The concept of Longer Combination Vehicles (LCV), i.e. vehicles up to 35 m in length, has a potential to improve pre- and post-haulage; however the same is not allowed by the regulations in Sweden. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how to make the pre- and post- haulage more sustainable, from an environmental and an economic perspective. The results indicate that the use of LCV would decrease the number of trips per route and therefore lower the environmental effects on the route.
