We are looking for an individual or organisation that can work with several small cargo bike companies to examine and evaluate working practices and provide recommendations on how to improve the health and wellbeing of staff by changing operational and environmental conditions.
As part of our health effects of air pollution programme, in April 2021 we partnered with Team London Bridge (TLB) and MP Smarter Travel on an 18-month project called Bikes for Business. The project is designed to promote the use of e-cargo bikes for business-related freight across north Southwark.
By engaging with, and providing advice to, a wide range of businesses, the project aims to encourage over 300 businesses to trial e-cargo bikes, rather than using polluting vehicles.
The project will be focused on areas around the Low Line, the railway viaduct linking Bankside, London Bridge and Bermondsey south towards Walworth. This builds on and extends a pilot project that ran from 2018 to 2020, which was part-funded by Transport for London (TfL).
We would like to understand how we can use the Bikes for Business project to support cargo bike operators to actively support the health and wellbeing of their employees. We want to work with organisations that can help us to achieve the following objectives:
Please read the full invitation to tender and submit a proposal (maximum six pages) by email to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org that includes:

Contact Ben Pearce and Nicola Bristow if you have any questions. We would be very happy to discuss this further with you.
