From AirCargoNews:

Deutsche Post has put its 1,000th e-bike from its StreetScooter subsidiary into service today in Osnabrück. The German postal giant, owner of DHL, says that the electrically assisted cargo bikes can hit 25 km/h and can carry up to 50kg, “a tremendous help for letter carriers in urban areas.”

The StreetScooter Work version is a superior version of the concept in many respects, including ergonomics, efficiency, load distribution and safety standards and can carry four mail crates instead of three.

It is worth pointing out that UK’s Royal Mail, under the stewardship of a North American CEO, totally wiped out its bicycle fleet.
