Oxwash announce new e-bike partnership

Oxwash today announced a brand new partnership with EAV Solutions, adding the revolutionary EAV bikes to their existing fleet of electric cargo bikes.

The EAV 2Cubed bike is a zero-emissions cargo bike with a capacity of 2.0m³ to enable the Oxwash riders to deliver higher volumes of laundry as demand for their service continues to grow. The agility, visibility and enclosed cab of the EAV quaricyles make them the perfect vehicle as Oxwash expands their team of full-time, multi-disciplinary riders.

The bright blue electric cargo bikes are the distinctive signature of Oxwash and have been proven by academic studies to be 85 per cent more efficient than traditional diesel vans for urban last mile deliveries and do not contribute to the ever growing problem of congestion. The bikes are charged by fully renewable energy sources and produce no CO2 or NOx emissions. As such, they are the perfect solution to operate within the ULEZ to collect and deliver laundry from Oxwash’s consumer and business customers and are charged by fully renewable energy sources.

Founded in Oxford in 2018, Oxwash raised £1.75million in 2020 to launch their software enabled ‘lagoons’ in Cambridge and London.

Adam Barmby, EAV CEO and Founder, said: “Oxwash and EAV have a strong synergy in our engineering ethos and vision to disrupt logistics and the circular economy. We’re excited to collaborate on the future of urban logistics and reducing waste in the laundry and drycleaning sector”

Kyle Grant, Oxwash CEO and Founder, said: “We are harnessing the power of science to overhaul an outdated and highly polluting industry. Traditional methods can only go so far and have taken their toll on the planet. The zero-emissions EAV bikes are the cutting edge in sustainable local goods transport, and we are proud to have them as a partner on our journey to bring truly sustainable laundry to everyone.

“Our customers are central to everything we do, and the cutting-edge EAV’s will allow us to transport more than double our usual laundry capacity, for both bags and hanging items, per journey. This added efficiency means our customers benefit from more flexible delivery and pickup times.

“With more cities now introducing congestion charges and low-emission zones, our model ensures that we are futureproofing our delivery routes for our customers so that their service remains reliable and unparalleled.”

“Sustainability runs at the heart of the Oxwash operations, and as well as targeting road traffic pollution, the company processes are built towards tackling the decarbonisation of the laundry process, and microplastic pollution in the water system.

“The current industry is very polluting, using systems that shed harmful chemicals and synthetic non-biodegradable fibres into the local water system and oceans on a wider scale. The Oxwash process is nontoxic and saves up to 60 per cent of the water consumption versus a typical domestic or commercial washing machine. On average we save 174kg/CO2 per tonne of laundry washed, 25 litres of water per wash, and prevent 100 million plastic microfibres from going out into our oceans each day.”
