First ever Cargobikathon!

Venue: Online
Stronghouse partners at the City of Groningen are organizing a hackathon - or more accurately a ‘Cargobikathon’ from 9th – 18th February 2021. To find solutions and help facilitate a sustainable logistics transition by 2025, five teams of students from the region will develop creative solutions for actual cases regarding the role of the cargo-bike in inner city logistics.

Some pending questions:

  • How do we promote the use of cargobikes in the city centre of the future?

  • Can cargobikes be communally used by businesses (like the smart share e-scooters)?

  • What are suitable locations for share points?

  • Where can we create freight hubs to transfer goods from trucks to cargo-bikes?

  • How do we ensure our inner city streets don’t become clogged with parked cargo-bikes?


The Cargobikathon is all about developing good solutions for a logistics issue in the city. Results can be physical, digital, conceptual and/or financial.
