FreshDirect Mulling Bike-Delivery Plan


When it comes to FreshDirect, complaints over noisy, stinky trucks go hand in hand with those plastic-encased four-packs of apples. Now DNAinfo has it that the grocer seems to be mulling bike delivery, schooling employees in bicycle safety and saying in a statement that the company is “open” to the idea. It’s unclear what kind of two-wheeled vehicle could cart enough groceries for FreshDirect’s delivery needs — whatever it is, it would probably produce a new group of complainers: pissed off cyclists.
