On the 20th and 21st of March 2017, during the European Cycle Logistics Conference in Vienna, Urban Arrow launched an all new transporter; a combination of bicycle- and automobiletechnology.

The name of the new model cargo bike is the “Tender”. The Tender is specifically meant for transport companies, such as post order, courier and delivery services. It’s a pedal electric assisted three wheel Cargo bike, available in various sizes. The Tender 1500 has a load capacity of 1500 liter and can carry up to 350 kg. Thanks to the powerful electric assist it rides astonishingly light given its proportions, even with heavy loads. The bike is allowed on the road as well as the bike paths. With the Tender you’ll avoid the traffic jams and will just park in front of your destination. And all of this with zero emission and almost silent. That is good for the owners image and even better for the planet.

We face sickening full cities all over the globe. The number of inhabitants increase and so does traffic and tourism. For the government it’s very challenging to guide all the traffic and run their cities at a healthy and safe level. With the Tender, Urban Arrow aims at the vast growing demand of zero emission vehicles and offers a green alternative for all the vans and smaller trucks.

Walther Ploos van Amstel, Lector City logistics at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, on this matter: “In the city logistics, we see a growing amount of small sending’s and more just-in-time deliveries, which leads to more delivery traffic. Last year 25% more vans were sold in the Netherlands. People love the cities, they want to live there, enjoy and visit. The image of all these vans just does not fit in that. Our research proved that a good third of all these vans could be replaced by a cargo bike.”
