CYCLELOGISTICS - Living Laboratory
CycleLogistics aims to communicate the topic and potential of the use of bicycles for the transport of various goods to the transport sector, municipalities and service providers, and to encourage existing bicycle couriers to extend their services to the transportation of heavier goods.
In order to achieve this, Living Laboratories will be organised in the partner cities to provide the above mentioned target groups and businesses with a selection of different cargo bikes for them to try them out and assess possibilities to integrate cargo bikes into their fleets. The different models of cargo bikes available on the market vary with regard to their handling and driving behaviour and it is important that potential new users find the bike that is best suited for their purposes.
This activity aims to extend the use of cargo bicycles for light weight delivery companies that are already involved in this field, to trigger new applications in the field, to further the use of cargo bikes for communal services in cities, to improve the frame conditions for deliveries with cargo bicycles, and to further the use of cargo bicycles for small business services in cities.
The “Living Laboratory” will get many more cargo bikes on Europe’s inner city roads and will raise the image of CycleLogistics as a modern way of goods transport that is part of the life style of a city worth living in
