Published on by Jennifer ABIJABER - updated on

The Greater Lyon authority has for the past two years been working closely with Sweden on the subject of city centre deliveries. This project aims to share best practice between the various industry players, aiming for organisational improvement so as to generate benefits for the environment and performance. In this respect, on the inaugural day of SOLUTRANS, a Swedish delegation will visit the Greater Lyon area to discuss the latest achievements of the project.

On the following day, Wednesday 22 November, this delegation, headed by the Minister for Infrastructure, Ms Anna Johansson, accompanied by the Swedish Ambassador to France, Ms Veronika Wand-Danielsson, will attend the exhibition for a special Sweden Day. This will be an opportunity to witness the latest developments in autonomous and connected vehicles and examples of Franco-Swedish cooperation on this topic.
