An integrated approach to road freight transport CO2 reduction in Europe

We review and verify studies investigating CO2 emissions reduction potential of road freight vehicles through a comparative literature study and a survey with the 6 largest European manufacturers of heavy duty vehicles: DAF, Daimler, IVECO, MAN, Scania and Volvo, with the support of ACEA. The aim of this study is to consolidate the collective knowledge of manufacturers and frame it in the context of an integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from the road freight sector, by combining vehicle modifications of a technical nature with measures to be taken by other actors in the field, like tyre manufacturers, fuel producers, transport service suppliers, road infrastructure managers and legislators.
