We strive to continuously improve and further develop our products. In order for you to be kept up-to-date with the latest developments at KRESS, we often publish our news in trade publications. We have recently published the following:

„The refrigerated truck bodies of the CoolerBox2.0 line already bring two important advantages in the standard version ," explains Joachim Kress, Managing Director of specialist company KRESS Kühlfahrzeugbau.
Kress continues: „the aerodynamic design of refrigerated or insulated truck bodies is impossible to overlook. And Calculculations and Test drives have once again proven the considerable savings on fuel and reduced emissions. And of course the customers notice this advantage every time they look at their gas bills. Not something to be taken lightly given the price trends of fuel at the moment. ."
KRESS has developed its own DUROLITE panel technology in its own manufacturing center located in Meckesheim near Heidelberg. Using these highly insulating panels we manufacture refrigerated and deep-freeze truck bodies. In this way, KRESS can build among the lightest refrigerated truck bodies in Germany. And the same logistics rule applies to all: More cargo means more profit.
This payload efficiency of all KRESS Kühlfahrzeuge kann bei einer weiteren Herausforderung für die Kühllogistik helfen.
Tolls are said to increase on about 52000 km of Germany highways and federal roads. Also on inner-city roads. Avoids the tolls is practically impossible. From 1.1.2019 tolls will be calculated using a new calculation factor. i
From 7.5 tons GVW not only will the number of axles be a factor but also the total permissible weight. This means refrigeration vehicles over 18 tons GVW are about to be charged considerably more . Details on the German toll system can be found here: Mautänderungen
An important change is also worth noting. The weight class must be entered on the On-Board-Unit. For vehicles over 18 tons the nunber of axles must also be included. The driver also has a duty to do this. Forgetting to do this or giving false information can be expensive.
To this end KRESS has been manufacturing the right vehicles for several years already. More on commercial cargo giants at KRESS can be found here.
Our experts from the KRESS sales team are happy to help you in your selection of the right refrigerated vehicle for you. Please let us inform you on the various KRESS industry solutions for, among others:

„Temperature-controlled distribution transport requires useable refrigerated vehicle solutions, efficient to the last detail. Optimized for the use intended ", explainsJoachim Kress. The managing director of the refrigerate truck experts continues :
„Only in this way can our customers successfully reach their logistics goals in an economically and ecologically reasonably manner. Not just on the so-called 'last stretch'. But also on all the kilometers before that. A refrigerated vehicle has to function as a whole in a highly efficient fashion- and it has to perform at this level for several 100 000 kms which represents its life span. .".
Not to mention at the exhibits of our various business partners with whom KRESS Nutzfahrzeug GmbH has been working together for years.
The new refrigerated vehicles powered by CNG-motors (Compressed Natural Gas) are bound to attract a lot of interest. They offer economically and ecologically viable alternatives for distributor transport within the inner city as well as between regions.
The refrigerated StreetScooter StreetScooter, with an electric motor and electric refrigeration system was already a big hit at the INTERNORGA in the spring. With its aerodynamic body it represents an efficient option for all those in inner city transport who want to be both fast and 'clean'. And it looks great too.
The aerodynamic KRESS refrigerated truck bodies are also ideal for diesel motors of the latest models. Professional visitors at the IAA Commercial Vehicles can get a clear picture themselves of these innovative new possibilities.
And let's not forget one thing: the aerodynamic design of the KRESS refrigerated and thermal truck bodies reduces fuel consumption regardless of the type of motor.
Trucks from 7.5 tons must also pay tolls starting on 1st July 2018 on all federal roads.
What is to be done? Well, KRESS has had the corresponding refrigerated vehicle among its products for years already:
KRESS Fahrzeugbau GmbH is a mid-sized company which has been specializing for over 20 years in the development and production of economical, efficient refrigerated trucks and truck bodies of the highest quality. Located in Meckesheim, near Heidelberg we produce over 500 refrigerated vans, trucks and truck bodies to the specification of customers from a variety of industries. KRESS works together with all leading commercial vehicle manufacturers. KRESS delivers directly from our plant or via commercial vehicle retailers. We have service partners all over Germany as well as in neighbouring countries.
No one can overlook the trend to consolidate various product lines when supplying large-scale commercial customers. Multi-temperature refrigerated vehicles are obviously the right choice for an economically feasible solution ...
„One stop supplying of large-scale commercial customers in the food industry- for example, gastronomy, industrial kitchens, food retail service, gas stations, bakeries- who have a variety of products which all have to be kept at different temperatures can save a lot of kilometers in transportation and thus lead to real cost savings", concluded Joachim Kress, Managing Director of North-Baden refrigerated vehicle specialist KRESS. „Of course the refrigerated vehicles have to be properly equipped for the task! .".
The most important matter is that the goods ordered arrive at their destination in perfect and of course sanitary condition. An efficient refrigerated vehicle must, therefore, be better integrated in the logistics process.
This is especially true if the economic logistics principle 'one order, one delivery, one bill' is to be followed. For this to happen the efficient temperature-controlled vehicle has to become a part of the logistics IT system. A proven unbroken refrigerated delivery chain and best before date security are two important key words. With KRESS refrigerated vehicles almost all possibilities can be achieved.
We usually speak of 5 temperature zones in food logistics:
Refrigerated vehicles are usually employed with two or three temperature zones (3 chamber solution). Four are of course possible. The temperature zones are flexible, depending on the size of the cargo area, and can be adjusted according to the goods received for delivery.
After all, the gain in efficiency for the customer also depends on the details. For this reason, qualified expert assistance as well as working closely with KRESS customer advisers serve to put our customers on the path to investing in a refrigerated vehicle that offers a good return.
As one of the sponsors, KRESS supports the Sinheimer Tafel e. V. with the acquisition of an appropriate and modern refrigerated vehicle. Using the aerodynamic transporter-truck body CoolerBox2.0 the Sinsheimer Tafel is able to transport food properly and expertly. In our picture you can see Hans-Jürgen Poppe von der Sinsheimer Tafel on the right and Joachim Kress handing over the vehicle at the KRESS plant in Meckesheim,half-way between Heidelberg and Sinsheim. More on the Sinsheimer Tafel.

