Urb-it now delivers to parcel lockers of Cainiao Network in Paris, providing local customers with greater choice, convenience and flexibility, sustainably
Urb-it, the rapidly growing sustainable logistics platform, is delighted to announce it has partnered with Cainiao Network, a global smart logistics company and the logistics arm of the Alibaba Group, to offer new sustainable delivery options in Paris. Urb-its e-cargo bike fleet couriers now deliver packages to Cainiaos self-service customer locker network across Paris.
Cainiao Network launched its locker service in Paris in September 2021 in order to provide local consumers with more convenience and flexibility. Today the locker network has expanded to hundreds of locations across Paris. Consumers of AliExpress, the global marketplace of the Alibaba Group, are the first to enjoy this new option.

Urb-its e-cargo bike fleet reduce emissions by over 90% and are able to do twice as many delivery stops compared to traditional vans, while reducing congestion and being able to use Paris expanding cycling networks to move across the city.
Stéphane Toutin, France Country Manager, Urb-it commented:
"We are delighted to be growing our partnership with Cainiao in Paris. By expanding our sustainable delivery services together, we aim to provide both a customer-centric service to the citizens of Paris, while also creating a healthier city."
