Trucks, Vans and Buses

Trucks, Vans and Buses

Europe leads the world in efficient, clean, quiet and practical vans, trucks and buses.

  • Commercial vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, fulfilling a huge range of functions: mini-buses, articulated buses, urban delivery vans, container trucks, ambulances, fire trucks, dumpers, crane trucks, pick-up trucks, car transporters and many more.
  • Transporting 14 billion tonnes of goods per year, trucks deliver 75% of all goods carried over land in Europe.
  • Trucks and vans provide an efficient, door-to-door mode of transport, making the link between producers, businesses and consumers.
  • About 90% of the value of all goods in Europe is transported by truck.
  • 85% of all goods carried by trucks are transported over short distances of less than 150 km.
  • 19% of the world's trucks, vans and buses are manufactured in the EU (2.7 million units in 2016).
  • European trucks are first choice around the globe. In 2016, exports of heavy-duty vehicles generated a trade balance surplus of €4.5 billion.
  • Europe's vans, trucks and buses are the most technologically-advanced, cleanest, safest and quietest in the world.
  • The introduction of EURO VI has been a major achievement for trucks and buses, with regulated emissions being slashed to near-zero levels, down 98% since 1990.
  • Trucks' fuel consumption - and therefore CO2 emissions - have decreased by 60% since 1965.
  • Buses are the most widely used and cost-efficient mode of collective passenger transport, taking us 527 billion km every year.
  • Many of our other essential public services are delivered by trucks and vans: postal and courier services; emergency services; and waste management.
