Scania presents sustainable and efficient transport solutions

Scania plays a prominent role at the ITS World Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, which will be inaugurated today by Sweden’s Minister for Communications, Åsa Torstensson. Scania provides speakers and expertise and presents ethanol fuelled distribution trucks and hybrid buses, as well as several support systems that promote road safety and reduce the environmental impact.

The ITS World Congress has attracted more than 3,000 transport researchers from all over the world to Stockholm International Fairs from 21 to 25 of September. The climate challenge is the main theme of the congress, which aims at finding efficient solutions that integrate the four different modes of transport. Scania is one of the main sponsors of the congress, participating with an exhibition stand, expertise and vehicles. Hasse Johansson, Executive Vice President Research and Development, will be joining in the discussions on integrated transport solutions to reduce CO2 emissions. The exhibition includes displays of Scania’s various support systems that promote road safety and fuel efficiency. One system is the new Scania Driver Support that gives truck drivers direct feedback and tips on how to refine their driving style − and saves up to 10 percent on fuel. The system enables major cost reductions and environmental improvements. In a truck driven 200,000 kilometres per year, it can save more than SEK 60,000 (about EUR 6,000) and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 16 tonnes. During the congress week, Scania provides its ethanol hybrid buses for transporting delegates. In cooperation with Green Cargo, Scania also presents examples of sustainable combined transport operations.
