No green light yet for trials with the Super EcoCombi on Dutch roads
The Super EcoCombi (SEC), also called the Duo trailer concept by Ewals Cargo Care, has recently been tested on test tracks. In order to get this truck pulling two trailers (linked by a dolly) on the Dutch roads and reap its benefits, its technical performance was evaluated (e.g. turning radius, visibility,…). Unfortunately, green light could not be given yet.
Seen the multitude of benefits for the environment, the society and the logistics industry that could be generated by the introduction of the SEC on Dutch roads and ultimately on cross-border corridors, it would be highly unfortunate to end the journey here. Therefore, in close cooperation with the SEC Community, the results of the tests are analysed and potential further steps are examined.
Ewals continues to believe that the CO2 reduction which could be generated by this transport concept could significantly contribute to international environmental goals. With safety as a prerequisite, we are still convinced the SEC can be introduced successfully!
