New delivery methods for new challenges
Climate concerns, combined with new restrictions on access to certain city centers (such as the proliferation of Low Emission Zones and congestion in downtown areas), are driving delivery professionals to rethink their strategies. For 12% of them, this is even the major issue that the industry must address today. While many solutions are being tested, one of them stands out for sector players: the cargo bike.
Capable of providing city center deliveries up to 1.6 times faster than a standard-sized van, with a significantly lower carbon footprint, cargo bikes are now the primary solution being used or tested by urban delivery professionals, especially to address last-mile delivery challenges. While it doesn't aim to replace urban delivery with vans, the cargo bike provides a complementary solution that SOLUTRANS intends to introduce to you.
Cargo bike at SOLUTRANS
Working to promote the transportation industry within a greener framework, the SOLUTRANS trade fair will, for the first time, feature a dedicated area for cargo bikes. Located in the heart of Hall 1, this area will host around thirty companies specializing in this field. It's an opportunity for SOLUTRANS visitors to engage with these stakeholders to understand how this new form of mobility can meet their business needs.
And because buying a vehicle isn't like shopping from a catalog, the 2023 edition of SOLUTRANS will also offer visitors the chance to test these vehicles during the event. To facilitate this, there will be a 250-meter indoor test track available to participants and exhibitors. It will offer real-world-like situations to closely simulate urban use (inclines, tight corners, narrow lanes, etc.).
