In an increasingly globalised and competitive world, the economic, social and environmental demand for freight and public transport in urban areas continues to increase every year.
Meanwhile, energy shortages, pollutant emissions and city congestions are getting worse and worse.
Vehicle manufacturers, operators, cities and legislators must contribute more than ever to the global reflexion on these issues, aiming at developing optimized and efficient vehicles and transport systems solutions to respond to both increasing economic demands and sustainable development issues.
In that context, the Truck & Bus World Forum, Solutrans trade show and the SAE International decided to launch the first edition of the World Transport Week in Lyon from 11th till 16th of May 2009.
The Truck & Bus World Forum (11th-12th) will offer forward looking analysis related to “Scenarii for more efficient transport solutions” addressed by 30 worldwide top executives speakers and over 400 international delegates.
