Both organisations are convening a diverse group of entities in three online meetings to discuss the EU roadmap towards climate neutrality by 2050. IRU and POLIS will highlight different aspects of zero-emission logistics. Exchanges between industry leaders, cities and innovative EU-funded projects will share zero-emission freight solutions and information on the full spectrum of road freight transport. The webinar series will also provide an opportunity for EU-funded projects to present preliminary results, based on real-world piloting of physical and digital equipment for heavy-duty vehicles.

Join us to shape the future of battery electric and fuel cell electric HDVs that will enable the sustainable delivery of goods in all environments, from long-haul to last mile.

Draft Agenda:

  • Welcome words
  • Introduction to the challenges of electrification of HDV freight in (peri-)urban environments (NextETRUCK)
  • The future of hydrogen HDVs in cities (H2Accelerate)
  • Real world prototyping of hydrogen trucks (H2Haul)
  • Round table discussion about logistics in a peri-urban environment
