Clean Delivery with Courant Plus

September 25, 2020

Swift, green and smart food delivery, is that even possible? Yes it is, and Courant Plus has made it its mission. Established in 2019, the company offers a clean delivery service to its Montreal-based customers, thanks to its electric cargo bikes and trucks. In fact, we use Courant Plus to deliver our meals in several Montreal neighbourhoods because here at Locaal, we not only promote local foods, we also place our carefully selected partners front and centre!

Bikes for eco-friendly delivery

The greatest asset of Courant Plus? Their fleet of electric cargo bikes! These bikes are equipped with an electric motor to make it easier for the delivery person to get around the city, and can haul up to 150 kg. They do not emit CO2 when rolling, whereas a truck can produce up to 50 kg of CO2 per day (Transportation Research Procedia). The use of these bikes therefore allows for carbon neutral delivery. In doing so, we contribute to reducing our environmental footprint, not to mention traffic jams, street noise, accidents and several other nuisances.

How does it work?

The parcels are picked up early in the morning at Locaal’s food plant where your meals are meticulously prepared and then dispatched to Courant Plus’ warehouse to be sorted by areas served. Packages that are to be delivered in the Montreal downtown core are placed on the electric cargo bikes and those intended for the other areas where carbon neutral delivery is available are loaded in electric trucks with a range of up to 300 km. Courant Plus’ fleet has been designed to cater to the varying needs of the Montreal community.

Carbon neutral delivery

At Courant Plus, each trip is optimized to be as efficient as possible and clean delivery is available in an area that extends from Westmount to Hochelaga, and from Autoroute Métropolitaine to the St. Lawrence River (in green on the map below). What about the areas outside this zone? Conventional delivery service in these areas will be provided by Courrier Plus, a partner company of Courant Plus. And remember, no matter which area you have your Locaal box delivered to, delivery is always free with any purchase of $100 or more!
