Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to describe what the Chinese long-haulage transport industry wants and needs from truck and semi-trailer manufacturers in order to be sustainable in the long run, both in terms of road safety as well as from an environment perspective. Findings include; how companies in Chinese long-haulage transport industry manage their businesses and the problems they face regarding how they can conduct their long-haulage transport business as efficiently as possible. Three key transport segments have been identified and analyzed to identify one segment where an optimized vehicle combination i.e. truck could improve the current segment. This article presents also a proposed design of a transport vehicle that would enable transport companies to haul goods all over China in a legal manner. This would ease logistics for transport companies and reduce the environmental impact.
