E-mobility seems to be the main topic of the commercial vehicle industry these days – but it is not the only point of attention. The changes in the market have gone beyond pure vehicle technology and affect the entire mobility and logistics environment.

The IAA Transportation, which will take place in Hanover from 20 to 25 September 2022 under the auspices of the Verband der Automobilindustrie (Association of the Automotive Industry – VDA), will also take these changes into account. Not only the title but also the concept is quite different from the previous events under the name IAA Nutzfahrzeuge (Commercial Vehicles) – subsequently the focus is no longer primarily on the exhibition of the latest vehicle models of the manufacturers, but on solutions for a holistic approach to logistics and mobility in all its forms. One of the thematic focus days will be entirely devoted to urban mobility.

A first taste of what awaits guests in Hanover was offered by the IAA’s international press workshop, which took place in Frankfurt/Main at the beginning of the week.

In addition to the public presentation of the relaunched event concept, CEOs and top managers of established logistics and transport companies as well as interesting newcomers – including Daimler Truck, FAUN, IVECO Magirus, Krone, Traton, MAN, Neste, Quantron, RYTLE and Schmitz Cargobull – took the opportunity to share their visions and ambitions for the future of passenger and freight transport in on-site contributions and to look ahead to central themes and highlights of the upcoming IAA TRANSPORTATION. Press representatives were also able to gain their first practical impressions on site as part of the IAA Experience, for which the manufacturers Daimler Truck and FAUN presented some of their promising new developments in anticipation of the IAA TRANSPORTATION with the eActros truck, the eCitaro city bus and the Bluepower hydrogen-powered municipal vehicle.
