Vans, buses and trucks – commercial vehicles are a major part of our lives. Today we can choose from an extensive range of goods worldwide that are delivered right to our doors. This would not be possible without freight transport and logistics.
They carry over 70 percent of transported goods and therefore form the backbone of transport and the economy. They are also service providers and chauffeurs. They dispose of our waste, help us to move house, assist the rescue services, take our children to school and drive us to work. So commercial vehicles actually keep our everyday lives “on the go.”
The IAA Commercial Vehicles in 2020 will address the question of what the future of commercial vehicles will be like. The IAA takes place in Hannover and is the world’s leading trade show for transport, logistics and mobility. And in fact the whole commercial vehicle sector is on a path of innovation. As in many other branches of industry, the particularly important topics here are automation and connectivity, safety and security, environmental protection, electric mobility and new logistics and traffic concepts for the towns of the future. It offers a unique cross section of the entire value chain in the industry, from vehicles to transport and logistics, and from manufacturers to the many medium-sized suppliers.
After the IAA comes the IAA. In 2020 exhibitors and visitors will meet again in Hannover for the 68th IAA Commercial Vehicles (Sept. 24 to Sept. 30, 2020).
The IAA Conference is europe’s most important dialog and networking platform on the future of the transport sector. The IAA Conference 2019 provided answers on tomorrow's mobility, with more than 200 top-class speakers discussing in exciting keynotes and debates topics such as artificial intelligence, alternative drives, solutions for climate change, smart cities and the sharing economy .
All information about the IAA Conference 2020 and the programme will be available on iaa.de soon.
