Using an ETT vehicle, the number of heavy transport in traffic is reduced. In 18 months, an ETT vehicle had the capacity to transport 80,000 cubic metres of timber, with 650 fewer truck loads, compared with a standard timber truck. This means a reduction of 210,000 kilometres, corresponding to about 5.3 times around the globe. In addition, it appears that wear and tear on the roads was reduced since the load is evenly distributed, signifying considerably less pressure on the axle.
Because of the clear environemtnal impact, the project group is now hoping that the ETT vehicle will be tested in more districts and are are hoping for positive news from the Swedish Road Administration and the Swedish Transport Agency in the future.
