Elmia Lastbil more important than ever as the industry transitions
Elmia Lastbil 2022 consolidated its position as the natural arena to take the Swedish transport and haulage industry into the future. The four days brought the key issues into real focus, and also seeded new collaborations. Together, we could strengthen efforts towards the green transition and other vital issues for the sector.
New dates set for Elmia Lastbil
New dates for the exhibition Elmia Lastbil have now been set. The national and international venue for the haulage and transport industry will on display already on 2-5 June in 2021, at Elmia, Jönköping.
Elmia Lastbil postponed to 2021
Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and the ramifications for the truck and haulage industry concerned, Elmia Lastbil is postponed from August 2020 to 2021. The decision has jointly been taken by the three organisations responsible for the trade show, Elmia AB, Sveriges Åkeriföretag and Albinsson & Sjöberg, in consultation with major business partners.
