Abstract [en]

Transportation of cargo is crucial for the functioning of our society. In order to reach end customers road transportation with truck is required.

Heavy road transportation has increased. More than half of all truck drivers work with customer deliveries. These drivers can have up to 50 stops per day. The goods can weigh more than 1000 kg. The handling is done manually with a pallet truck. The varying context makes the work particularly heavy for the driver.

Loading and unloading is the most dangerous work a truck driver performs. The arms, back and legs are most vulnerable in this stressful job, according to "Löntagaren" nr 4/2006.

The goal of the project was to design a new product which can replace the pallet truck in order to improve the safety and ergonomics.
