Intelligent Access Program Pilot in Sweden
The pilot of the IAP in Sweden follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration) and TCA in 2012.
The IAP was identified by Swedish Government and industry representatives as a low-cost, 21st century approach to the management of heavy vehicle access and compliance.
TCA has worked closely with Trafikverket and a consortium of stakeholders, including Transportstyrelsen (Swedish Transport Agency), Lund University, CLOSER, the forest research institute Skogforsk, and heavy vehicle manufacturers and active participants Scania and Volvo.
The pilot is demonstrating the IAP’s ability to increase access entitlements for High Capacity Transports on the Swedish road network, by ensuring that productivity, safety and environmental outcomes are advanced in unison.
