Truck Competence

Truck Competence at Automechanika

Broad spectrum of products and services for trucks at Automechanika in Frankfurt from 13 to 17 September 2016

Automechanika Frankfurt is characterised by great ‘Truck Competence’ – and visitors will be able to discover just how much and in what respects in a special guide listing companies from the equipment, parts, accessories and management & services segments. An orange pictograph on the exhibition stand shows visitors exactly where they need to look for commercial-vehicle products and services.

Make the most of this opportunity to take a look at our various commercial vehicle shows in the outdoor area where racing, rally and trial trucks await. Automechanika is the last stage of the “Drive Your Dream Tour”, which will also be celebrated on the Agora outdoor site with live music during the trade fair weekend.

Light, quiet, efficient – tomorrow’s solutions in the ‘Frankfurter Festhalle’

Trucks at Automechanika

Automechanika continues to increase in significance as a platform for the presentation of innovations and future-oriented solutions and trends – and, for the truck sector, this is twice as exciting. In view of the increasing degree of electro-mobility in the commercial-vehicle sector, a rapid pace of development can be expected. The background to this is an EU Directive calling for deliveries to city centres to be made with zero emissions – in other words, using electric vehicles – by 2030. However, the batteries of these vehicles means they will be much heavier, which will, in turn, limit the payload. The range of electric vehicles also suffers from the additional weight. Therefore, manufacturers must do everything possible to make the bodywork as light as possible.

The after-sales world will be the subject of a special presentation entitled ‘Tomorrow’s Service & Mobility’, to be held for the first time in the ‘Frankfurter Festhalle’. There, visitors will be able to see the Workshop of the Future, as well as products and solutions from the connectivity, alternative power trains, autonomous vehicles and mobility services.
