Smarter, Safer, Cleaner: How Small Changes to Lorry Design Can Make a Big Difference


With both safety and environmental challenges in mind, T&E commissioned an independent study from the automotive research institute FKA aimed at identifying the optimal shape and dimensions of a tractor (the part of the lorry that pulls the trailer), integrating new aerodynamic solutions and improving both active and passive safety.  This summary report presents the conclusions and policy recommendations of that work.
