Retail delivery using small vehicles


You may be surprised to know that there are warehouses that employ tricycles for their deliveries. Take for instance 2 bags of cement that you will deliver by truck. That is not practical while using a tricycle can save you gas. However, the small delivery vehicles are only good for the retailing business since wholesaler usually deliver the products in bulk hence a truck is required.


I agree with the premise that small vehicles like the 3 wheels are good for small cargoes only. But definitely it can be a big help to ease the problem of too much trucks on the road. Even if one truckload would need 10 tricycles to deliver then I guess that is still a good alternative since the 3 wheels are not covered by the truck ban during the daytime.
