport—they’re a symbol of our commitment to a greener, more efficient future. Embracing this innovative solution, we are setting new standards in eco-friendly transportation.


What is a Pedal Van?

A Pedal Van, in essence, is a human-powered vehicle designed for urban freight delivery. It combines the agility of a bicycle with the capacity of a small van, making it perfect for navigating the bustling city streets while carrying a substantial load. At Fernhay, we’ve meticulously engineered our Pedal Vans to be robust, reliable, and easy to manoeuvre, ensuring they meet the diverse needs of urban logistics. This unique blend of features positions the Pedal Van as a versatile and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional delivery methods.


Why Choose Pedal Vans for Urban Logistics?


Environmental Benefits

In an era where environmental consciousness is paramount, they stand out as a beacon of sustainability. They produce zero emissions, helping to reduce air pollution in city centres. By integrating them into our fleet, we’re not just delivering goods; we’re also delivering a cleaner, healthier urban environment. This initiative directly contributes to the global effort in combating climate change.


Efficiency in Urban Settings

Traffic congestion is a persistent challenge in cities. They tackle this head-on by being adept at weaving through traffic, using bike lanes, and accessing areas that are off-limits to traditional vehicles. This agility translates to faster delivery times and increased efficiency, a crucial factor in the fast-paced world of logistics. It also means less stress for our drivers, who can avoid the common delays faced in vehicular traffic.



Operating a Pedal Van is remarkably cost-effective. The absence of fuel costs, low maintenance expenses, and exemption from congestion charges make them a financially savvy choice for businesses. In the long run, Pedal Vans can significantly reduce operational costs, a benefit we at Fernhay are keen to pass on to our customers. Additionally, the reduced need for expensive parking spaces in city centres further adds to the cost savings.


A Closer Look


Design and Features

Our Pedal Vans are not just functional; they’re also designed with the operator’s comfort and safety in mind. Features like adjustable seating, intuitive controls, and efficient braking systems ensure a pleasant and safe ride. The cargo compartment is secure and spacious, optimised for a variety of goods, from parcels to perishables. The ergonomic design also helps in reducing operator fatigue, making it easier to cover longer distances.


Technological Integration

Our Pedal Vans are equipped with GPS tracking and performance monitoring systems. This tech integration enables us to optimise routes, monitor deliveries in real-time, and ensure the utmost efficiency in our operations. The integration of these technologies also helps in maintaining high standards of service and reliability.


Customisation Options

We understand that every business has unique needs. That’s why our Pedal Vans come with a range of customisation options. Whether it’s branding the vehicle with your company colours or adjusting the storage configuration to suit your specific requirements, we’ve got you covered. Our team works closely with clients to ensure that each van is tailored to meet their specific business needs.


Pedal Vans in Action: Real-World Applications


Last-Mile Delivery

Pedal Vans excel in last-mile delivery – the final leg of the delivery process. They are perfect for navigating through tight streets and delivering directly to customers’ doorsteps. This not only enhances customer satisfaction but also contributes to a more sustainable delivery process. By closing the gap in last-mile delivery, we’re redefining the efficiency and eco-friendliness of urban logistics.


Event Support and Catering

Our Pedal Vans have also found a niche in event support and catering. They are ideal for transporting equipment, food, and beverages in urban events where accessibility can be challenging for larger vehicles. Their versatility also makes them a popular choice for event organisers looking for a sustainable and innovative transportation solution.


Retail and Street Vending

Retailers and street vendors have adopted our Pedal Vans as a mobile business unit. Their versatility makes them an excellent choice for pop-up shops, mobile cafes, and other retail ventures that require mobility and flexibility. This has opened up new avenues for businesses to reach customers in a more personal and engaging manner.
