Traffic & Transport │ Climate, Environment & Sustainability

Together with its members, the VDA is focusing on a wide range of solutions to make mobility even more environmentally and climate friendly, and sees itself as an innovative driver of the development towards sustainable individual mobility.

Area of Expertise in Transport Policy

The area of expertise looks after around 70 member companies from the German trailer and body industry as well as omnibus manufacturers, which are grouped together in VDA's Manufacturer Group II.

The member companies of Manufacturer Group II are predominantly medium-sized and often manufacture highly specialized products for their customers - the majority from the business customer sector (B2B). Germany is still one of the world's largest producers of commercial vehicles. Medium-sized companies and businesses are a guarantor of growth and employment. Almost one in five jobs in the automotive industry in Germany is linked to commercial vehicles. 

The Transport Policy department is responsible for organizing VDA committees for the commercial vehicle industry. The focus is on representing the interests of trailer and body manufacturers and on intensive exchange with German van and truck manufacturers from VDA Manufacturer Group I (manufacturers of motor vehicles and their engines). In addition, the Transport Policy Department is in charge of the secretariat of CLCCR (International Association of the Body and Trailer Building Industry).
