Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition

A team of four students from L’École de design Nantes Atlantique’s Studio Montréal have won the 2nd prize for their "HAUL" cargo bike. Paul Poirier, Bastien Adam, Malo Sahores, and Clément Moinardeau will all share the $4,000 scholarship award. Their HAUL project focused on helping the City of Montreal to reduce traffic congestion and pollution. The team developed a cargo bike with modular crates to optimize the work of delivery people “for the last kilometer delivery”. The use of extruded aluminum forms the base of the bike and boxes filled with parcels rest on the base. The system allows quick loading and unloading from small parcels to larger packages. "The extrusion designs facilitate easy handling of various sized crates and packages,” said competition judge Joe Benedyk. “And, by replacing delivery trucks, the design offers a solution to pollution.”
