Light Electronic Cargo Vehicles for inspection and maintenance

September 2019

Use of ‘LEVVs’ (Dutch abbreviation for Light Electronic Cargo Vehicles) is on the rise in The Netherlands. This is shown in recent research by Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Fietsdiensten.nl and Loendersloot, as commisioned by Connekt. The number of items that a company transports per working day with LEVVs has increased in recent years, as has the average distance driven per day.

The most popular LEVV is the electric cargo bike. These are mainly used for courier services, but alternative deployments are possible as well. Loendersloot is now using its recently purchased e-cargo bike for the transport of materials for traffic measures, thanks to a subsidy from Gelderland province. The use of Loendersloot’s electric cargo bike has advantages in places that are difficult to access by car.
