1 A: Longer Heavier Vehicles Q: Environmental costs (minimise) –Emissions, Pollution, Waste... Q: Track costs (balance) –Pavement design / axle loads, tyre scrub... –Infrastructure: Bridge design / imposed load, Curves / turning circle... Q: Economics (maximise) –Efficiency; Reliability;... Solution - Performance Based Standards (optimise) –Longer semi-trailers –More efficient combinations

2 Longer semi-trailers - background – Competitive systems: ISO Series 1 vs. palletised cargo Political:Operational:Technical bias (geographical/modal/economic) – Paradigm shift from ‘space’ to handling considerations Converging gateways : outer (handling/transport), inner (pallets) – ISO regulatory change - pallet compatible containers – EU new generation of ‘swap bodies’ Institutional asymmetries & UNCTAD/ISO rivalry? –2010/15 - Next Generation (EU or Worldwide?) EU road dominant : Import/Export ISO x2 x3 : Combined Transport? OSS - Open Source Software
