About us

About us

Our goal is to make cargo bikes useful for businesses. Every cargo bike used commercially should have a setup by Velofracht on top.

We plan and build setups and accessories as well as special solutions for cargo bike manufacturers as well as other customers from all trades.

We run our own workshop for metal, wood and plastic processing in the MotionLab in Berlin. We also have a warehouse for final assembly and distribution in Freiburg im Breisgau.
