The biennial trade fair for haulage and urban transport professionals SOLUTRANS is where innovation and information in the HGV sector come together, for all businesses. SOLUTRANS, the global hub for heavy & light commercial vehicles, will welcome you for its 17th edition, from 21 to 25 November 2023, at Lyon Eurexpo.


A committed, ambitious and resolutely confirmed promise in the 2023 programme through 5 major themes:

  • Embedded intelligence: supporting the sector towards self-driving
  • Urban deliveries: Alternative delivery modes for an increasingly restrictive city centre.
  • Retrofit: Improving what already exists, an economical and ecological option
  • Tyres: positive impact casings at the hearts of industry issues
  • New Energies: Diversifying powertrains, an economic and environmental challenge

Road transportation is going through its revolution. A revolution in practices, with a constant digitalisation of companies, but also a revolution in the way we use energies. SOLUTRANS 2023 will reflect these fundamental trends.

A global legal frame

Regulations to reduce harmful emissions in Europe and globally are pushing diesel engines away at a relatively short term, while Industrial and urban vehicles constructors have been preparing the transition out of diesel for several years.


A mutating IV and LCV fleet

It is now certain that tomorrow’s road transport will have to do with diesel engines for several years while biofuel, gas engines, electric batteries and, in a longer term, hydrogen-fueled vehicles will gradually build up. A complicated energy mix that will evolve continually, until the absolute disappearance of fossil energies in road transportation in the very long term.  


A long term energy transition

In this transition era, our own success lies in our own hands! 

How to choose the right vehicle and engine? How to understand the maturation level of the available technologies? How to make a choice based on the vehicle’s purpose (messaging, long haul…)?


SOLUTRANS, a decision helper tool

SOLUTRANS’ own purpose is to help you navigate the regulation, technical and competitive stakes, and ultimately help you make this revolution a growing opportunities.
