“At IAA Transportation we want to ask ourselves the question: What does the commercial vehicle industry need so that the Paris climate goals can be achieved? One thing is clear: cargo bikes can make a contribution to CO2 reduction and decarbonization in the last mile in cities. We are therefore very pleased that we can once again offer cargo bikes a central stage with the CABOTY Award,” says Jürgen Mindel, managing director of IAA Transportation at the Association of the Automotive Industry. Last year the award was presented at the IAA Mobility in Munich.

The submitted cargo bike models will be tested on September 19th on the trade fair’s renewed cargo bike course, which simulates city street conditions with various obstacles. A jury made up of specialist journalists, scientists and industry experts judges in the categories “Light Cargobikes”, “Heavy Cargobikes” and “Cargobike Trailer”. The award ceremony takes place in the afternoon.

Exhibitors can also experience their cargo bikes on the renewed course on the days of the trade fair from September 17th to 22nd. Located nearby is the IAA Last Mile Area in Hall 13, which is dedicated to innovations for last-mile logistics with exhibitors and a Speakers Corner with keynotes. Speaking slots can also be booked optionally by Cargobike exhibitors.

5th Bicycle Logistics Conference

The 5th bicycle logistics conference will also be held at the IAA Transportation 2024. The specialist conference for emission-free logistics with cargo bikes and trailers in Germany on September 18th will address topics such as services, infrastructure and economic efficiency as well as the potential for climate protection in order to discuss the continuing transition to emission-free and energy-efficient mobility. Around 200 participants are expected.

“I am pleased that we are consolidating the cooperation that began two years ago. Cargo bikes are increasingly becoming a standard as a commercial vehicle in urban commercial traffic. The strong presence at IAA Transportation expresses this and shows guests a clear option for quickly switching to CO2-neutral, cost-effective vehicles,” says Tom Assmann, Chairman of the Bicycle Logistics Association.
