Commercial viability study of a vehicle scrapyard (2021)
The Support Project for the Competitiveness of Logistics Services for Trade ($18 million) provides for the renewal of the road transport vehicle fleet in particular, enabling passenger and goods road transport companies to renew their fleets and become more competitive.
Under this component of the project aimed at setting up a system for treating and recycling vehicles that are too old and that will be taken off the road, the study aims to assess the technical and commercial feasibility of a vehicle scrapyard meeting environmental and social standards, integrating both the organisational and financial dimensions of the value chain (governance, economic model, etc.) and the technical and operational dimensions (site, process description and layouts, guide drawings of the facilities and infrastructures). It covers the vehicles that will be removed from the vehicle fleet as part of the renewal programme, as well as any other vehicles destined for scrapping according to criteria to be defined with the competent authorities.
