Two trucks save 200,000 km
Hannu Nylander is the Logistics & Service Level Director in Vaasan. He has been very active in both political and industry discussions about HCT trucks in Finland. The large trucks represent a huge business potential, and they reduce the carbon footprint from transportation.
“We have replaced four regular trucks with two HCT trucks on our north- and southbound routes. The two HCT trucks will save us 200,000 kilometres annually,” he says.
Fresh bread doesn’t weigh much. So, it’s not a concern how many kilos a truck can carry on a truckload. The challenge is cargo space. One HCT truck can carry 52 FIN pallets (a larger pallet standard common in Finland) compared to a regular truck that carries only 40 FIN pallets.
