Dear IFRTT Forum subscriber, 

the bad news: the weather is depressingly grey, wet and cold. The credit 
crunch is also depressingly visible in industrial sectors and enterprises 
that are fundamentally healthy and well run. We know this will pass once 
the rust and dirt in the pipes have been cleaned out, but still. 

For 2009, transport technology developments and transport policy debates 
will be intense. 

The European road charging debate will continue, the EU member states could 
not agree under the French presidency. One major obstacle is the different 
views of countries regarding themselves as peripheral or transitional with 
respect to freight. 

We will see a world-wide intensification of research and discussion on heavy 
duty vehicles and their impact on fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas 
generation. 

The debate on vehicle weights and dimensions will continue. Denmark started 
trials with the so called modular concept a couple of weeks ago, four EU 
countries are now using this. 

Yesterday the National Transport Commission of Australia released its 
discussion paper on a review of the Performance Based Standards: www.ntc.gov.au , 
see News Room. From the summary: "PBS is seen as an important element ... which 
will enable continuous productivity gains and technological improvement, whilst 
meeting reasonable safety, road asset protection and environmental standards." 
A Regulatory Impact Statement on this is expected late 2009. 

PBS and its development will certainly be one of the topics at the 11th 
International Symposium on Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology, HVTT11. It will 
take place in Melbourne, Australia, 15 - 17 March 2010. The theme is "Heavy 
vehicles - balancing competing needs". This is immediately prior to the 
International Truck, Trailer and Equipment show at the same place. 

Please connect to www.hvttconference.com for more information and the first 
call for papers. And tell your friends and associations. 

Have a peaceful Christmas and drive safely, 

Anders Lundström, IFRTT president
