Tern Bicycles’ North American distributor and subsidiary, Stile Products, has announced a new partnership with Carla Cargo Engineering.
Stile will distribute Carla Cargo’s heavy-duty cargo trailers to commercial customers looking for clean delivery options.
“We’re thrilled to see more and more companies adopting a more sustainable form of transportation,” said Carla Cargo Founder Markus Bergmann. “This partnership with Stile will allow us to reach new goals in the US, Canada and Mexico. Plus, Tern’s GSD e-Bike is an ideal towing vehicle with its powerful acceleration and exceptionally stiff frame.”
Carla Cargo’s trailers can haul heavy loads of up to 150 kg when attached to a bike. Combined with Tern’s GSD, the trailer provides businesses with an emission-free alternative to carry loads, and is a good fit for inner city traffic due to its small, nimble size combined with cargo carrying capacity. Tern has designed a dedicated hitch to attach the GSD to the trailers.
The trailer can also be disconnected from the GSD and used manually for deliveries at larger complexes, carrying up to 200 kg in Hand Truck mode.
With the GSD-Carla Cargo combination already in use by businesses across Europe, the new partnership between Carla and Stile will expand the use of greener mobility solutions in North America. Carla Cargo trailers can already be seen in New York, with bike couriers delivering groceries across the cities in the place of vans.
Steve Boyd, General Manager for Tern North America, said: “When we look at any big American cit and the sheer amount of delivery vans in the busiest districts, it’s easy to see why we need more sustainable solutions. We as consumers are probably not going to order less stuff just to alleviate traffic, but businesses can choose a greener delivery alternative that benefits everyone.”
Stile has stock of Carla Cargo trailers now, and businesses and dealers interested in Carla Cargo in the US can find out more here.
