Innovative Finnish transport sector
The Finnish road transport sector is dynamic and innovative. For example, Finnish fleet managers can plan their deliveries on trucks including road trains of trailers with loads of up to 76 metric tonnes. Moreover, the government is about to trial loads of up to 120 tonnes. In another experiment, the Finnish Post, in conjunction with the Work Efficiency Institute and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has fitted some delivery vehicles with cameras and sensors to collect data about the often-challenging Finnish weather and road conditions. Their aim is to improve real time safety and traffic information for truck drivers and other professional road users, as well as give public authorities real time reports on the state of the roads to enable them to carry out any maintenance or repairs as quickly as possible.
Innovation at Kuljetus
Innovation is one of the main topics at Kuljetus 2017 with new product launches from local as well as international players in the industry. The exhibitors consist of heavy vehicle importers, trailer and superstructure manufacturers, alongside other key industry products and service providers. The event is targeted at road transport professionals including fleet owners, fleet managers and truck drivers. All the 30,000 square metre exhibition space has been booked out.
Growth in Finnish truck and commercial vehicle trade
“The truck and commercial vehicle trade has been growing for about a year now. Coming out of recession, outdated equipment will be renewed. Also the pick-up in construction is reflected in the demand for commercial vehicles,” said Tero Kallio, CEO of the Automobile Importers Association. The Automobile Importers Association is one of the three organising partners of Kuljetus 2017. The other two are Jyväskylä Fair Ltd and the Finnish trade association Technology Industries of Trailers and Superstructures.
“The Kuljetus 2017 exhibition offers customers not only the chance to compare vehicles side by side but also to subscribe to their favourite new vehicle bodywork,” said Aki Sirén, president of the latter Finnish trade association.
Jyväskylä is centrally located in Finland, making it an easy day trip from anywhere in the country. For those with some extra time, Jyväskylä is worth visiting. It was one of the fastest growing cities in Finland in the 20th century with a population of around 140,000 people. In addition to being nicknamed the “Athens of Finland” in the Finnish national epic poem*, the “Kalevala”, Jyväskylä boasts interesting cultural and sporting attractions including buildings by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto; the Neste Oil Rally Finland and the annual Jyväskylä Arts Festival.
