Check out the New Amsterdam Project. They are a human powered delivery company based in Boston. What I really like is that their cargo bikes can hold 800 lbs worth of deliveries. Now that is pretty magnificent.
NAP provides human-powered pick-up and delivery services for local businesses, organizations and universities. We can provide your business with full service route delivery- inclusive of drivers, fossil-fuel free vehicles, and unparalleled marketing opportunities for your business on our unique, environmentally friendly trucks.
So is NAP the future of short distance deliveries with in cities? I think they might be onto something.
