Sweden: Call for opening more roads for heavy trucks15.11.2017 Sweden: Call for opening more roads for heavy trucks
Transport och Logistik, 15 Nov 2017, online:-
The Swedish Association of Road Transport Companies (Sveriges Åkeriföretag) has called for opening more roads for heavy trucks of 34 metres and 74 tonnes. The change should apply from April 2018, CEO Rickard Gegö states. Currently only about 8% of goods tonnes in Sweden are transported longer distances than 300 kilometres, and the possibility to convert road transports to other means is considered small. All means of transports need to become more efficient to attain the goal of fossil-free transports, the association claims.
