After meeting on a university trip to Silicon Valley, HIVED co-founders Murvah Iqbal and Mathias Krieger started a data-focused van advertising startup together. When seeing the data on van routes, they quickly realised that the traditional delivery industry was inefficient and polluting and that there was a great need to improve it.
With a vision of creating the most sustainable, people-centric, efficient and affordable delivery network ever, Murvah and Mathias founded HIVED to reinvent modern parcel delivery.
The UK parcel delivery network is decarbonising the industry with its all electric fleet as it looks past last mile delivery to bring green solutions to all aspects of the parcel journey.
