Why are trucks so important to EU economy and society?
In this short video, ACEA’s Commercial Vehicle Board Chairman and CEO of Volvo Group, Martin Lundstedt, explains in simple terms why trucks are so important to the EU economy and society.
Trucks are the most flexible and economic mode of transportation. They are also essential to the functioning of the wider European logistics and transport system.
Most of our daily necessities – such as fresh food from the supermarket or medicines – depend on trucks at some point in the distribution chain.
Likewise, many essential public services are delivered by trucks, such as waste collection, and emergency and construction services.
In recent times of crises, the commercial vehicle industry has yet again proven its vital role for the functioning of societies; enabling its customers to deliver goods to consumers, and to offer transport services to business partners.
In recent times of crisis, we have seen just how important it is to have a well-functioning transport and logistics system across Europe.
