Our 1350+ Electric Picnic Vehicles (EPV’s) are the visible connection between our hubs and customer households.

While managing a big fleet on a daily basis,we also need to innovate and scale every process. When there are issues you quickly identify the cause, go to the drawing board and come up with inventive solutions.

Your skills and determination keep the wheels running and our orders delivered. This is a major opportunity to disrupt the current standards of last mile delivery!
