About us

microFleet® is an innovative tech company driving greater uptake and sharing of micromobility throughout Australia and globally.

Through our sister company Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd we supply and service the majority of Australia Post’s e-bike fleet. We are currently seeking investment, development partners and clients to accelerate the commercialisation and global delivery of microFleet®.

Our story

The microFleet® team have imported, built and serviced premium light electric vehicles (LEVs) since 2004

microFleet® began as part of Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd (EV), established in 2004 by electric bike pioneers Scott Dickason and Steve Smart.

EV has since become a leading LEV manufacturer and service provider, including building and maintaining Australia Post’s electric mail bike fleet, now 2,000 strong.

In 2021, we established microFleet® to help address the COVID-driven boom in the global LEV market and enable micromobility throughout Australia and globally.

We also manage the Cargo Craft brand and our team now leads the design, customisation, marketing, selling and leasing of LEV fleets, accessories and docking stations across Australia.

Sustainability

Light electric vehicles (LEVs) are the cleanest, safest and most cost-effective mode of urban transport in congested cities.

A number of factors are driving a global boom in LEVs:

Accessibility & affordability

Freedom of movement is a fundamental human right and by extension so is access to affordable transport. LEVs are an order of magnitude cheaper and more efficient than traditional cars and large electric vehicles. A Danish study found the total cost (social and private) per person km for driving versus cycling is 81 cents and 13 cents respectively.

The impact of Covid-19

COVID-19 has forced many people and businesses to re-evaluate their life, work and travel choices. Working from home and remote offices is now commonplace and global LEV sales and ridership have boomed as people switch from crowded public transport to socially distanced travel modes.

Reduced emissions

Transport accounts for 17% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, increasing nearly 60% since 1990 – more than any other sector. LEVs are virtually emissions-free, reduce congestion and road injuries, and are an order of magnitude cheaper to purchase and operate than cars.

Congestion and land use

Road congestion will cost Australia $40B per annum by 2031. The average Australian commuter is stuck in traffic 5.7 days per year. In the same time it takes the average commuter to drive and park, an e-bike can travel up to 15km with little effort. Roads and related infrastructure occupy vast space: 30 to 60% of land in western cities. Cars are idle 95% of the time and occupy the same parking space as 10 bikes. If more urban land was devoted to LEVs, it would alleviate congestion, emissions, noise, social exclusion, health, accidents and road infrastructure costs.

Health

Car exhaust emissions have multiple health impacts while active transport has multiple health benefits. 56% of Australian adults are too inactive while 67% are overweight or obese. Inactivity costs Australia $1.5b per year in additional health costs. In Australia, we drive our kids to school in record numbers, up from 25% of trips 40 years ago to 75% today, despite 60% living less than 3km from school. Health professionals estimate more than 70% of children and 91% of young people are too physically inactive.

Jobs

Cycling creates almost three times as many jobs in manufacturing and sales as the car industry for the same turnover. Cycling also drives higher job growth in infrastructure and tourism. Further, cycling and micro-mobility jobs are more localised and require lower skills, creating opportunities for a more inclusive workforce. Micro-mobility also has an economic multiplier effect. Cycling tourists are known as ‘wallets on wheels’ because they spend more time and more money on local businesses than other tourists.

Investment

In response to these factors, governments around the world are investing in better-dedicated cycling infrastructure and supporting the LEV industry through grants and economic stimulus packages.
