Among the different types of semi-trailer offered in the market, Link trailers are the most common choice for transportation of a high volume of goods. They are traditional trailers – e.g. curtain, box, reefer, container chassis – equipped with a specific link at the back that enables to couple it with an extra trailer. As a result, the truck tractor can simultaneously carry a link trailer connected to an additional semi-trailer. 

There are several benefits resulting from the combination of multiple trailer-modules. 

  • HIGHER LOAD CAPACITY
    Long combination vehicles can transport more goods per trip/km.
  • REDUCED EMISSIONS
    Less total fuel consumption.
  • FINANCIAL GAINS
    Lower costs per ton/km.
  • REDUCED CONGESTIONS
    Fewer trucks for the same goods. Same braking capacities, as each axle braking it’s own load.
  • SUPPORT EFFICIENT LOGISTICS 

From a EU regulatory perspective, in Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and some roads in Norway, trucks with trailers are allowed to be 25.25 m long. In Finland 34.5 meters is allowed since January 2019, but the longest vehicles are 31.5 metres long because of cornering regulations.
