FOODLOGICA lives to elevate the virtuous cycle of food in the urban ecosystem by integrating convenient, zero-emission transport to local businesses. To do so, we provide a logistical service that supports local, quality food producers and businesses, guaranteeing fresh delivery for optimal sale and consumption. We continue pushing to blend traditional, innovative and cultural behaviors into urban development.
As FOODLOGICA seeks to develop new sustainable standards for urban food consumption, the selection of our clients is of foremost importance. FOODLOGICA selects its business partners primarily on their commitment to fulfill sustainable standards, quality of produce, network and location.

The electric cargo bike is available to delivery food from location A to B or multiple locations in Amsterdam. Prices are built together with our clients, and based on load capacity and distance covered. We are flexible, easily tailoring services to meet your needs in a fashion that is convenient, fast and clean – from working with local producers, cafés, chefs, catering businesses and restaurants to warehouse loading and delivery.
EVENT & MARKET SUPPORT
Through our tailored delivery services, we offer a clean, reliable option for you to get what you need to your event or market.
Traveling throughout the city, FOODLOGICA e‑trike cargo boxes provide prime advertising space. On our e‑trike, your sustainably focused business gains visibility and recognition for its practices and local partnership. To suit your needs, we offer optional advertisement packages. Greater advertising opportunities are available by participating in FOODLOGICA’s growing on and off-line community. Review our prices here
To further increase the low-impact nature of FOODLOGICA we have devised a system of charging the bikes off-grid using solar power. Our FOODLOGICA container is a self-sufficient charging station which can be relocated or replicated in a sustainable manner as the business grows.
FOODLOGICA has worked with key partners to provide this system. Our e‑trikes are produced in Germany by Radkutsche’s youthful team of highly experienced and enthusiastic, sustainability focused electric cargo bike creators. For the cargo box itself, Netherlands local Paul Beuk of Beuk Kunst and Konstructie worked with us from concept to product to build our custom cargo hold. Last but not least, Van Dyck Solar expertly retrofitted our shipping container with solar power.
For a cost effective way to promote your brand as a client of FOODLOGICA across Amsterdam we offer advertising opportunities on our e-trikes which will be seen around the city. Review our prices here.
Prices starting from 5.50 EURO!
Our pricing system is formulated around different needs and services. Pricing is dependent on deliveries within three different zones listed by postcode (shown on map) and which type of business you are involved in.
As an additional service we offer advertising opportunities to promote your sustainable brand on our e-trikes. Review our prices here.
We offer deliveries up to and including 100 km. Our delivery riders can handle multiple drop‑offs and pick‑ups and plan their routes in order to be as cost-efficient as possible for our customers.
Our e‑trikes are each capable of transporting up to 300 kg (driver included). Loads over this are made by multiple journeys or more than one vehicle. Heavy packages should ideally be split down to facilitate easy loading and unloading by the delivery rider
The internal dimensions of our e‑trikes measure 120cm in length, 80cm in width and 140 cm in height. These measurements represent the maximum package size we can carry in any individual dimension.
Transportation can be arranged to and from addresses with postal codes beginning:
1011 to 1025, 1031 to 1035,
1051 to 1059, 1071 to 1079
& 1091 to 1098
FOODLOGICA is CITIES’ first registered commercial activity. CITIES Foundation is based in The Netherlands, working on urban analysis, research, communication and community-based project development. FOODLOGICA is a spin-off of CITIES’ Farming the City project, three-years and running in 2014, which serves as a global platform promoting sustainable and local food consumption, production, transportation and processing.
After initial research proved the sustainability and profitability of FOODLOGICA, it is now in a lean start-up phase. Starting June 2014, we are prototyping the business using our e‑trikes and a small team of people managing project development. During this process, we are searching for financers to develop organically as the business grows.
