Aerodynamic and flexible trucks
Description of call
"Aerodynamic and flexible trucks"

The energy efficiency of logistics and co-modal transportation needs to be significantly improved, since road haulage represents the dominant share of CO² emissions and energy consumption. Adaptable and configurable complete truck concepts and architectures can significantly contribute to improving road haulage energy efficiency, by improving aerodynamics and energy efficiency, while contributing to meet future logistics and co-modality needs for different segments and markets. Industry, authorities and policy-makers should collaborate on standardisation issues in order to allow the use of configurable trucks in road haulage.
