Paris: Cargo Bicycle Delivery Network

La Petite Reine (little queen) is a French nickname for bicycle. It’s also the name of the small company that operates a fleet of over 60 cargocycles for various client companies such as express delivery service DHL.  Everyday these cargo bicycles and tricycles make their way through congested parts of Paris to deliver parcels with an efficiency that Fedex would be proud of.

Besides the suped up messenger services. La Petite Reine also sells and rents these cargo tricycles to the public.

    Hi Loh Han Chye,

    You should be able to source a good cargo tricycle from China for under $250/tricycle. Shipping from China to Singapore in a partial container is probably going to run you between $50/bicycle. Not sure what the taxes are in Singapore.

    Send me an email if you have any more questions. info@cargocycling.org

    Cheers,
    John

    Same question as HZ, can I find these cargo bikes in the US? And if not, is it possible to buy a couple from you and have them shipped? What do you estimate the cost would be for bikes and shipping to the LA area and how would I arrange this? Thanks!
