Transport trade show a sell-out

Bringing together market players from across the heavy and light commercial vehicle industry, this year’s SOLUTRANS trade fair in Lyon, France, will focus on shifting the commercial vehicle industry into one that has net zero emissions.

A tade fair for haulage and urban transport professionals, SOLUTRANS 2023 promises innovation and information, with a heavy focus on sustainability and growing opportunities within that sector.

The event, running from 21-25 November, and promising an array of exhibitions, programs and presentations, will take over 90,000 square metres of exhibition space at Lyon’s Eurexpo building, including an outdoor demonstration area. There will be more than 1,000 exhibitors and brands representing 57 countries.

The program for the event has five major themes it will be focusing on.

Urban deliveries – new solutions from heavy and light commercial vehicle manufacturers will be on display for those interested in alternative delivery models for increasingly restrictive city centres. A ‘cargo bike’ space will be created, including a test track to demonstrate the suitability of the concept.

New energies – as part of SOLUTRANS’ mission, it will offer an overview of all the energies available and their key applications as the industry looks to tackle the challenge of decarbonising transport.

Tyres – in partnership with SPP, the expo will be hosting a ‘Tyre Village’ to inform visitors of the latest in tyre technology and the innovations that can make them last longer and cost less.

Retrofit – showcasing the art of improving what already exists, retrofitting specialists will be on hand to raise awareness about its benefits, as well as teaching how to determine its suitability.

Automated vehicles – the expo will be highlighting the technologies that will lead to self-driving heavy commercial vehicles in the future. Advanced driver assistance, which is ever developing, will be part of the line-up.

Organisers are calling the SOLUTRANS event the largest gathering of heavy goods vehicles in Europe and, as the only event of its kind in the sector, will welcome the biggest names in trailer and semi-trailer manufacturing in the world.
