About our customer
Rail and waterway transport are commonly considered better environmental performers than road transport in the carriage of goods. But the validity of such general statements is limited, as a study of thinkstep for the VDA shows. Considering the national combined transport road transport is comparable with rail and in some cases even better.
Sustainable and modern mobility are the main objectives of the VDA. The VDA nationally and internationally promotes the interests of the entire German automotive industry. It can bank on a strong power base of members consisting of automobile manufacturers, suppliers and manufacturers of trailers, special bodies and containers. Unlike in many other countries, they are organized under one association, resulting in decisive advantages for the German automotive industry through direct dialogue and rapid decision-making.
In the interest of all its members, the VDA is active in all areas of the motor traffic industry like economic and transport policy, technical legislation, quality assurance and taxation. In addition, the environment and climate protection are of particular importance. The VDA is also the organizer of international motor shows for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, which always draw the great interest of the experts and public alike.
