Symposium on carbon reduction

Hanover, Germany:  A symposium on CO2 reduction in temperature-regulated transport takes place nest week at the IAA Hanover truck show.

Entitled “The yet untapped potential of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in temperature-controlled transport”,  the symposium includes a panel discussion and is organised by the VDA jointly with Transfrigoroute and will showcase measures for decreasing the CO2 output from refrigerated transport.
