Interview with Rodrigo Uliano, Business Partnership Manager at Delivery Mates Uk – Express delivery company in the UK
- Why did you choose for sustainable mobility?
Delivery Mates are always looking for adding value to our services and stand out from the competition as well as contribute with the environment.
- What made you decide for Silence?
Silence Motors has been our partner since the first day with its S02, an efficient and technological scooter perfect for deliveries.
We compared with several models on the market back them and Silence had the best solution for the demanding delivery operation that we have, some of the best features for the adoption was: lower gravity centre, cargo capacity, and good ergonomics with great space for tall riders.
- How much do you save with electric motorcycle?
We found that transitioning our fleet to electric motorbikes is profitable for our company.
Given the considerable efficiency of electric motorcycles compared to internal combustion models the maintenance cost, Delivery Mates brand awareness and customer engagement are the key points to have the return on investment in less than 2 years.
- What benefit of Silence model S02 helps you in your professional activity?
Has a great cargo capacity and a lower gravity centre result in more profit for the company and a safer ride for the rider.
- How does the delivery driver benefit from it?
After working several hours the rider gets less tired because of the noise reduction, better torque acceleration, low gravity centre and don’t forget that silence has the best space for the rider on the market this are very important for our workforce.
- Where is the delivery sector headed?
The delivery Sector is headed to be completely on-demand and automated, the customer will purchase online at the speed of the thought and the goods will be delivered in minutes.
- Does the electric scooter improve the quality of the service?
Enormously, making our cities quieter especially at night when your motorcycles are crossing the city with the midnight pizza delivery order with a silent and peaceful Electric motorbike.
- Do you think that the type of vehicle (electric / combustion) will influence your sector? Why?
Delivery Mates are in the middle of the on-demand economy, that it’s an environment that easily adopts new technologies and new work relations, that is why electric vehicles are embedded in the present concept and the future will stay with electrical but also automated vehicles.
- Can the delivery sector influence the quality of life of cities? How? Why?
Taking the craziness of consumption from the streets, there’s no need for getting in the traffic buy something.
People can save their time to productivity, not spending on silly things like cook their regular meal or buy new shoes. Everything can be done by the tap of a button from their house and usually can be delivered faster than they physically could do by themselves paying nothing more for it.
- Plans of expansion.
We have the biggest motorcycle workforce footprint in England and naturally, we are expanding in other countries as well like Spain, Italy and Germany.
