BicyLift provides an alternative to the tail lift and pallet jack combination for single pallet delivery flows to recipients in dense urban zones. Combining the features of a handling tool and delivery vehicle, BicyLift is a solution that is particularly well suited to last mile logistics.

It is already used in several French cities by companies specialising in low carbon last mile logistics, who sub-contract from major order placers such as DB Schenker, Dachser, STG, etc.The BicyLift is designed to work with standard-sized Euro pallets measuring 120 x 80 cm, as well as with an “urban container,” and it essentially combines a pallet jack (or forklift) and a delivery vehicle into a single conveyance.
The device can be attached to or removed from a bicycle “with a single movement, using a single hand,” and the 3-position drawbar allows the BicyLift to be adjusted to pull behind a bike, moved by hand, or parked.
The flexibility of BicyLift means it can be used equally well attached to a bike and manually as a pallet jack, to get as close as possible to the delivery point.You can also deliver from an urban logistics area to a shopping centre without transloading or any need for an additional handling tool.
