The International Cargo Bike Festival 2014 of last April was very succesfull. The decision to make it a two-days-event worked out very well. The Cycle Logistics Conference on the Saturday had twice as many particpants - 230 - as we expected beforehand. It was a international group of people originating from 24 different countries. At the end of the Conference the official kick-off of the European Cycle Logistics Federation was launched.
