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. And it is the commercial vehicles that cover that last mile. 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 67th IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover from September 20 to 27, 2018, will address the question of what the future of commercial vehicles will be like. 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.
