Wherever you go in emerging markets, there seem to be an affordable way of getting your goods around. In Dar Es Salaam and Nairobi you have the two wheel push cart (Mikokoteni) and in Accra a more modern four wheel version.
South East Asia prefers the three wheel motor-cart version, known for its high noise and air pollution. Not to mention Popeye like arms to steer the thing. In South Asia a three wheel Chinese agriculture machine is responsible for getting the job done, especially in rural areas.
With fuel prices on the rise at the pump (and at the shop selling fuel out of an oil drum) you are likely to see more of these delivery vehicles as trucks fall out of favour. With electric bike sales going though the roof in Vietnam, is the three wheel delivery edition just around the corner?
