We all enjoy getting our online orders quickly delivered right to our doorsteps. However, most of us do not question the negative side effects of it. Deliveries made by motorized transport, contribute to traffic jams, air pollution, and reduced road safety. Couriers are often only hired for the short-term or on demand, therefore not receiving fair compensation or a long-term job perspective. Our guest, Jérôme Lühr, founding member of the bike courier collective CROW Cycle Berlin, shares his critical view on the gig economy and insights into setting up an independent bike courier service.
