Unlocking efficiency and sustainability with Duo trailers

In the world of logistics and transportation, the quest for efficiency and sustainability is ever-present. One solution that is gaining momentum is the Duo Trailer, a configuration featuring two trailers attached to a single truck. This concept, which is not entirely new and is already used in other countries, will gain momentum in Sweden due to changing legislation. 

 

Changing Legislation in Sweden

The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) and other local authorities are working to improve the efficiency and sustainability of transportation, especially in key areas like ports, terminals, and industrial zones. This will become possible with the Duo trailer concept. As of December 1st, 2023, the Swedish Transport Administration is opening its roads to these extended vehicle combinations. The Duo trailer is a configuration that involves linking two trailers to a single truck. This effectively creates a road train. The Duo concept allows for a higher load-carrying capacity per trip. It is essential to note that Sweden is not the only country exploring this concept. Other countries, such as Finland, have already embraced it, showcasing its effectiveness and potential.

 

What do these changes mean for our customers? 

The Duo Trailer configuration enables the transportation of larger loads in a single trip, reducing the number of journeys required for the same amount of cargo. This results in increased transport efficiency and cost savings. Since Finland has already embraced the concept, this means our customers will be able to transport more cargo across multiple countries in the Nordics. Using Duo Trailers leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions, estimated at 27%. 

We can help our customers comply with these new rules to optimize their operations. Contact us today to learn more about these solutions and how they can benefit your business.
