Global transportation - A future fueled by change
Whether on land, at sea or in the air, you’ll find SSAB steel in transportation and infrastructure solutions that powerfully impact our world
At SSAB, we understand the challenges the transportation sector faces. Weight is a crucial issue, where every pound saved on a vehicle’s weight can be added to the load. When a product or vehicle weighs less, it consumes less fuel and benefits the environment. And the less steel that is needed and less waste generated, the more environmentally the vehicle becomes — a compelling benefit for OEMs and end users alike.
The global heavy transport sector faces a growing number of challenges over the next few decades. From tackling aging transport infrastructure and ever-tougher emissions legislation, to handling evolving government intervention and regulation, the heavy transport sector steers a tricky path towards a more sustainable transport future.
The biggest challenge facing the sector is an ever increasing global population and its demand for urbanization, clothing, food, goods and services: all of which are supplied, at some stage of the chain, by heavy transport.
Trailers make the perfect application for Strenx®, where you get more payload without increasing the total weight of the trailer.
Whatever you are building, Strenx® can make your products lighter, stronger and more sustainable.
Tipper bodies face exposure to severe wear and impact during their lifecycle. By using Hardox® you can substantially lower the lifecycle cost.
Containers benefit from using high-strength steel, especially when combined with the weathering steel properties that increase the corrosion resistance when the steel is exposed to the air.
With vehicles facing increasing demands on both fuel efficiency crash performance, the use of high-strength steel satisfies these often competing requirements.
A wide variety of components perform better when produced with high-strength steel in heavy transport.
