Who is shaping our future?
A highlight of last year was meeting some of the people who are taking the road transport industry forward.
Our New Industry Shapers come from mobility and logistics operators, associations, and suppliers, as well as drivers, researchers, and public sector innovators from across the globe.
We will continue to meet them, hear their stories and discuss some of our world’s most pressing issues with them in 2024 and beyond.
If you know someone who could be a new industry shaper, let us know.
Join our events
We kicked off on 12 May with a special event in Geneva.
And then in Brussels, on 27 June, we celebrated 50 years of our EU representation.
In the second half of the year, we organised regional anniversary events in: Tashkent, Uzbekistan; Cancun, Mexico; Beijing, China; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (22 October); and Istanbul, Türkiye (15 November).
Sign the IRU Charter 75
An industry pledge reinforcing road transport’s commitment to help people in times of crisis.
IRU was founded on 23 March 1948 to help a war-torn Europe rebuild devastated trade and commercial links.
Over the years, as IRU’s membership grew, we built long-standing partnerships with the United Nations, the European Union and many other international and regional organisations to drive progress in the road transport industry and its service to the world’s communities and economies.
Today, as the voice of over 3.5 million mobility and logistics companies across the globe, IRU works to connect societies with safe, efficient and green mobility and logistics.
