Transport Efficiency Day 2017

August 24, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

On August 24, it’s time for Transport Efficiency Today’s Sixth Edition at Lindholmen in Gothenburg. We welcome you to attend this conference, which this year will affect transport efficiency on several levels. How should freight be effective in the future of urban areas and how can digitalisation affect the flow of goods, planning and business models? What viable alternatives are already available and what is the future development of energy efficiency on the transport side? This and much more will be presented and discussed, both on and off the stage, at this year’s Treff conference.

As in previous years, the conference will be marked by exciting lectures by scientists and other experts, visionary framtidsutblickar, innovative technical solutions and not least of networking.

Welcome to Göteborg and Lindholmen August 24!
