Mobycon is partner in the European project WEASTFLOWS, a project that aims to improve the flow of goods within the North West Europe region. The project is partly funded by the Interreg IVb program of the European Commission.
Companies who wish to try using an e-cargo bike for the transport of goods are now eligible to receive a subsidy of 800 euro, if they agree to cooperate for one year with Mobycon. Mobycon is conducting an evaluation of the e-cargo bikes to understand their utility as it relates to kilometers traveled, technical issues, the impact of bad weather, user satisfaction and other factors.
Electric-cargo bikes can be a solution for families with small children and groceries to transport, and they can also be a solution for the delivery of goods within cities. Two European Commission-sponsored projects aim to explore the possibilities offered by e-cargo bikes, and now opportunities for collaboration between the two projects are being explored.
Twice a year the newsletter of the European project WEASTFLOWS appears and is now available.
