The vision was to enable the new uses of urban logistics generated by the very strong growth of e-commerce.
ZE Combi is the COMBINATION between a Mobile Container and an Urban Electric Vehicle Container’s Loader. Thereby separating the “Containing” from the “Transporting”, the massification, the multimodality, the mutualization and carbon-free deliveries become possible.
The Baseline of our logo “I Do & I Understand” comes from the famous Confucius’ proverb:
« I Hear and I Forget, I See and I Remember, I Do and I Understand »
As the founders of ZE Combi “DID” through their respective experiences, they created this innovative solution for last mile logistics.
We have solved parcels’ handling and load breaking issue thanks to a patented system of retractable wheels set up on the Container. The Container Combi Cub can be loaded into the vehicle effortlessly without any lifting tools.
