Summary

Traffic caused by delivery services has increased rapidly due to e-commerce. The delivery of goods by (cargo) bikes has a great potential to keep cities accessible and to improve road safety. To extend the use of cargo bikes, a flexible storage system can serve as an interface to hand cargo over from cars to cargo bikes and vice versa. Such a system will be tested by a local partner, who offers delivery by car and (cargo) bicycles alike.
