Truck Pavement Factors - The Truck Manufacturer's Viewpoint 881842
The truck transportation industry is a vital part of the economy and social structure of many countries. It is in society's best interest to encourage the most efficient, low cost, and reliable truck transportation system possible.
The system is made up of two major components, trucks and highways - the design of one affects the other in many and sometimes subtle ways.
