Logistics exhibition IAA TRANSPORTATION in Hannover, Germany.

KURBADS On September 20th – 25th the world’s most important freight, passenger transport and logistics exhibition IAA TRANSPORTATION took place in Hannover, Germany.


This is the largest commercial transport innovation platform, where all major truck manufacturers were widely represented. The exhibition offered to view various types of transport, from trucks to cargo bikes, from delivery vans to package drones, but this year dominated the innovations related to powertrain electrification and climate neutrality.


4 representatives of our company went to the exhibition – service manager Ivars Čiblis, car locksmith Guntars Abazorins, truck service manager Rihards Mesijs and truck service foreman Aleksejs Porietis.


“First of all, the truck pavilion of Kaessbohrer was visited. Its representative Krzystof Kucharewicz presented the latest technical solutions offered by this Austrian truck factory. We were particularly interested in the new trailer model “Intago Max”, whose production is scheduled to start in 2023. All the innovations are aimed at increasing the carrying capacity and adapting to the increasingly large dimensions of passenger cars, especially for the transportation of electric cars.” says I. Čiblis.


Kurbads follows with interest the news related to more environmentally friendly commercial vehicles, because it is an industry that connects us as well. The exhibition focused more on hydrogen and electric trucks, which correspond to our road transport segment.


We have also gone to the IAA Transportation exhibitions in Hannover before, but this year the novelty was test drives, where visitors could try the new products in person. Some of the truckks could be driven through the streets of Hanover and I. Čiblis took this opportunity, by testing the new MB e-Actros goods delivery electric vehicle. There was also a great opportunity to get acquainted with practical solutions for charging commercial transport electric cars.


IAA Transportation 2022 welcomed more than 1,400 exhibitors from 42 different countries. Exhibition takes place every four years, so already for the 68th time, it’s expected in September 2026 in Hannover!
