What do you see as one of the most important trends for 2023?
In 2023, we have a lot of available technology that provides the possibility for people to drive change. This is already happening but in order to keep the momentum going, the technology must convince more people to make the change happen.
What does "Make intelligent moves" mean to you?
To me, intelligence means to rethink ways of doing things and to find better solutions for how to manage scarce resources. This is key in order to find a path forward for a better tomorrow.
What are the main benefits of doing electric transport in urban environments?
The need for freight transport continues to rise, especially in urban areas. With electric transport, we are able to meet these demands while reducing emissions and noise pollution. As a result, we increase the quality of life for the people living in urban areas.
