Volkswagen Truck & Bus presented pioneering technology and products that will transform the entire logistics chain in a sustainable way during the Innovation Day in Hamburg. The Group, which includes brands such as MAN, Scania, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus, and RIO, has set itself the goal of increasing efficiency and improving environmental performance in the world of transportation, as well as of making it safer. In order to achieve this, Volkswagen Truck & Bus is focusing on three trend-setting fields, namely automated driving, connectivity, and alternative drive systems that are friendly to the environment. Faced with enormous growth in transport volumes around the world and emission regulations that are becoming more and more stringent, customers are increasingly looking for such solutions. More efficient and cleaner transportation not only reduces the impact on the environment, it also makes logistics companies more profitable.
