What are opportunities and challenges when we discuss about standards and regulations for cargo bikes? In this workshop we’ll get some guidance with Siegfried Neuberger, CEO German Bicycle Industry Association (ZIV) and chairman of the European standardisation committee for bicycles and Arne Behrensen, cargobike.jetzt, German blogger and consultant.
In Germany a DIN standard for cargo bikes will come into effect soon. A European EN standard is planned. Meanwhile, heavy load cargo bikes play an increasing role in sustainable urban logistics and challenge the existing EU limits for electric assist of bicycles. The workshop will discuss recent developments and how the cargo bike industry could shape standards and regulations.
