Munich, Germany - 30. März 2023

IAA MOBILITY 2023, the leading platform for mobility, sustainability and tech, announced today that it will host the awards ceremony for HUSS-VERLAG and LOGISTRA magazine’s International Cargobike of the Year (CABOTY). For the fourth time, “CABOTY” has already established itself on the market as an important platform for rewarding innovation in the young but booming cargo bike industry. 

IAA MOBILITY 2023 To Host International Cargo Bike Awards

"Many experts believe that e-cargo bikes have great potential, not only for private but also for commercial use. Combined in the right way they can be a game changer in urban logistics: More shipments with less emissions. Right from the start, we wanted to take account of this trend, which is important for climate protection and a change in the transport sector, with accompanying reporting in our LOGISTRA magazine and with our award, and thus honour the innovative spirit of the manufacturers," explains Rainer Langhammer, Managing Director of HUSS-VERLAG. 

A jury of experienced logistics professionals will examine the numerous innovations of the CABOTYcandidates and filter out the most suitable, technically innovative and most economical models for commercial use in the categories "Light Cargobikes", "Heavy Cargobikes" and "Cargobike Trailers". These will then be honoured at a special awards ceremony at IAA MOBILITY 2023. 

"We are very pleased to offer a stage for the CABOTY Award this year at IAA MOBILITY. By presenting the award, we are once again making it clear that IAA MOBILITY 2023 is an international platform for all mobility concepts," says Jürgen Mindel, VDA Managing Director for IAA MOBILITY.
