Through the online information portal www.intelligent-urbanization.com and
the bundling of specific formats at existing tradeshow events, it is easy to get detailed
information about the urbanization topic.
Urban mobility is one of the main topics of ISPO BIKE. Due to changed mobility
requirements in the urban space and technical advancements, especially with E-bikes
and pedelecs, a fundamental shift in the recognition of the bicycle is happening. More
and more people see the bicycle as the most efficient and attractive ways of moving
forward especially for short or mid-range distances. Even transport companies are
finding bicycles viable means of providing service – primarily for the “last mile”.
A survey by the University of Westminster (GB) shows that freight and parcel delivery
in urban areas is not only faster, but also more efficient: trip length per parcel is reduced
by 54% and CO2 emissions by even 62%. In addition electric transport reduces air
pollution and disturbances from noise and traffic downtown.
In cooperation with “Cyclelogistics” – a EU supported project – ISPO Bike showcases
pioneering products and services in the area of cargo bikes during the transport logistic
tradeshow, on the stand A5.330. Participating companies include the ISPO
BRANDNEW winners Urban Arrow, Bici Capace and gobaX as well as urban –e. On the
other hand information about actual (pilot) projects of companies as DHL, IKEA and
many other European examples can be obtained at the presentation of Cyclelogistics.
“25 % of all urban freight trips could be shifted from motorized vehicles towards bicycles
and/or cargo bicycles, is the starting point of the EU co-financed program
“Cyclelogistics”. By participating in the Trade Fair of IPSO Logistics , the European
project Cyclelogistics wants to use the offered platform to encourage companies
working in the logistics sector to include cargo bikes in their vehicle fleet as an essential
tool for their last mile delivery in urban areas.”
