NEXANS: Filling Rate

Shift to 44 tonnes in multimodal transport and improvement of the Filling Rate

European countries have adopted a limit of 44 tonnes in their respective highway codes. These developments allow us, in cooperation with transport operators, to carry out cross-border multimodal transport with a payload of up to 29 tonnes, compared to 25 tonnes previously. This was not possible in conventional road transport and gives the possibility to reduce the number of trucks on the roads (reduction of 1 truck out of 7) and consequently to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We will also improve our usual loading Rates. With optimization gaps ranging from 1 to 2 tonnes, we will work with our departure sites and our customers to optimize loads to reduce the number of trucks on the road each year.
