The strongest link in the delivery chain

The Last Mile is repeatedly identified as the most expensive and inefficient link in the entire delivery chain. Over the past decade e-commerce has increased substantially, and for the generation born since 2000 this has become their primary retail channel. The need to visit a physical store to make a purchase is perceived as troublesome and time-consuming. In 2019, 10% of retail sales in Sweden were carried out online. This figure is expected to increase significantly in the near future. One in every three households now shops online for their groceries.


One of the biggest challenges facing the world today is to develop sustainable transport that has minimal environmental impact, while ensuring the end customer a high level of service. Deliveries are currently distributed by lorries, smaller courier vans, electric-powered small cars and bikes to stores and consumers in city centres.

With an increased flow of people and vehicles, it also becomes more difficult for companies to distribute deliveries using lorries and larger courier vans. More and more cities are planning to make parts of their city centre car-free, either completely or during certain periods. As a partner of Postnord for over 20 years, we have jointly developed the bikes for their operations.

Through the development of CENTRO we are demonstrating our trusted knowledge of the bike not only as a work tool, but also a colleague in day-to-day work and we’re doing it in an eco-friendly way.

Monark Cargo’s CENTRO-3 is a custom-made e-cargo bike with a customised container or platform with a capacity of up to 1.4 m³. This model is a good eco-friendly option for flexible distribution of goods in city centres with minimal environmental impact. Centro 3 can easily be adapted to customer requirements with regard to container or platform. We anticipate a significant increase in the use of bikes for distribution in city centres. Some of the many benefits of the bike as a tool are low cost, no fossil fuels and smooth passage through traffic.
