In order to reduce costs and be more competitive in transport prices, the automotive industry has decided to replace some heavy materials by aluminium.
With this change, for each material loaded, the fuel will be more profitable, which means that more quantity of pieces and products will be transported by the same cost.
According to the International Association of Energy this will make the demand of transport get doubled in next decades.
Thanks to light weight of aluminium, for each kg that we reduce in the weight of the truck, we can add another kg. of load. In that way the clients will prefer to deal with transport companies that can carry more kg. in each trip, saving on trip numbers.
Another advantage with the aluminium is that it doesn’t produce corrossion, and it is very appreciated by the segment of tows for instance, who suffer from this problem.
