Technology is very much a theme this week, with innovations across all sectors of the industry showing just how advanced the CV Sector really is.
From features that enable refrigeration systems to operate in harmony with stop-start systems, to advanced telematics that have improved operator compliance by a significant margin, the aftermarket is thriving.
We have a new prototype bus that reduces urban emissions even further, and two innovative HGV concepts that will make their debut at the IAA Show in Hannover, and point the way towards a fully autonomous future.
We also welcome a new player into the van market, which continues to thrive as operators further embrace the downsizing trend.
Together, these developments show just how much the HGV and LCV sectors are clear leaders, delivering revolution and foresight that feeds down into other areas of the automotive sector. The transport industry isn’t just about delivering the goods to your door, but also delivering them to the worlds of automotive innovation and future technology. We should take pride in that.
