IVECO, a leading Italian manufacturer of industrial vehicles, joins IRU’s global network.
Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President and Member of the Group Executive Council, will also be one of the key speakers at the IRU World Congress in Oman. He will join Jose Manuel Barroso at the opening session of the congress to discuss how trade flows, infrastructure development and regulatory convergence will shape road transport.
The first manufacturer to design industrial vehicles that run on natural gas, IVECO (Industrial Vehicles Corporation) builds light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, including buses and coaches, defense vehicles and off-road vehicles for construction and mining work.
“We are delighted to welcome such an important manufacturer into our network. IRU and IVECO share the same vision of finding technological solutions today to resolve tomorrow’s road transport challenges”, says IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto.
IVECO, founded in 1975, employs some 26,000 people worldwide with production sites in 11 countries.
