Electric cargo bike manufacturer EAV has appointed Halfords as its fleet SMR partner.

The deal will see EAV customers offered SMR packages through Halfords, including at remote locations via Halfords’ mobile technicians.

The EAV2Cubed bike has a load capacity of 2m3, and can carry cargo weighing up to 170kg. Fleet customers include Amazon, FedEx, and DPD.

EAV CEO and founder Adam Barmby said: “Halfords is one of the best-known British brands, so to join forces with them on this project is very exciting.  

“EAV is still a small but growing business; however, we have big expansion plans with our future transport vision range of urban specific vehicles.  

“This partnership will allow us to offer service, maintenance, and repair from Halfords, a trusted large company, without losing our personal approach that is synonymous with EAV.”

Halfords for Business head of commercial and business development Chris Oakley said: “We’re pleased to announce the partnership with EAV to support their fleet customers with service, maintenance and repair through our Halfords Mobile Experts. 

“In line with the Halfords for Business strategy of helping to keep the nation’s workforce moving, this partnership helps organisations move to a future-proofed and environmentally friendly solution, whilst maximising fleet utilisation and demonstrating operational excellence.”
