UPS has been using this method across the pond for awhile. Park the big truck in a central spot and do deliveries out of it with these. I live in Portland and will look out for them.

This is one in England which has a similar climate to Portland. It looks much easier to manage to me in that it has less frontal and side area and thus less of a handful in the wind, which usually accompanies rain here. Get the carriers a decent set of rain gear and they should be fine.

I personally think that this makes more sense in that the main truck can have the bike aboard and park in a central location and routes spoke from there. It could also be used in conjunction with a truck that is making deliveries and could work with it to make deliveries in the tighter sections of town.

The fact that those UPS ones are 1000lbs fully loaded is a lot of mass and it is wider than the DHL bike as shown so harder to maneuver.
