Brochure HVTT15 

The Netherlands is proud to be the host of the 15th International Symposium on Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology.

The HVTT15 offers a worldwide platform for researchers, policy makers, regulators, road agencies, heavy vehicle manufacturers and suppliers and the transport industry, to exchange knowledge and experiences in order to support the development of a safe, sustainable, efficient and productive road freight transport. The HVTT is organized every two years by the International Forum for Road Transport Technology (IFRTT). 

Economy on Wheels. Fast changes, slow structures. The central question during the HVTT15 is how to integrate fast technological and socio-economic developments that affects road freight transport in existing structures: ageing infrastructure, historical grown cities, established market structures and social order and ingrained habits. 

The HVTT15 in Rotterdam expects delegates from all six continents, with over 70 papers presented in three parallel sessions. The HVTT15 offers a program with interesting keynote speakers and panel discussions at plenary sessions, side events and a Young Talent Program.
