NyTeknik, 17 Oct 2017, online:-
In a debate article, CEO of Swedish haulier association Sveriges Åkeriföretag Rickard Gegö and national coordinator for "Fossil-free Sweden" Svante Axelsson ask for competitive advantages to haulage firms that are aiming to be climate-friendly. In purchases of transport services, priority should be given to those with lowest emissions, they propose. They would also like to see increased efficiency, including optimisation of routes, longer and heavier vehicles and flexibility in delivery times. Moreover, long-term incitements should be introduced for renewing vehicle fleets and conversion to alternative fuels.
