European Truck Platooning Challenge 2016
Creating Next Generation Mobility
The Netherlands is delighted to host the European Truck Platooning Challenge 2016, the first cross border truck platooning initiative in Europe. And it is more than a technical project: it is about cooperation, about acting as a team to facilitate border crossing and compatibility on legal and technical issues.
As holder of the European Presidency in 2016, the Netherlands hopes to bring truck platooning a step closer to implementation. We believe that it can become a reality in Europe by 2020. Hence our statement: Creating Next Generation Mobility. Please visit the official website to learn more about Truck Platooning.
