– The Swedish Government is prioritizing sustaining the functionality of roads, such as coping with the greater volume of traffic, primarily in the cities, through maintenance works; funds for road operation and maintenance are, thus, projected to increase.
– Also, emissions from road freight transport have been a challenge, across the world. By transporting freight in larger but fewer lorries could reduce the problem to some extent.
– Longer and heavier vehicles increase the possibilities of transporting larger amounts of freight per shipment and produce lower emissions and costs per ton kilometer.
– Sweden and Finland are the leading countries in Europe for heavy vehicles. These countries have considerably heavier lorries when compared to the rest of the European countries. The heavier lorries represent a competitive advantage for road haulage.
– In Sweden, the lorries can weigh a maximum of 74 tons, while it stands at around 40 tons in the rest of the European Union and in Finland, it totals 76 tons.
