Swedish roadmap for high capacity transports (HCT)

This paper summarizes the Swedish Roadmap for High Capacity Transports (HCT) that Swedish stakeholders developed during the period September 2012 - April 2013 in order to initiate the steps needed for an introduction of HCT-vehicles on a broader basis within Sweden. HCT are proven to be more efficient and environmentally-adapted than the present vehicles, without heavy investments in the infrastructure. The roadmap states that there is a large interest in HCT and that there is a significant potential. The first proposed steps of HCT introduction is clearly very profitable from a socio-economically point of view. The paper includes a brief description of the developments within different innovation domains; Infrastructure adaptation, Information systems, HCT Logistics, HCT vehicle combinations and Rules and regulations as well as recommendations for the steps to follow. The roadmap with target year 2030 showed that the image of HCT´s potential was further reinforced.
