Cargo Bikes

An asset for a sustainable transport system

Do you want to explore how smaller cities can act as change drivers in transforming the logistics of municipalities, businesses, and social & cultural institutions?

We would cordially like to invite you to a one-day hybrid conference, which helps you to explore the possibilities for cargo bike promotion within your own organization or to citizens and businesses in your area.

  • Effect and impact as municipalities offer cargo bike lending schemes to businesses, citizens, and internally to service departments.
  • Keynote speaker - Richard Armitage, Executive Director of ECLF, the European Cycle Logistics Federation
  • Panel talk – Inspiration and new opportunities
  • Workshop - Explore your possible path and find out how to kick-start the modal shift in your organization and/or area

The focus of the conference is small and medium-sized cities, presenting tools, examples, and methods to overcome challenges and address your community's transportation needs.
