Volvo promotes longer trucks


Recommended Posts

January 26, 2019

Today in Gothenburg, Sweden, Volvo Trucks spokesperson Lena Larsson explains the environmental benefits of allowing both heavier and longer trucks.

There is no indication that transport needs will decrease in future, which is why we need to work towards more efficient transport.

Experimental activities show 20% of CO2 reductions.

Take note... A 13.6 meter trailer plus swing radius is 14 meters x 2= 28 meters + a fraction of a meter for dolly articulation, etc.. Volvo is proposing a 32 meter overall length which leaves nearly 4 meters for the cab vs. the current 2.5 meter allowance... A conventional cab with a short sleeper will fit in 4 meters. Perhaps we're seeing Volvo's long term planning here?
