The Third European Cycle Logistics Federation Conference

“Decarbonizing deliveries in urban areas – how cargo bikes & trikes are being used to solve the last mile problem”

The Third Conference of the European Cycle Logistics Federation takes place this year in Donostia – San Sebastián and explores the potential for deliveries using cargo bikes & trikes.

From 15 until 17 October 2015 cycle couriers, municipalities, logistics companies and other experts from all over Europe gather in Donostia – San Sebastián in northern Spain, to discuss how to decarbonize deliveries in urban areas, and how to approach the last mile problem.

At a time when more and more European cities struggle with traffic congestion, cycle logistics turns out to be a reliable alternative to motorized vehicles for delivering goods in urban areas. Not only is this an environment-friendly solution; it is also cost effective, fast and has a flexible delivery capacity.

Cycle couriers all over Europe have decided to create a network to share experience: the European Cycle Logistics Federation – or ECLF for short. The 2015 Conference takes place in the heart of the Basque Country. The previous ECLF Conferences were held in Cambridge, UK (2012) and Nijmegen, Netherlands (2014).

In 2016, Donostia – San Sebastián will be the cultural capital of Europe. The European Cycle Logistics Conference will be an excellent warm-up event for the coming year.

The Conference has three themed days: on Thursday 15th October, you are invited to discuss how to decarbonize deliveries in urban areas; Friday 16th October is focused on finding different approaches to the last mile problem; and Saturday 17th October will be a gathering of cycle logistics companies from all over Spain.

On the second day of the Conference dedicated to approaches to the last mile problem, Mr. Leon from PRO-E-BIKE partner ITENE, will present project experiances with presentation titled “Electric assist cargo bikes and trikes: boy’s toys of business tools?”.

The Conference will be accompanied by an exhibition: a unique opportunity for suppliers of cargo bikes, accessories, devices and services to present their companies and make interesting contacts.
