35th anniversary and new products at the Nordic region’s largest truck fair

Elmia Lastbil, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, was inaugurated by Sweden’s infrastructure minister, Tomas Eneroth (Social Democrat) on Wednesday in Jönköping, Sweden. The minister prioritised attending the fair for two of its four days, despite the ongoing campaign for national elections in just a few weeks’ time.

“Elmia Lastbil is the major haulage event in the Nordic Region and this is where the whole industry meets. I wanted to demonstrate how important it is for me and the government to be here,” he said.

In addition to the ministerial visit, exhibitors presented new products and many smart truck body constructions and solutions.

“For us the fair is very important and a major meeting place,” commented Scania’s head of communications, Jennifer Erdtman. “Not just for ourselves but also for truck bodybuilders, customers and sales agents. Getting everyone together at the same place for a few days and thereby being able to access all this information is unique.”
