IRU gears up to define Commercial Vehicles of the Future

Jan 03, 2016
The International Road Transport Union (IRU) has begun its work to define the commercial vehicles that will operate on the infrastructure of the future
The initiative brings together a wide range of partners to ensure efficiency gains across the transport chain, a reduction of CO2 emissions and increased safety in road transport.  
 
IRU’s working partners include European Commission and European parliament representatives from across the political spectrum, as well as leading non-governmental organisations from the environmental and road safety fields, transport industry stakeholders, vehicle manufacturers, transport technology specialists, academics and representatives from Europe’s major cities. 
 
Marc Billiet, leading the IRU’s work said, “This is an exciting initiative that will chart the road ahead for the road transport industry. It will help define the sort of vehicles and infrastructure we want to see in 2030 and 2050. The world of 2050 will be a very different place from today as global trends such as urbanisation, digitalisation, e-commerce, increased electrification and e-mobility impact our lives.” 
 
The initial meeting of partners, which took place in Brussels set out the terms of reference, working methodologies, roles and expected contributions.
