The European Modular System (EMS) is a concept applied in road transport allowing combinations of existing load units (modules) to be used in longer and sometimes heavier vehicle assemblies on certain roads. EMS improves the efficiency of road transport thus reducing its environmental impact. After long negotiations, the EU has reached a compromise allowing the use of longer and heavier vehicles throughout the European network on the condition of using existing standardized EU modules: the so-called EMS. Papers issues related to the EMS, through an evaluation of the coming changes and comparison of different systems, are welcome for presentation. For more details, see here.
