An e-delivery service launches in Exmouth – May update

ExeCargo seeks new Riders

.

Last month, Execargo was launched:

An e-delivery service launches in Exmouth – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

Offering a good range of delivery services for independent retailers in Exmouth:

Execargo | Grocery Deliveries.

.

This is a trial period for the service – and as this posting on their Facebook pages says, they’re looking for volunteers:

.

We are not currently charging for the service as we are in a trial period to get our logistics ship shape, to gauge interest in the service and to help our independent shops after a really tough year. We currently deliver for select shops only (for free), who have kindly agreed to be part of the trial. When we start charging (end of June, TBC), all funds will go towards purchasing (or ongoing hire) for the cargo bike, to allow the project to continue. Once surplus monies are available, we hope it will become paid work for both delivery riders and logistics folk, helping the local economy.

ExeCargo seeks new Riders

ExeCargo is currently in a trial period, which is showing that there is a fine appetite for an eco-friendly ecargo bike delivery service in Exmouth. Our thanks go to everyone who has helped get the project off the ground (Exmouth Cycles, the Transition Exmouth crew, Exmouth Town Council, CopyRite) and in particular, Thomas Wheeler. Tom has been our main rider and logistics manager and kindly set up the Execargo website for us (This website has been closed as of March 2022). Tom had been planning an eco-friendly delivery service in Exmouth, and when he heard about ExeCargo he offered to join forces with us, which gave the project a massive boost. Following the trial period, the plan is to start charging for the service, and eventually for ExeCargo to provide paid full time employment. Tom’s dedication and commitment to the project proved his worth of taking it on, every step of the way, and so we were all devastated when Tom was suddenly taken to hospital earlier in the month. All our thoughts are with Tom and his partner. Tom launches @myhearttransplantstory 

Execargo continue to make deliveries, allbeit on a part time bases, thanks to the help of Transition Exmouth members, Adrian, Grant and Catherine who have been helping out with deliveries whilst we recruit new volunteers to help us finish the trial. “There will always be a place for volunteers on the team,” explains Angela Mynard, ExeCargo project lead. “Once the trail period is finished and ExeCargo becomes a fully functioning paid service, our volunteers will help us to raise money for our own ecargobike by making deliveries to supporting our independent businesses and help cut down our carbon footprint, as well as supporting other community projects in town, such as Exmouth Friends in Need. What’s not to love! Get involved!”
