Let's Gro Digital & The Cargo Bike Talks

23 June 2020 - Published by Deirdre Buist
You see them everywhere at moment. Are cargo bikes taking over the world? We hope so, and this is why… Cargo bikes are emission-free, environmentally friendly and low-noise vehicles. And they’re cool!




Surflogh continue it's collaboration with the Let's Gro urban festival in the City of Groningen. Everything is happening online this year so Let's Gro is going digital too. And we want to highlight one happening in particular; The Cargo Bike Talks.


In the first ever Cargo Bike Talks, Jos Sluijsmans – Director of the International Cargo Bike Festival -  will lead discussions on  the future and potential for cargo bike logistics with representatives from three different cargo bike companies  from three  European cities  

Ecokoeriers in Mechelen, Zedify in Edinburgh and Go Fast in Groningen have one thing in common: they’re all taking part in Surflogh.  Their involvement in the project helps to investigate and trial the feasibility of efficient, eco-friendly cargo distribution in urban areas, with a view to clearing congestion and making our cities more liveable.

The panel will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and how it has effected their businesses. Discussions will also revolve about how cargo bikes can make effective and economical logistics concepts possible, especially in the growing area of small consignments such as parcels.

Hop on and join the ride! This online Let's Gro event will take place on 29th June at 20.00 hrs (CET)
