DUO² – We decrease the fuel consumption with up to 20% per transported unit of load

Right now there are two seperat tests ongoing parallel (July 2018)

The firts project running was the “DUO-trailer” with contains a tractor with dubbletrailers (about 32m). This combination is driving between Gothenburg and Malmö on the E6 and on connection to Schenkers terminals in Gothenburg and Malmö. The test has been ongoing since 2012 and the combination has traveled about 400 000 km as the Duo-trailer (July 2018). Our dubbletrailer has dubble amount of load compared to a European tractor with a singletrailer, see picture below.

The later test “DUO-CAT” contains a truck with two CATs (27,3m). The DUO-CAT project started in March 23rd 2015. This combination drove under the first phase singletrips on the night as the DUO-CAT and distribution on the daytime (truck and one CAT).The singletrips at night gave about 50 000km as DUO-CAT before phase two started in August 2018 on another location.
