Auto truck aims to help phasing out conventionally fueled vehicles and increase the share of electric vehicles (2-,3- and 4-wheelers) in the total volume of individual motorized transport in cities to at least 30% by 2030. Auto truck is an active company that aims to track international action in the area of electric mobility and initiates local actions. Auto truck delivers tools and guidelines, generates synergies between e-mobility programmes and supports local implementation actions in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. We have introducing electric handcarts to slowly replace the manual handcarts in order to increase the efficiency in cargo services by small business which requires less labour and provide better services. The Government of Kenya has identified the importance of the use of handcarts by the informal sectors for the movement of goods by small scale businesses, mainly women and citizens with the poor economic state. National Youth Service has partnered with Auto Truck E.A Ltd to support, develop and mass produce electric handcarts as a local solution to the menace created by the conventional manual handcarts.
