New Delhi, Dubai, Agency News:
The UPS eQuad!
The first of UPS’s four-wheeled electric-assist cycle has arrived in the UAE. UPS will showcase the eQuad at Expo 2020, so you can see first-hand a sustainable logistics solution for urban deliveries, reducing noise, emissions, and curb-side congestion.
With Accenture, we delivered two virtual sessions empowering young learners to succeed in a digital world, building skills towards rewarding careers.
The eQuad started its journey in the U.K. and made stops in France and Germany, before arriving in the UAE, where it will be showcased at Expo 2020 Dubai. This new vehicle builds on UPS’s growing fleet of sustainable delivery solutions that improves air quality, decrease congestion, and reduces emissions.
UPS’s use of eQuads complements its three-wheeled Rytle eBikes which will also be showcased during the expo and are perfect for navigating dense urban areas.
What’s 3-feet wide, has 4 wheels, and low emissions?
The first of these was “Future Ready: The Resilience Factor – Technologies, Tools, and Tips for Resilient Careers and Wellbeing” and is perfect for those looking to upskill in this new digital era!
UPS will also feature its futuristic Arrival EVs. Developed in partnership with U.K.-based transportation technology firm Arrival, these vehicles use state-of-art charging technology to provide more than 150 miles of travel on a single charge – a longer range than other vehicles.
Overall, UPS has more than 12,000 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles deployed worldwide and is committed to purchasing up to 10,000 electric vehicles from Arrival.
“We are very excited to have these great technologies at Expo 2020,” said Alan Williams, vice president, Expo 2020 sponsorships and operations. “We have a unique opportunity to showcase innovation and the sustainable logistics that will take us into the future.”
The second session was titled “2020 Hours of Code – Introduction to Coding for elementary school children” and is the perfect introduction for children to the world of coding.
