Landbell Group and last mile e-mobility

In the last three years, we’ve seen the rise of a new global industry: the last mile e-mobility or micro mobility industry. These solutions, which help people move from a transportation hub to their final destination, have popped up everywhere in the world, especially in big urban areas.

Mobility as a service business model, based on shared e-scooters is successful, resulting in an exponential growth of a new class of companies that operate thousands of e-scooters globally.

Generally speaking, sustainability is fundamental to these micro mobility operators: this can be seen in the way they manage not only their operations, but also their end-of-life vehicles.

Implementing sustainable recycling programs that fit the needs of micro mobility operators is a challenge. Many factors must be taken into account: the diversity of materials that are in the vehicles; the safety issues linked with the management of the Li-ion batteries that power the vehicles; or the geographical dispersion of the operations are just some of them. Different environmental regulatory obligations for extended producer responsibility (EPR) in each country also impact this activity.

Landbell Group’s global takeback team have developed a specialised programme for this market. Our transparent, cost-effective solution ensures full compliance with EPR regulations, a complete reverse logistics process, and maximum recycling rates. We also provide waste management training to local managers and a control tower view of all operations to the customer programme managers.

In the last year, Landbell Group has recycled more than 200 tonnes (approximately 11,000 scooters) in 16 different countries, spread across Europe, and North and South America.
