The Eurotran delivery vehicle developed and designed by Iveco with Ogle Design of the UK has advantages and limitations for the physical distribution and delivery of goods. The Eurotran concept aims to build a truck which has the capacity of a normal truck with the user friendliness of a van. It includes a very low floor to make it easy to get in and out of the cab and load-space. It also has a swivelling seat so that the driver can turn away from the steering wheel when he needs to focus on office tasks. The design and conception of the Eurotran is predicted to contribute to improving the efficiency of multi-drop urban distribution.
