Panel discussion: Freight transport at the crossroads

How will tightening economic limits, especially the Euro 7 standard, affect the future of freight transport? Where are the current limits on alternative fuels for trucking? Will electricity, gas, hydrogen, synthetic fuels or something else gain ground in heavy-duty road transport? What are the possibilities of switching to electric traction, battery drives or fuel cells for railway vehicles? How will the emphasis on greening and decarbonization of freight transport affect transport prices? How are transit traffic in Europe limited by traffic congestion, customs or security barriers and disputes between states? What is the most demanding job of a driver today and how can the limits that prevent new drivers from entering the industry be removed? Are there fair rules for obtaining contracts in the market? How does automation and digitization affect the situation in freight transport – when planning transports, booking unloading and loading, movement of documentation, tracking costs or transport technology, etc.? In the discussion with transport experts, we will answer these questions and more.
