Longest Semi Truck on the Road in Europe By SEAT
SEAT and Grupo Sesé are again at the forefront of road transport. Both companies carried out a pilot test to analyse the performance of the duo trailer, the largest and most efficient freight delivery truck now driving on motorways in some European countries. The test journey was made from Zaragoza to the SEAT headquarters in Martorell and will be repeated in upcoming months while transporting components.
SEAT Vice-president for Production and Logistics Dr. Christian Vollmer pointed out that “the duo trailer has the capacity to reduce by 50% the number of trucks on the road, and this implies huge benefits in terms of sustainability, environmental responsibility, safety and efficiency. Innovation is at the core of SEAT and these tests are in the same spirit that led us to bring the mega truck to Spain two years ago in partnership with Grupo Sesé.”
For the time being, this research study will conclude with a report to demonstrate the performance and benefits of this new vehicle in regards to emissions reduction, efficiency and road safety so that in the near future its use can be standardised in Spain. In relation to these benefits, Grupo Sesé managing director Ángel Pueyo underlined that “the added advantage of this means of transport to reducing road accidents and emissions and cost savings is its versatility and the way it promotes multimodality and improves efficiency and sustainability.”
