About this Event

  • What are the benefits for businesses that use e-cargo bike services?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities facing operators running those services?
  • What has changed as a result of Covid-19, and how does that leave the current state of this market?
  • How can we use evidence from tracking systems to plan cities where cargo bikes can operate more safely and efficiently?
  • How does this all fit with Government initiatives to support e-cargo bikes and what more does Government need to do?
  • What can we learn from relevant experience beyond the UK?
  • What does all this mean for the wider logistics sector?

This webinar will explore some of these challenges as well as the opportunities for cycle logistics through expert speakers and a wide audience of decision makers, business representatives and transport planners.

It is part of Sustrans' Life After Lockdown series exploring the big challenges affecting people, travel and neighbourhoods as a result of Covid-19. It is supported by Bike Life, the UK's largest assessment of cycling and liveable cities in the UK.
