Is 2024 the year that more will dare to test new technology for more sustainable, efficient, and integrated future transport?
2023 was a year in which the transport sector focused greatly on developing sustainable solutions for the environment and drivers, and for profitability in the industry.
Looking ahead to 2024, we believe that this work will continue actively and steadily. Transport will not decrease in the future. On the contrary, the volume of transported goods is estimated to increase significantly in the coming years, at the same time as we are expected to reduce negative environmental impact!
We are looking forward to participating in even more initiatives that, in various ways, are aimed at accelerating the transition towards more sustainable solutions in the transport sector. We already have a lot of exciting new topics for next year for which we will be sharing our knowledge and insights. Since 1951, VBG has worked purposefully towards sustainable solutions and safe transport on our roads, and we will continue to do so.
However, before we say thank you and goodbye to 2023, and before we ring in the new year, we want to share the most read blog posts from this past year.
