More than ever before, flexibility, speed and cost-effectiveness are now essential requirements for goods traffic and are particularly well served by the multitude of different vehicle types and bodies, and the flexible departure times, associated with road transport. This is the reason why the vast majority of goods are transported by road nowadays. The international connections between national economies and the polypolistic supply situation in the transport sector mean that forwarding agents must pay particular attention to the efficiency of their vehicles to ensure that they can prevail over their competitors. However, as the vehicles have to be replaced after an average of 5 to 6 years due to the high annual mileage, additional efficiency measures integrated into the vehicle must be amortized after just 2 years. The most commonly implemented efficiency measures affect the aerodynamics, tyres and navigation.
