Great opportunity for small vehicles
In urban areas the issue of micro-mobility is becoming increasingly important. Especially for the first and last mile, the small, mostly electrically driven vehicles such as cargo bikes, e-scooters and e-scooters are increasingly being used. In fact, load wheels can now take even 50 percent of all commercial transportation. Accordingly, should the transport area in particular in cities and urban regions redistributed. However, free and unhindered ride had the visitors on the Micro Mobility course. Or e-scooters, e-scooters and cargo-bikes have been thoroughly tested.
