Outspoken Delivery will be a leadingÂ partner in an EU sponsored initiative to develop and promote the movement of lightÂ goods by bike.
The three year EU project, CYCLE Logistics, running from May 2011 to 2014 aims toÂ achieve a significant reduction in energy use for urban freight transport through finalÂ delivery of light goods by bicycle rather than motorised delivery vans.Â Partners in the Cycle Logistics project include local authorities, private sectorÂ companies, cycling organisations, communication experts and energy agencies fromÂ over eight European countries. The kick-off meeting involving all the project partnersÂ was held in Copenhagen last month (May) and was attended by Rob King, ManagingÂ Director of Outspoken Delivery.
Rob said: “We are thrilled to be part of thisÂ exciting project and look forward to buildingÂ a cargo bike culture in Cambridge andÂ beyond.” Outspoken Delivery will be leadingÂ the ‘Goods Delivery’ application area of theÂ project; developing new and innovativeÂ delivery solutions using the breadth ofÂ experience across Europe to determine bestÂ practise. It is anticipated that Outspoken willÂ rent three additional cargo bikes withÂ electric assistance enabling them to support the expected increased level ofÂ business.
As a leading partner in the EU project, Outspoken Delivery will host a meeting inÂ Spring 2012 which will bring all the partners to Cambridge to discuss progress, shareÂ findings and to plan the next stages of the project. Rob added: “European cities suchÂ as Copenhagen and Amsterdam have well developed bike cultures and cargoÂ delivery solutions and I am looking forward to introducing similar approaches toÂ Cambridge.”
Other aspects of the project include encouraging tradesmen to adopt bicycles as aÂ means of transporting themselves and their equipment to their customers andÂ prompting private individuals to use their bikes for shopping trips by providingÂ appropriate baskets, bags and trailers.
The new Outspoken Delivery cargo bikes are set to become an established featureÂ in the Cambridge streets leaving their motorised competitors behind.
