SOLUTRANS, at the initiative of the French Bodywork Federation (FFC), is once again focusing on innovation with the I-nnovation AWARDS. These awards recognize new solutions that bring significant and tangible improvements to the supply chain in the transport and urban logistics sector.


The I-nnovation AWARDS reward SOLUTRANS exhibitors for their technical innovation, whether a product marketed less than a year ago or currently under development, and which contributes to improving the performance of bodywork vehicles or companies in the sector. Since 2019, the jury has expanded to include technical experts from commercial and industrial vehicle manufacturers, as well as renowned professionals and specialist journalists. Each trophy is a unique work of art created by an artist. Translated with (free version)
