Zedify raises cash for cargo bike growth

Cargo Bikes

13 July 2020
 

E-Cargo bike company Zedify has raised £300,000 from private investors to help the business grow. Zedify was founded in 2018 by Rob King and Sam Keam who have over 20 years of combined experience in zero-emission logistics. As well as e-cargo bikes and trikes the company uses electric vans.  

It provides local businesses with a full logistics service of same-day deliveries around a city as well as next day options around the UK. The latter are delivered in partnership with Hermes and DHL. 

The company now operates from micro-consolidation centres in eight cities: Brighton, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Norwich, Southampton and Winchester. It has plans to increase this to 20.

The investment was led by Green Angel Syndicate (GAS), whose director, Antoine Pradayrol, joins the Zedify board as investment director.

The funding will be used to improve Zedify’s technology platform and to recruit staff in sales, marketing, and operations.
