This report identifies potential improvements in terms of more effective safety and
environmental regulation for trucks, backed by better systems of enforcement, and
identifies opportunities for greater efficiency and higher productivity.The report
is based on a review of literature, consultation among stakeholders, and research
and analysis from working group members. It also presents the results of a comprehensive
benchmarking study of 39 truck configurations in operation around the world – from
typical workhorse vehicles to very high capacity vehicles – and assesses their performance
in terms of dynamic stability, productivity and impact on the infrastructure.
