Using an eCargo bike for your deliveries or logistics
How many deliveries are made daily?
How many of these are in range of an eBike?
How many of these could be made using an eBike given that the practical range is 5-7Km and the volume of the cargo hold is .25m3. (note max weight is 60kg in the load area). Please check full bike spec here.
If you need a vehicle to carry tools or materials as part of your business, could you use an eCargo bike to carry them instead?
