Delegates from more than 23 countries are currently taking part in the 12th International Symposium on Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology (HVTT12) in Stockholm, Sweden.
Under the slogan “Setting future standards”, the bi-annual symposium is dedicated to creativity, innovation and design in the trucking world and has attracted more than 130 transport professionals from around the globe to discuss the future of commercial road transport.
“Sweden is the ideal place to hold the conference,” said Paul Nordengen, President of the International Forum for Road Transport Technology. “The country has a pioneering role in finding creative transport solutions, especially in oversized freight movement.”
Over three days, delegates will discuss innovative approaches to high productivity vehicle design such as Australia’s PBS scheme and Sweden’s ETT project, but also debate the issue of road-vehicle interaction as well transport policies and road safety.
Global Trailer will attend the event and report live.
