We are Kale Collective, a London-based startup. We are building Cavolo.

With urgent and ambitious climate targets, the need to drastically cut motor traffic in cities is clearer than ever.

E-cargo bikes have been shown to consistently outcompete van-based legacy delivery services. With the rise of e-commerce and growing urbanization, cargo-bike logistics is a multi-solution to healthier and more humane cities.

Our mission is to drive the transition to cargo-bike logistics in dense urban areas, and to support the complex demands of modern last-mile operations.

Our Approach

  1. Intelligent sustainability. An increasing number of businesses are committing to net zero targets. We believe intelligent solutions and a sustainable future go hand in hand. We leverage modern machine learning methods to accelerate a green transition in urban logistics.
  2. Dancing with systems. Urban environments are inherently complex and mired in uncertainty. We explicitly represent this uncertainty into our models to support operations that are resilient to unexpected events.
  3. Efficiency through diversity. We build tools to empower organisations of all sizes, to support the wider ecosystem of logistics and mobility businesses.
