Home healthcare deliveries

Following a successful October trial, we’re delighted to be supporting Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s home healthcare delivery service, for low carbon, high speed daily multi-drop runs. Our healthcare riders are loving this important work!

Durham Market Hall collaboration

We’re thrilled to be supporting Durham Market Hall’s new online shop, giving local Durham residents a home delivery option from market traders. This is also our first software collaboration, with customer orders flowing straight through in to our routing software, enabling faster, more accurate home delivery.

Coming home…

Such a thrill to contribute to Food and Drink North East‘s first campaign film. What a glorious showcase for the best of our region’s food producers. We believe wholeheartedly in supporting enterprises than enable short food mile chains. Our rider Duncan certainly doesn’t regret that very early start…


ZMOVE heading to Durham

ZMOVE expect to launch a new zero emissions delivery service for Durham in early autumn. We’d really welcome expressions of interest for electric cargo bike riders and electric vehicle drivers to help us make Durham a safer, cleaner more sociable place to live and work.

Partnership progress

As key customers Cake Stories, the Flower Folk and Local Heroes NE expand their delivery footprint, we’re growing our zero-emissions service to support them. On Friday 12th, four of the team were delivering concurrently across a roughly 300 square mile area, stretching from Washington to Blyth, in a mix of e-bikes and electric cars.

Local Heroes NE delivery day

Our support for the Local Heroes NE virtual market is slowly growing, including this first pick up and delivery of goods in to the packing hub this week.

Coastal cruising

We made our first coastal run today, dropping literature at North Tyneside Council offices in Cobalt and then picking up Pure Knead bread in Whitley Bay for the Local Heroes NE virtual market. With new active measures being planning on the coast, we’d be keen to build a weekly coastal run. More to follow!

New delivery zone!

ZMOVE can now deliver further across Newcastle and Gateshead, using a range of zero-emission vehicles to maintain fast, clean, quiet distribution. The map below shows our new 78 square mile zone, including the postcodes covered. Do drop us a line to discuss your business delivery needs further. (nick@zmove.uk, tel 0191 603 1780.)

Coping in a Crisis

Our home delivery collaboration with Cake Stories is showcased in this Dan Prince Photography “Coping in a Crisis” short, with support from Food and Drink North East. Thanks so much to Ben and Hannah, Dan and the FADNE team for their support is sharing our #golocal ethos.

Bringing it home…

After a period of process and practice readjustment in the face of the Covid-19 lock down, the team are undertaking home delivery work around Newcastle and Gateshead, alongside our daily courier service for Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts.

Today’s home delivery run for the Flower Folk showcased ZMOVE’s efficient service. 28 floral deliveries packed in an electric trike (with job specific shelving to maximise load space) and dropped during the morning, averaging 7 deliveries per hour over 18 urban and suburban miles. No vehicle emissions and little road space occupied = an appropriate solution for local home delivery in a pandemic?
