REGIONAL HUBS



Due to global travel restrictions associated COVID-19, from 7-9 September Regional Hubs are being hosted for the HVTT16 in several regions.


The Regional Hubs provide an opportunity for registered HVTT16 participants to:

  • Watch live streaming sessions and pre-recorded sessions in a group setting.

  • Meet and network with other regional HVTT participants.

  • Listen to presentations delivered ‘in-person’ by local speakers.

  • Be part of regional Q and A sessions.



Why you should join us?
Throughout the world, countries are faced with a growing freight task. This presents significant challenges in terms of congestion, sustainability, environmental impact and safety.

Approaches to addressing these challenges vary widely from country to country and reflect both the local situation and community expectations. Productivity, safety and sustainability gains can be achieved through Intelligent Transport Systems, enhanced logistics, vehicle technology developments, intermodal operations, increased size and weight, Performance Based Standards etc. The optimal mix of approaches varies from country to country – but we can learn from the experiences of other countries.

Robust discussion and sharing of experiences between participants is encouraged, and the regional forums will offer the opportunity for Symposium participants who can’t travel to China, to meet other participants in a local environment, listen to Symposium speakers, and discuss the papers with like-minded professionals.
