TruckTrike , a company that makes a human powered cargo transport vehicle was approached by global logistics leader UPS to provide a bicycle based delivery vehicle. Truck Trike already makes an electric assist trike capable of moving 600 lbs and now they needed a proposal to excite UPS to get the contract.Truck Trike came to FUSE with this problem. With a very short deadline FUSE developed an industrial design for a lightweight minimal canopy that would meet a large cargo box complete with interior illuminating transparent roof. We rendered the model in UPS brown with the requisite graphics to help UPS imagine this greener future.
We are happy to report the proposal was successful and UPS is currently trialing modified Truck Trikes in Portland , Oregon.