How will food be delivered in city centers in the future? In an economical and ecological way? Will our refrigerated vehicles be powered using conventional fuel, natural gas, hydrogen, electricity? Or will our vehicles be hybrid models?...
Trade visitors of the NUFAM 2017 could see for themselves just how efficient vehicles of KRESS Kühlfahrzeuge are. The same thing can now be said of fans of the MAN „Home, Speed Home"-Europa-Tour 2017 ...
The refrigerated vehicle specialist KRESS presented four vehicles at the end of September, at the NUFAM 2017, which are meant for transporting fresh produce as well as deep-freeze products. The specialist audience were clearly interested and impressed with what they saw. As a result, KRESS consultants were able to set up more than a few appointments- and not only with potential customers from Germany but also from France and Switzerland.
A top driving event with a greal deal of information but also entertainment to offer. Even fleet managers and operators find something to learn at the event. KRESS has been a certified refrigerated truck body manufacturer for MAN Truck & Bus AG for some time now and we are therefore proud to be part of the MAN European Tour 2017.
On Thursday,12.10.2017 in Germany, at the SVG Autohof Lohfeldener Rüssel, in 34253 Lohfelden/Kassel, on the A7/A49 motorways. And then at a variety of other locations.
This 18 ton trucks fitted with the latest refrigerated truck body CoolerBox2.0 Maxi TK provides space for 18 Euro-pallets or 30 moveable storage containers. So it's ideal for food and fresh produce logistics:
Furthermore, by continuing to focus on 'even more efficient', KRESS has been systemically developing its truck body concept. Our goal is to see to it that our customers are able to carry out their temperature-controlled transport even more economically. Our aim is for investing in refrigerated vehicles using KRESS truck bodies to pay for themselves as quickly as possible. Making money, instead of leaving it by the roadside.
Our CoolerBox2.0 refrigerated truck body has become even lighter than ever while remaining as robust as ever and providing the same outstanding level of insulation. In this way, the customer can save a lot on fuel with regard to the engine of the base vehicle and refrigeration unit. In addition, customers can increase their cargo loads.
On the one hand, you save on operating costs and on the other, you can increase the size of the payload being transported. A bonus for consumer and payload efficiency
And do we need to even mention that reduced fuel consumption translates into lower emissions?
„We place our emphasis on improvements and solutions which are important and useful for our customers“, explains Joachim Kress, General Manager of the family-run business.
He continues: „Those using refrigerated vehicles can all profit from improved fuel consumption efficiiency, payload efficiency as well as handling efficiency. We also strive to improve our range of equipment components. Investing in quality always pays off in the end.“.
KRESS Fahrzeugbau GmbH is a mid-sized company specializing in the development and manufacture of efficient refrigeration vehicles and truck bodies of the highest quality. At our plant in Meckesheim, near Heidelberg, we produce over 500 refrigerated vans, trucks and truck bodies a year for customers from a variety of industries.
