The guests could furthermore enjoy a warm buffet lunch and home-made barista coffees, whilst networking with the other attendees.

The full day of presentations and demonstrations was closed by a vibrant discussion of the esteemed AEROFLEX-panel, where topics for more efficient innovations for safer transport contributing to the zero emission reduction including legislative adaptations were engaged. The panel discussion was given an extra interesting dynamic by the participation of two representatives from the European Commission. Overall, the panel shared a positive outlook on the future for energy-efficient long-haul road freight transport.
