The integrated solution for "last mile logistics" With the rickshaw, a delivery of goods weighing up to 210 kilograms can be delivered and received quickly, flexibly and around the clock.

The young Bernese company "Rickshaw Taxi Schweiz AG" is developing electric vehicles for the "last mile" in city centres. Together with the Swiss Battery Technology Center from SIPBB , they are working on the further development of a battery and overall system for the modular heavy-duty wheel Rikscha RV1.

In addition to rickshaws for passenger transport, Rickshaw Taxi Switzerland AG offers an ecological and efficient logistics solution. The transport system is already in use in Swiss city centres such as Basel, Bern and Zurich. An electric rickshaw is a three-wheeled vehicle with a maximum power of 2 kilowatts. It has a total weight of 450 kilograms and a load volume of 1.7 cubic metres. Thanks to its shape and flexibility, this vehicle is perfectly suited to be used in the city as a solution for the "last mile". With the newly developed change box system, deliveries as well as advertising are delivered directly to the most sought-after contact points in the middle of the city. A rickshaw transports goods up to 210 kilograms, emission-free and energy-efficient to the customer.

The Switzerland Innovation Park Biel / Bienne (SIPBB) shares its knowledge in the field of battery technologies and digitalisation. In the technical area, the engineering team, under the project management of Christian Ochsenbein, supports Rikscha Taxi AG in product design, construction, electronics and programming.

In collaboration with the Swiss Battery Technology Center (SBTC) from SIPBB , work is being carried out on optimising the transmission and developing and building the electronics. Within the framework of an "Innocheck", a concept was jointly developed which describes the further development for a more efficient, electric, smart and digital "Urban Last Mile Delivery" vehicle. With the various interface solutions for intelligent transport containers, the basis for a fully digital vehicle could be laid. In further steps, it will be mapped in the cloud as a "digital twin".

By renewing the existing heavy-duty wheel Rikscha RV1, the requirements of customers and partners can be better met.
