Truck Transportation 2030
There are six megatrends that will have a major impact on the global truck industry in the next 20 years. Increasing urbanization and the emergence of mega-cities are playing a leading role here, changing the main product flows and the demands on logistics.
Global plans to reduce CO2 emissions are another major factor: truck manufacturers will increasingly have to switch to electric and hybrid drives to meet environmental demands. In addition, there will be strong competition from new suppliers – especially from Asia.
The need to save costs to stay competitive will lead to new alliances between OEMs and suppliers to enable growth in emerging markets. These are the main findings of the study "Truck Transportation 2030".
