In the 1980s, trucks became even more sophisticated. Most cabs were modelled on the Volvo F10/F12/Globetrotter. Engines became better, stronger and, above all, more environmentally-friendly. And with increased use of air suspension systems, roads, goods and drivers enjoyed a much more comfortable life.
Furthermore, with the introduction of new legislation and the continuing process of international harmonisation, not only were trucks able to provide optimal transport efficiency as a sole means of transport, but also in combination with other forms of transportation such as railways, shipping and air transport.
