Delivery & Distribution

Revolution Rickshaws provides comprehensive mini-freight delivery programs for clients in New York City. Our team of logistics professionals works closely with each prospective client to ensure RR is qualified to meet its precise needs. We review key elements including delivery zones, delivery timing/windows, product integrity/safety, product volume, packaging, multimodal issues, handling, warehousing, marketing opportunities, routing, staffing, and more during the intake process. Our service is ideal from some clients and not for others, so we’ll even make recommendations for other logistics solutions if ours isn’t appropriate.

Contact RR today to see whether your delivery needs can be met by our full delivery programs. We’ve established delivery zones of operations in both Manhattan and Brooklyn, and we link with third-party distributors as necessary to facilitate full city-wide service, if necessary and appropriate—our capabilities may surprise you!

Fleet Leasing

Benefit from active transport systems at a low cost with an RR freight-trike lease program. Why invest tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars into fossil fueled van or truck equipment acquisition, maintenance, insurance, and management—not to mention the inevitable parking and moving violations—for city logistics if you don’t absolutely need to?  Operate one or one hundred freight trikes and execute some or all of your enterprise city logistics and marketing program via RR.

The experts at RR will back you every step of the way: Comprehensive support services includes preventive maintenance, employee training, on-street support,  convenient garaging in midtown, advertising media, and expert help in setting up and optimizing your program.  Flexible lease terms available on short and long term basis, with monthly rentals starting as low as $645 per month.

Delivery & Logistics FAQs

Click a question below to view the answer:

Can you transport perishable items – like food – by freight trike?

We’ve successfully executed thousands of deliveries of perishable goods to homes and businesses. We work with each client diligently until all stakeholders are satisfied with every aspect of a particular city logistics system – including temperature-control systems. Ask us about solutions – plenty are available.

How do your trikes perform in inclement conditions?

Our trikes are designed to operate in every condition Mother Nature throws at NYC: cold, rain, sleet, snow – you name it. Because RR and our leasing and preventive-maintenance clients pedal trikes – not bikes – we never are forced to suspend operations; bicycle operators, on the other hand, are liable to stand down in icy and snowy conditions. Trikes are inherently stable, cannot tip over, and roll safely in all conditions. If motor vehicles are able to navigate the streets, our work trikes are able to navigate the streets – it’s as simple as that.

How much weight/volume can a rickshaw carry?

Each freight trike is rated to carry up to 550 pounds; we can haul heavier loads on occasion, but we prefer to do so rarely, as we don’t want to stress out our trike – or our deliverists! A typical cargo box sports a capacity of about 35 cubic feet – they’re approximately 3 feet wide, 3 feet high, and 4 feet long.

I own a local enterprise. I want to deploy a rickshaw to execute my own deliveries. How do I get started?

Get in touch with RR to review your needs. We offer one-year (or shorter) freight-trike leases; as well, we are able again to sell trikes again as a Cycles Maximus agent. Additional elements of a program include legal and safety training for deliverists, preventive maintenance systems for the trikes, on-street support, and management support to optimize ongoing efficiency and success. If you already own one or more Cycles Maximus trikes, RR can establish with you a comprehensive equipment maintenance program. RR also offers consulting services for companies ready to optimize their delivery programs by upgrading to active logistics solutions from petrol logistics solutions for operations.
