Transport operators prepare for further digitalisation before end of 2018

New research from IRU has revealed the challenges European transport operators face, and highlights the potential for digital solutions and services to unlock industry opportunities.

While IRU’s findings are overall positive, 35 per cent of respondents say they have no plans to invest in digital solutions in the next six months. This suggests that there are pockets of the industry yet to embrace new technologies, who risk being left behind.

Umberto de Pretto, Secretary General at IRU, commented: “Our role to support road transport in becoming more sustainable has never been more important. This event brings together some of the leading innovators in road transport, including Daimler, DKV Euro Service, TomTom and Wtransnet, to share insights and experiences with the businesses running road transport services on the ground.”
