An observatory for industrial vehicle and road freight transport

The Industrial Vehicle Observatory (IVO), created under the impetus of the BNP Paribas Group and its subsidiary BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, presents twice-yearly market forecasts for the industrial vehicle sector. Its surveys and analyses are eagerly awaited by players and experts in the transport sector. The IVO also participates in discussions and working groups on environmental issues, such as the National Low Carbon Strategy (SNBC).

"To engage the energy transition in the industrial vehicle and freight transport sector, we must be armed with patience and pragmatism. Because, while it is true that it is absolutely essential that the revolution happen, and that we succeed in this energy transition, there are many technological shifts that we must be able to integrate by 2030. What's more, a complex economic context requires that mobility actors find a viable economic model using new energies.”

Mobility at the heart of BNP Paribas' strategy

BNP Paribas already has a strong and legitimate presence in the various areas of mobility expertise, whether through its specialist subsidiaries Arval, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions and BNP Paribas Personal Finance, but also through its commercial and investment banking platforms.

As part of its GTS 2025 plan, BNP Paribas aims to accelerate its clients' transition to sustainable mobility by putting its integrated model at their service, reinforced by a cross-functional approach to this issue. The Group can thus offer, across the entire value chain, a unique range of innovative solutions that effectively meet all their needs.
