During its Presidency of the European Union in 2016, the Netherlands has initiated a European Truck Platooning Challenge. Six brands of automated trucks - DAF Trucks, Daimler Trucks, Iveco, MAN Truck & Bus, Scania and Volvo Group - have been driving in columns (platooning), on public roads from several European cities to the Netherlands. The aim of the Challenge was to bring platooning one step closer to implementation.
Erik Jonnaert (ACEA), Steve Phillips (CEDR), Marc Billiet (IRU), Servi Beckers (EReg), Paul Schockmel (Clepa) and Godfried Smit (ESC) signed a declaration of joint commitment to truck platooning.
