    LEVA-EU member Carla Cargo’s trailer was identified as a particularly logistically capable winner, alongside cargobikes from Vowag and Chike e-Cargo.

    The second Cargobike of the Year Awards were recently presented by HUSS-VERLAG at the 2nd National Bike Logistics Conference in Frankfurt am Main. The industry has seen a major surge over the last two years, particularly in professionalization and innovation, with a flood of registrations for this year’s awards. Johannes Reichel, Ceremony Chairman, noted in particular the increasing focus within the cargobike industry, with providers homing in on either the B2B or B2C market; after all, “there is simply no such thing as [one] cargobike for everything”.

    Entered designs were subject to extensive tests throughout the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences campus, winning vehicles were distinguished by the fact that they took a big step forward and covered a wide range of applications. LEVA-EU member Carla Cargo took home the award for Best Cargo Bike Trailer, with the jury emphasising the trailer’s enormous amount of freight potential with little effort at a relatively low price.

    Congratulations Carla Cargo!

    LEVA-EU member Carla Cargo is has announced a new partnership with Stile Products, the North American distributor and subsidiary of urban mobility specialist Tern. Stile will distribute Carla Cargo’s heavy-duty cargo trailers to commercial customers looking for clean delivery options.

    We’re thrilled to see more and more companies adopting a more sustainable form of transportation,” stated Carla Cargo Founder Markus Bergmann. “This partnership with Stile will allow us to reach new goals in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

    Carla Cargo trailers can haul loads of up to 150 kg when attached to an (e)bike. The combination of (e)bike + electric trailer provides businesses with an emission-free alternative to carry loads, and is ideal for inner city traffic. It is small and nimble enough to weave through congested areas, but still able to carry an impressive volume of cargo. The Carla Cargo trailer can also be disconnected from and used manually for deliveries at larger complexes, carrying up to 200 kg in the so-called hand truck mode.

    Carla Cargo trailers can already be seen in New York, with bike couriers delivering groceries across the city. By ditching the van, companies can meet the growing home delivery demand in their market, fulfil orders more quickly and cost-effectively, and reduce traffic, noise, and emissions at the same time.

    2019 was a successful and demanding year for LEVA-EU member Carla Cargo. Even faster than expected they had to scale up production to keep up with the growing demand for their trailers. Another major result is the cooperation with Amazon in New York City. Several hundreds of their cargo trailers, called Carla’s, are now being used by an organic supermarket to supply citizens of New York with organic food.

    The Carla’s will not only deliver food but are part of a bigger movement within the big Apple. The city council wants to reduce the numbers of delivery trucks, because of congestion and pollution, especially in densely populated areas such as Manhattan. Cargo bikes and trailers are smaller in size and have a lower environmental impact than trucks. Find out more about the role of Carla Cargo’s trailers in New York in an article of the New York Times
