« The Little Queen » (« La Petite Reine ») is an urban bicycle goods delivery service. The company collects and delivers the parcels twice a day in city centres which are often ill-suited to the usual delivery vehicles. The company now operates in 4 cities in France (Bordeaux, Dijon, Paris et Rouen) in partnership with private companies or local authorities. The 53 « cargocycles » in use transport 700 000 parcels a year on average. This clean and silent technique helps reduce rush-hour congestion in city centres and thus reduces CO2 emissions.
