Organized by the International Forum for Road Transport Technology (IFRTT) & Research Institute of Highway Ministry of Transport (RIOH), the 16th International Symposium on Heavy Vehicle Transportation Technology (HVTT16) was approved by the Ministry of Transport, and will be held in September, 2021 China, for the first time.

The International Forum for Road Transport Technology (IFRTT) IFRTT is a non-governmental organization, which is composed of scholars and experts in the field of road transport, including research institutes, universities, vehicle manufacturing enterprises, industry management departments and transport enterprises. The organization holds an international conference on heavy vehicle transport technology every two years, which aims to promote the development of road transport technology globally and provide technical support for equipment technology upgrading, road transport safety, standard and regulation revision, etc. We should strengthen cooperation and exchanges in the field of transportation and provide a platform for global researchers and policy makers to communicate with each other. The first International Conference on Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology was hosted by the Road Transport Association of British Columbia, Canada, in 1986. Henceforth, it has been held in Britain, the United States, New Zealand, France and the Netherlands.

HVTT16 is going to be held in Qingdao, September 2021, in addition to the traditional style of continuation of the 15 congress, the conference will further adhere to the principle of pragmatic, saving, shows the results of China's transportation industry, leads the future transportation development direction, as the world's transportation industry innovation and development of international communication platform.

The hosting of HVTT16 in China will be of great significance to strengthen the connectivity of countries along "One Belt and One Road". Meanwhile, this high-level international event is an excellent opportunity to show the development of China's transportation industry to the world. It is also the embodiment of further implementing the "One Belt and One Road Initiative" and serving the construction of "traffic power". At that time, China will share its experience with global scholars and experts in the field of heavy vehicles, which will further enhance the influence of China's transportation industry in the world, improve the technical level of China's road transportation equipment and promote the transformation and upgrading of the road transportation industry. This international grand meeting with high standard and high starting point has attracted great attention from domestic and foreign professional fields, please stay tuned.

The core topic of HVTT16 is to exchange the development trend of heavy vehicle transportation technology, display the innovation results of heavy vehicle transportation technology, promote the world heavy vehicle transportation technology exchange and cooperation, and promote the innovation and development of heavy vehicle transportation technology. On the occasion, there will be the opening ceremony, symposium, parallel meetings, technical inspection and so on.
