Amazon opens first micromobility hub in Northern Ireland

Share this article

Amazon has today launched its first micromobility hub in Northern Ireland with a new fleet of electric cargo bikes.

Housed at the Belfast hub in the Titanic Quarter, the bikes will deliver thousands of packages per week to Amazon customers in the city.

Belfast joins more than 40 cities in the UK and Europe which already use Amazon micromobility hubs to remove vans from city roads, improve air quality and alleviate congestion. 

“It has been really exciting to help launch the first electric cargo bike fleet out of an Amazon delivery station in Northern Ireland,” Jim Press, Senior Delivery Station Manager at Amazon in Belfast, told Zag Daily.

“We know customers are looking for companies to make deliveries quickly and more sustainably which is why we’re focused on our £300m commitment to decarbonise our fleet across the UK, in the years to 2027.”

The new electric cargo bike fleet is part of Amazon’s goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040. This would be 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement adopted by 194 countries, which outlines targets to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions.

Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge putting this commitment into writing and has nearly 500 signatories already, including more than 100 from the UK alone.

Other UK cities with Amazon micromobility hubs include London and Manchester, with the retail giant pledging to double the number of European cities where it has ‘micromobility hubs’ by the end of 2025.
