Did you know that 8 out of 10 shopping trips (77%) done by car could be easily shifted to bikes?
Did you know that 25% of all commercial urban deliveries could be done by cargo bike?
Cycle-logistics could help to achieve a number of EU targets - reduce congestion and CO2 emissions while creating more sustainable jobs and promoting growth and innovation.
Following the ‘Declaration of Luxembourg’, the first-ever EU-wide policy framework for cycling recently signed under the Luxembourg Presidency, European Cyclists Federation (ECF) organised a ‘Round Table on Cycle Logistics in European cities’ which aims to build on this success by providing clear recommendations on the role of cycling within the new Urban Logistics Guidelines which are currently being processed by the European Commission.
The Round Table held on the 17th of November 2015 and it brought together key stakeholders from industry, retail & delivery sectors together with EU MEPs & European Commission officials.
MEP and Chairman of the Transport Committee Michael Cramer kicked-off the event with an opening speech proposing a view for the future mobility in our cities.
