“Aircargo Transport: Reliable Throughout Europe”

The German state of Hesse will only allow Longer Heavier Vehicles in its territory if strict conditions are met, Hessian traffic minister Dieter Posch (FDP) has announced.

According to a report from Hessian Broadcasting, which has been confirmed by the ministry, Posch wants the 5-year national trial of longer vehicles to always be scientifically guided. The minister also wants to give local authorities in Hesse the right to decide whether to permit LHVs on company premises in their territory.

Posch does support the trial itself, but desires a public debate about a number of aspects of the trial. For example, it is not yet clear on which roads the longer vehicles will or will not be permitted. Local authorities must be involved in determining the routes the LHVs will be allowed to take.

Hesse expects that a national decision regarding the conditions for the trial will be taken by the summer.
