Economy and sustainability


Ever smarter transport

Road transport covers almost 75 percent of all transport of goods in Europe. This means that daily some 85 kg of goods is transported by truck for every European. 

In other words: all those trucks on the roads are indispensable. We wouldn’t do without them, because modern trucks feature high payloads, low costs per kilometre, a long service life and a high reliability. In the past 20 years truck technology has improved tremendously. The total emission of noxious matter of twenty today’s trucks is lower than that of one truck from the year 2000.

  • But there are still plenty of challenges. How can the fuel consumption and the CO2 emission be reduced even further? 
  • How can a truck - in terms of cab, cargo-space and number of axles - be composed even smarter?
  • Which technologies can be developed to reduce traffic jams and the number of accidents? 



Our mobility on the road changes rapidly due to new technologies and other vehicle concepts, driven by other forms of energy, like: hybrid, electric, hydrogen.

You will find out by yourself in the Trucknasium!

An interactive educational programme about mobility, sustainability and road-safety for primary education group 7 and 8 (6th grade) and the 7th and 8th grade students of VMBO (intermediate vocational education), HAVO (higher general secondary education) and VWO (preliminary scientific education).

Preferably the programme starts off with a preparatory lesson at school (Transport and logistics), given by the regular teacher. Of course, the Trucknasium will provide a comprehensive instruction paper. After this the class will visit the DAF Museum. There small groups of students will be formed that will attend a number of modules, with a duration of 45 minutes each.

Trucknasium is aimed at 6th grade primary education students (free of charge) and  7th and 8th grade secondary education students (100,- per class).
