dc.descriptionAnnual Logistics Research Network Conference (17th : 2012 : Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport).en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipIn the United Kingdom (UK), the length of a goods carrying vehicle is limited to a maximum of 16.5m for a standard articulated vehicle and 18.75m for a draw-bar combination, although the impact of extending the length of an articulated vehicle to a new upper limit of 18.55m is currently being evaluated through operational trials. This paper assesses the environmental, economic, and practical impacts of increasing the maximum length of vehicles in the UK to 25.25m, while maintaining the maximum gross weight at the current UK limit of 44 tonnes. For the purpose of the study, such vehicles will be known as ‘High Capacity Vehicles’ (HCVs). The term should not be confused with ‘LHVs’ (Longer Heavier Vehicles), which has been used to describe vehicles that exceed the maximum vehicle lengths set out in Directive 96/53/EC, or that exceed the gross vehicle weight that Member States must allow to freely circulate (40 tonnes). The scope is limited to the consideration of 25.25m vehicle variants that are currently in use in the Netherlands.en_US
