Modular road trains set a record

A new calculation from ITD shows that the number of modular road train units is increasing continuously in Denmark benefitting the efficiency in the transport and logistics business. The positive development pleases the association for the Danish road transport of goods seeing modular road trains as an important part in the efforts in making the transports effective. Efficient transports reduce the climate and environmental impact, decrease congestion on the roads and support the competitiveness of Danish companies.

The number of modular road trains has experienced a steady increase in new units since the introduction in 2008. This year is no exception, where the number of modular road trains set a record with 835 units. That is an increase of almost 7.5 per cent compared to last year.

 

- Seen from my chair, it is no surprise that the development continues to point in the direction of still more modular road trains on the Danish road net. Modular road trains is an important tool for transport and logistics companies for optimising transport patterns in the most appropriate

 way. Over time, it will strengthen both the economy and the competitiveness in the single company, says ITD’s Senior Advisor Jørn-Henrik Carstens.

 

According to ITD, it is, however, not only the transport sector gaining from the distribution of modular road trains.

 

- Modular road trains should be seen as one of the good initiatives contributing to make the Danish transport sector more efficient for the benefit of climate, environment and infrastructure due to less trucks on the roads and less fuel consumption. They contribute minimising the industry’s CO2 imprint and increasing the passability for the remaining road users. Therefore, I also see modular road trains as part of the solution not least in the light of the constantly increasing quantity of goods, says Jørn-Henrik Carstens and continues:

 

- If the advantages by using modular road trains must give an impression, it requires opening up the possibility for using modular road trains in connection with border crossing transports. In Denmark, the remaining Scandinavia and Benelux, we have very good experiences from which other European countries can benefit.

 

ITD is in dialogue with the German authorities to establish a border crossing test with modular road trains. The negotiations have been at a standstill due to the German government election, but will be resumed during spring.
