On 13/11/2019 twelve individuals and three companies were awarded the Baden-Württemberg State Business Medal at a ceremony at the New Palace in Stuttgart. Heinzmann GmbH & Co. KG was one of the companies honoured.
Two key factors are critical when using mobile equipment: on the one hand, the available power must be enough for the task, and on the other hand the on-board energy supply must be sufficiently dimensioned for the job to be performed and it must be possible to “top it up” quickly. In the case of autonomous electric mobility with a power supply based on batteries, this is a demanding task. Durable, maintenance-free drives specially designed for battery-powered mobile drive solutions, such as off-road motorbikes or smooth running road sweepers, represent a challenge for engineers.
HEINZMANN and cooperation partners take cargo bikes to a new level.
In urban environments, small and manoeuvrable vehicles are in their element. For example, cargo bikes get around much faster to deliver packages than small vans. But on some routes, it can be a Sisyphean task with muscle power alone. Thanks to electric support, e-bike workhorses - some with over 300 kg total permitted weight - are bringing new impetus to the distribution industry.
Drive specialist HEINZMANN presents at the Cargo Bike Festival in Groningen at the HEINZMANN / GreenPack Stand 2 latest e-drive solutions for cargo bike applications. With each of the partners - GreenPack (battery specialist) and PINION (gearbox specialist) - cooperation projects have been realized to develop new modular and ambitious heavy duty e-cargo solutions applicable for all electric vehicle concepts.
Transport policy in Germany is facing a massive challenge: Ensuring the mobility of people and transportation of goods for the future while simultaneously reducing emissions that are harmful to the climate and the environment. In short: Mobility and transportation need to be re-imagined and made much more sustainable. Green Party representatives at state and local government level have always felt a particular commitment to addressing this key future issue.
Transport logistics over the “last mile” in major urban centres is changing. Thanks to the huge advances in technical development, instead of vehicles with traditional diesel engines we are increasingly seeing two and three-wheeled vehicles with electric drives being used.
