Understanding and engaging with e-cargo bikes for sustainable city logistics

Lifelong wellbeing theme

What’s on offer?

A drop in event where people can explore the world of e-cargo bikes

What’s it about?

E-cargo bikes, a game-changer in first/last-mile logistics, often go unnoticed. 

This oversight hinders the transition to eco-friendly city logistics. Awareness of their benefits remains limited due to the scarcity of accessible information and support. Yet, cities have a unique chance to promote low-carbon alternatives. Our event seeks to bridge this gap by raising awareness and offering hands-on e-cargo bike experiences.

Attendees can explore the world of e-cargo bikes and take them for a spin. Through open surveys, we aim to pinpoint the needs they fulfil and their potential in Plymouth's sustainable first/last-mile logistics. Join us to unlock the potential of e-cargo bikes in transforming city transportation.

This drop-in event is aimed at: 

- people who are thinking of buying a cargo bike and want to know more 

- businesses who want to use cargo bikes 

- local community members who are interested in sustainable city logistics 

- members of the public who want to try out a cargo bike.

No registration is required to attend and we look forward to seeing you. 

Who’s leading the event?

Dr Minchul Sohn, Lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management, Dr Jonathan Lean, Associate Professor in Strategic Management, Dr Jonathan Moizer, Associate Professor in Business Operations and Strategy and Dr Lauren Ansell, Lecturer in Computer Science
