USE OF INTERCHANGEABLE BODIES IN CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS TRANSPORT

SYNPUNKTER PAA VAEXELFLAK INOM BYGGMATERIALDISTRIBUTIONEN

The aim of this report is to survey the experiences and the views on the interchangeable body in the distribution of building materials, to be found in Swedish literature. Also, it points out the limited knowledge on the applicability of this interchangeable body. The interchangeable body system means using more interchangeable bodies than trucks. An interchangeable body may be transported at the same time as another one is being loaded or unloaded. Thus, the truck does not have to waste time on waiting during the procedure of loading and unloading. The system requires increased administration work, but reduces the invoice work. Finally, the report gives examples on the use of the interchangeable bodies and discusses their advantages. (TRRL)
