44 tonne trailers suppose an increase in capacity of 16%. This signifies an increase in cost, but also greater productivity and less pollution.
During the seminars titled “Effects of increases in maximum dimensions and capacity of heavy-weight vehicles”, held in Fundacion Corell in Madrid, hauliers are proposing alternative measures, such as decreasing waiting times, and for drivers not to be obliged to carry out the tasks related to loading and unloading of cargo
The main disadvantages of increasing cargo capacity to 4 tonnes are:

  • Increased costs
  • Higher risk and responsibility associated with a larger cargo.
