Europe, which is enjoying a marked cargo bike boom, has taken the lead in developing comprehensive logistics networks relying largely on e-cargo bikes. This involves building collaborative bottom-up networks with local suppliers, receivers and customers embedded in the network.

Experts at Landor LINKS' previous webinar on e-cargo opportunities stated that network planning is a critical element in the transition from one-off schemes to comprehensive logistics networks.

In May 2020, 18 local authorities in England secured funding from the £2m eCargo Bike Grant Fund, funded by the Department for Transport and delivered by Energy Saving Trust, supported by schemes offering 20% grant funding. The DfT is expected to announce additional funding in 2021.

This webinar will explore how lessons from Europe can support the UK in taking its next steps:

  • European best practice: powerful and cost effective solutions to solving environmental, logistical and congestion challenges

  • UK update: case studies

  • Using cargo bikes as transport assets: construction, school transport, residential sharing schemes, leasing schemes, pool eCargo bikes and municipal services

  • Planning for Cargo hubs: storage, pick & pack and green city transportation

  • Creating standards for future network development

  • Market development, safety, and passenger transport opportunities
