Electric Bike Courier joins EV Association

The EV Association Scotland is pleased to welcome Eagle Couriers and their new electric bike as members hope to see you wizzing around the streets of Edinburgh soon we need more two-wheeled members!

After being out of work for just under a year, a twenty year old man has landed an ‘electric’ role with one of Scotland’s largest independent courier firms.

Paul Rice, from Edinburgh, was successful in applying through the government’s 18-24 Youth Wage Incentive scheme for a role of electric bike courier after Eagle Couriers added the vehicle to its fleet.

The firm which is based in Bathgate, bought the bike from The Edinburgh Cycle Company, one of the largest distributors of electric bikes in the UK in order to not only employ a young person out of work but to also help towards its environmental contribution.

The Giant Twist Power Bike will be used by Paul on the streets of Edinburgh in his new role, helping him to travel efficiently around Edinburgh amidst the current travel chaos in the capital.

Paul said: “I’m delighted to have been offered the role of Electric Cycle Courier with the firm. After being out of work, it feels great to finally have a secure role with reputable company and I’m delighted that I will be Eagle’s first electric courier.”

Eagle Couriers has been working hard on reinforcing its green credentials since it was founded in 1985, helping to support its cycle couriers as well as more recently encouraging its members of staff on the ground to cycle to work as a part of the Cycle to Work scheme.

The firm also monitors its carbon footprint by promoting sensible and efficient driving practices to all of its courier team.

Jerry Stewart, Director at Eagle Couriers, said: “We are delighted to have taken on our first employee through the government’s employment scheme for 18-24 year olds.

“It is great to be able to give someone who has struggled to find work a chance to get a job but also to get involved in our new electric bike initiative.

“The main reasons that we decided to add the bike to our fleet is that it is another way in which we are able to save fuel emissions whilst getting around the capital. It is also a great way to get around the city amidst the travel chaos that it’s experiencing at the moment.

“Since the tram works began the city centre has become more and more congested and businesses are increasingly difficult to access, having an electric bike definitely alleviates some of these issues and will definitely make it easier on our new recruit.”

Eagle Couriers had previously not been able to employ a courier from the employment programme due to the fact that individuals have to be 25 years old to drive a van and are delighted that they are now able to get involved in the scheme and help look at future career options for younger couriers.

Electric bikes or e-bikes as they are also known differ from traditional bicycles and motor cycles as an electric motor which uses rechargeable batteries is used to power them. They can reach speeds of up to 15.5mph are a fast becoming a new and environmentally friendly way to get around the UK’s road.

Eagle Couriers is Scotland’s leading courier firm with over 27 years’ experience. More information about the company can be found at www.eaglecouriers.co.uk
