Transport and Infrastructure
Intermediate Means of Transport or IMTs are transport devices that come between walking and conventional motor vehicles and help people to move loads or use animals more effectively for load carrying. These technologies include cycle trailers, improved bicycles for load carrying, ox and donkey carts, handcarts, wheelbarrows, improved panniers for animals and other types of animal carts.
