5 Most Scenic Routes in the World

Written by Ulrik Andersson, July 14, 2017

For most drivers, the road is rather a workplace than a source for relaxing experiences. Out of the world’s circa 18 million kilometres of paved roads, most are just transport roads offering nothing but insignificant surroundings. However, some drives offer such breath-taking sceneries, that many find a worthwhile trip for their own sake. What routes are the most scenic in the world is, of course, a matter of personal preferences, but here’s my pick of routes I’d like to drive for the scenery.

Is there an alternative to 4x4?

Written by Boel Haglund, October 5, 2016

When purchasing a new vehicle, 4x4 is a common option to consider. No wonder, it’s a familiar and well-tried solution with good features for safer driving – but it’s easy to ignore its weaknesses believing there’s no better alternative.However, when thinking about situations where traction is crucial for your operations, you may conclude that 4x4 is not the perfect solution, but rather a compromise.

In case your vehicles must make it in time on icy roads in harsh winter conditions – and when total cost of ownership is an issue – automatic tire chains may be a better choice for you.

I suggest you read the 4x4 vs. Onspot comparison guide and give it some extra thought. Deciding traction control for your vehicles shouldn’t be made by routine. That decision should be made for your fleet’s optimal cost-effectiveness!

Properly equipped vehicles adapted to different weather conditions and recommendations or laws may be crucial to ensuring that the shipment can be delivered as agreed. Many countries also have legal requirements for both winter tires and snow chains.
