Les Coursiers Nantais cooperative

Les Coursiers Nantais platform cooperative in Nantes, France. It was founded in 2017 with help of the CoopCycle federation. It offers an alternative to large platform companies and puts emphasis on eco-friendly solutions by solely operating via bike and cargo bikes as well as member participation. Related to a circular economy logic, the cooperative offers a daily short-circuit delivery service, between local actors and their customers. The local economy is favoured, which allows local actors to gain recognition and visibility. Since 2020, the cooperative is a so-called SCOP, a cooperative and participatory society. Subject to the imperative of profitability like any company, a SCOP benefits from democratic governance and a distribution of results primarily assigned to the sustainability of jobs and the organisation’s aims.
