“Commercial vehicles are an integral part of our everyday lives and for a powerful economy,” explains VDA President Hildegard Müller at the opening. “The IAA TRANSPORTATION shows the innovative and sustainable solutions of the industry, which is already making an enormous contribution to climate protection and gives interesting prospects for the future of transport and logistics.”

 

Müller further explains: “It is also important for all of us that the industry can finally meet again in person in view of the many challenges. We had to cancel the last IAA with a heavy heart due to the pandemic. The many current geopolitical and economic developments and challenges are also challenging the international commercial vehicle markets. And all this is happening in the midst of the greatest transformation, which still continues to drive the industry with great force with innovations and investments.”

 

“With our new concept for IAA TRANSPORTATION, we are breaking new ground and creating a holistic approach this year. The aim and leitmotif is to be the first international platform in the transport sector to focus on the technological transformation of all transport and logistics towards emission-free mobility of people and goods. We have deliberately created an open platform for all those involved in transport, which offers plenty of space for new players and perspectives.

 

And we are very pleased about the encouragement: 1,402 exhibitors from 42 countries, almost two thirds of the exhibitors come from abroad. The entire range of the industry has been gathered: In addition to manufacturers and suppliers of commercial vehicles, buses of all kinds, companies from the trailers and superstructure sectors, infrastructure providers and companies in the tech industry will also play an important role. Visitors to the IAA can experience how innovative, how digital the industry is – and try it out for themselves,” says Müller.

 

Part of the redesign of the IAA TRANSPORTATION is to make the latest innovations and developments from the fields of transport and logistics tangible on site. As part of the IAA EXPERIENCES, different formats have been developed that focus more on experiencing, trying out and interacting at IAA TRANSPORTATION for visitors.

 

“At the IAA Test Drives, commercial vehicles with climate-friendly drives can be tested. The Plug & Play Campus demonstrates the charging of the vehicles, including the possibility of refueling hydrogen. On the Last Mile Area, transport, logistics and delivery solutions of the future can be observed in action. Cargo bikes can be tested under real conditions on the IAA Cargobike course,” says VDA President Hildegard Müller.
