More and more of the world’s population is concentrated in cities. But it’s not always easy or safe for residents to move goods around densely populated neighborhoods. Existing solutions are hard to coordinate and expensive, and they release large amounts of CO2.
A mechanical engineer with a background in business, Natalia Tomiyama co-founded NÜWIEL to develop electric mobility solutions. Currently based in Germany, the company’s innovative electric trailer allows individuals to easily move heavy loads, emissions-free; thanks to the patented sensor technology and electric drive that mirror the movements of the person guiding it, a pedestrian or bicyclist using the eTrailer can tow 670 pounds with no effort. Designed to navigate narrow streets and glide over bumpy terrain, NÜWIEL’s tech is already helping shoppers at IKEAs in German cities get furniture home for free, and have replaced delivery trucks for both UPS and Belgian Post.
