E-cargo bikes deliver goods quickly and inexpensively

Across many major European cities, more and more companies are using E-cargo bikes to deliver their goods on time quickly, inexpensively, and in a way that’s good for the environment. These bicycles are suited for transporting loads quickly and inexpensively across short and medium distances without producing any exhaust emissions. In addition, switching to a bicycle promotes health. Besides environmental aspects, cargo bikes offer practical advantages for urban deliveries: they are more agile in these areas and easier to park.

Local transportation applications include, for instance, pizza delivery services and trade work in urban areas. Mailmen working for Deutsche Post use E-cargo bikes to deliver packages. They're also used by small companies. In Denmark, cargo bikes are commonly used by families to transport children, dogs, and do daily shopping.

High performance for specialised bikes
Transporting loads that are much larger or heavier than those usually moved on two wheels places unique demands on bicycles and on individual components. This is especially true of batteries. If classic in-bike installation isn’t required, BMZ's Cargo Battery is able to offer high capacities of over 1.5KW. BMZ ensures a stable mount using an aluminum continuous cast C-Profile developed in-house. A Twin Core (2 batteries in parallel) is available using a switch. The battery has a breathable housing and an intelligent charger for various configurations with 7S-14S.

UART and CAN protocols are available. The ergonomic housing and handle have been improved. The Cargo Battery also has an improved locking mechanism, and is downwardly compatible with previous Cargo Batteries.

With BMZ Drive Systems, BMZ offers a system solution combining a display and motor with a lithium-ion battery and charger adapted for E-bikes. BMZ Drive Systems has been installed in major international bicycle brands for many years. In addition, BMZ also offers service and support.
