Meeting of experts at the 2nd DEKRA Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference

At the 2nd DEKRA Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference in Berlin, experts representing vehicle and system manufacturers, politics and the transport and logistics sector will discuss vehicle efficiency, conventional and alternative drive technologies, as well as telematics applications.

The rapid digitalization of the transport and logistics industry, as well as the growing need for low- and zero-emission drive technology will permanently transform the commercial vehicle industry. New regulatory frameworks for conventional and automated commercial vehicles will also play their part in this transformation. No longer will just drive technology dictate how efficiently and environmentally friendly a truck is able to transport goods from A to B. Data, the interpretation and networking thereof is playing an increasingly important role in determining the efficiency of a given transport solution.

Top-caliber speakers

The 2nd DEKRA Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference in Berlin on 7th and 8th November 2o17 is perfectly suited for anybody seeking to discover more about the current state of technology in these sectors. The event is organized by expert organization DEKRA in collaboration with specialist publisher ETM and its magazines lastauto omnibus, trans aktuell and TeleTraffic. Renowned specialists from the vehicle and original equipment manufacturing industries will discuss the technical solutions of the future with experts from science and research. Political speakers, as well as industry association representatives and strategy consultants will also present the latest developments in legal frameworks and how these will affect the transport industry. To round it all off, there will also be presentations by individuals that are active in the freight industry, detailing their approaches to future-proofing their activities. The target audience of the DEKRA Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference includes fleet operators, freight and logistics specialists, decision-makers in the commercial vehicle and original equipment manufacturing industries, as well as engineers and representatives from the scientific, research and academic sectors.

Tailor-made event program

“The Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference is a high caliber, central platform for discussions between all those involved with commercial vehicles, their safety and future-readiness,” states DEKRA Board Member Clemens Klinke. Two key thematic pillars constitute the backbone of the conference, and participants are free to attend events from both. These pillars are telematics and vehicle technology. This allows attendees to design their own tailor-made event programs covering individual topics.

Industry get-together

The conference is also the suitable venue to announce the winner of the European Commercial Vehicle Safety Award. This is conferred by DEKRA, the DVR and EVU. The ETM Verlag’s German Telematics Award will also be handed out at the conference. A further highlight is the traditional evening event, which serves as a big get-together for industry experts.
