Cargo bikes - an asset for a sustainable transport system

Hosted by

Växjö municipality

How smaller cities can act as change drivers in transforming the logistics of municipalities, businesses and social & cultural institutions.

Hybrid conference October 14th, 2021, in Växjö, Sweden or online

The focus of the conference is small and medium-sized cities, presenting tools, examples, and methods to overcome challenges and address your community's transportation needs. Compared to big cities and megacities, the small and medium-sized cities normally have their own specific conditions to consider, which requires specific investigations and solutions.

The conference programme

Effect and impact as municipalities offer cargo bike lending schemes to businesses, citizens, and internally to service departments. 
Keynote speaker - Richard Armitage, Executive Director of ECLF, the European Cycle Logistics Federation
