This time, this famous show which takes place every two years and is aimed at professionals of the road transport sector, has reached 36.000 visitors and 610 stands in about 75.000 square meters dedicated to expositions and outdoor shows.
Representatives from Liderkit in France took advantage of this prestigious show in the sector to get ideas about new products and to stablish contact with related professionals and companies. With some of them, positive synergies are appearing, which may result in good cooperation agreements.
In addition, the delegation from Liderkit in SOLUTRANS, where Sweden has been the guest country this year, paid special attention to the key points which the show was focused on, such as electrical vehicles and urban distribution, the factory of the future or cybersecurity, among others. In this regard, SOLUTRANS had a Training area based on new technologies where attendants could know more and discover new characteristic of the 4.0 Industry, like virtual reality, the Internet of things (IoT) and the latest digital technologies in the sector.
