Pre-Commercial show workshop held



A special pre-show workshop event has been in held in Germany to inform the media of what will be happening at the 65th Commercial Vehicles show later this year.

The event takes place in Hannover in September and high ranking representatives from the European commercial vehicle industry attended the workshop.

Matthias Wissmann, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), stated “If this is implemented as it stands, the tariffs for national roads will be more than double those for motorways. 

“That would have considerable structural-policy impacts – principally if, as planned, tolls are introduced on all national roads from 2018.  It would harm parts of the country that are structurally underdeveloped. We therefore propose that initially the motorway toll should continue to apply to four-lane national roads.”
