At Gorillas, we are committed to creating the best environment for our crew. To ensure they feel warm, safe and comfortable during cold times, we have created a specific winter rider kit.
This new kit includes jackets, rain gear, neck warmers and winter gloves with touchscreen functionality and reflectors on the gear, to add visibility. A power bank as well as phone holders and protection glasses, are also provided to full-time riders as additional safety precautions. Our clothings has been designed with reflective fabrics that are glowing at night, enabling our riders to be spotted easily and to ensure their safety on the road. We have created training sessions to guide riders through these different items, their functionality and how to properly use them on the bikes.
In addition to a complete set of equipment, our riders are using latest generation electric bikes. To ensure the quality of our bikes and to detect defects sooner, we are continuing to have obligatory daily checks of all bikes and our fleet is professionally serviced twice a week.
Our warehouse crew receives gloves, safety shoes and a safety knife to ensure they are able to work in the warehouse in a safe way.
We will continue to implement new measures based on the feedback of our employees and make deliveries safer and more comfortable.
