Hasn't UPS been using bikes for delivery in a few cities in Europe for awhile?

UPS uses our service for fast local delivery in DC.

To be clear, they do not subcontract their own deliveries to us, just use us as couriers. We provide service times of two hours or less generally speaking, less than 30min for same zone rush, possibly faster can be arranged depending on your needs, a different type of service from what UPS offers.
