Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) – What can climate-friendly goods transport look like in large cities? The Radlogistik Verband Deutschland is investigating this question at a conference in Frankfurt today. Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main (VGF) wants to present a sustainable option, compensate containers from a cargo bike manufacturer that are loaded and transported on a tram.
The VGF system, the idea of a freight tram, can also be used for internal company projects. The tram is supposed to drive to workshops all over the city and to believe with post or required spare parts.
The VGF is already planning a similar project in 2018. The company tested a climate-friendly delivery method in cooperation with the city of Frankfurt and a parcel delivery company. For this purpose, parcels were first transported by logistics tram and then delivered by cargo bike. So not only the environment but also traffic should be relieved.
