The Volvo Group has shaped the landscape of transportation and infrastructure solutions since its founding in 1927—most recently, through demonstrating and deploying industry-redefining fully autonomous, zero emission, and connected vehicle technologies. As global transportation demands continue to increase due to a growing population, increased urbanization, and a worldwide focus on emission reduction, the transportation industry as we know it today must evolve to factor in the importance of sustainability.

At this year’s ACT Expo, North America’s largest advanced transportation technology and clean fleet event, Lars Stenqvist, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Volvo Group, will take the stage as the morning keynote to discuss the trends shaping a global market and redefining the transportation industry.

We are excited to take the stage at ACT Expo 2020 to highlight our sustainable solutions for an audience of the industry’s most forward-thinking leaders.”
