For a Swiss transportation company, taking the issue of sustainability seriously is not just a question of attitude, but to a certain extent also a matter of survival, because no other country has such strict regulations. One of them reads: vehicles with over 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight are subject to the distance-related heavy vehicle fee (LSVA), which is based on distance covered, gross vehicle weight – and vehicle emissions. This means that operators opting for fuel-efficient Euro VI engines, and consequently reduced CO₂ emissions, stand to save money. Although this cash saving is available only in Switzerland, it is quite generally the case that more and more customers are attaching importance to transport services that generate as few CO₂ emissions as possible. This means that the new Actros with Euro VI engine can have a positive impact on a company's order books.
