The trendy topic of cargo bike sharing is finally getting its own European expert conference. Cargo Bike Sharing Europe will celebrate its premiere on 18-19 May 2022. The conference is organised by the City Changer Cargo Bike partner,, and hosted by polisMOBILITY, the new trade fair for forward-looking mobility, urban life and digitalisation in Cologne. Cargo Bike Sharing Europe will bring together operators, hard- & software providers, cities, urban planners and other stakeholders.

Across Europe, cities, initiatives and companies are discovering cargo bike sharing as a contribution to sustainable transport and a feasible business model. In Germany, cargo bike sharing schemes already exist in over 130 municipalities. According to the 2021 bicycle monitor of the Federal Ministry of Transport, every fourth German citizen is interested in using a shared cargo bike.
