Efficient refrigerated truck body saves considerably on fuel- even with trucks

Efficient refrigerated truck body saves considerably on fuel – even on trucks

Recent test drives undertaken by refrigerated truck body specialist KRESS  have once confirmed this result, using their truck body CoolerBox2.0 for their trials.

Let the results speak for themselves: if you extrapolate the test drive  (315 km motorway, valley) to 100.000 km , a figure which corresponds to the annual mileage you can expect in delivery service, you can expect fuel savings with the CoolerBox2.0 truck body of about 1.500 liters of diesel fuel. In this way CO2 emissions are also reduced by about. 4 tons. These kinds of figures will also certainly get fleet managers in refrigeration logistics to start doing their own calculations.

Here are the results of the test drive in the table below:

The aerodynamic design of the truck body plays an even more important role at high speeds, e.g.for 3,5 Ton vans. But even in the case of refrigerated trucks the improved aerodynamic design of the truck body reduces fuel consumption, despite speed limitations.

Aerodynamic Design for more economic consumption and smarter design

The aerodynamic design of KRESS refrigerated or deep-freeze truck bodies is apparent in the cleverly designed smooth curves on the bulkhead of the CoolerBox 2.0 with its inset LED marker lights. Side-doors are flush-mounted while the hinges of the rear doors are built into the door panels. These details improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle with the so-called pooling region at the rear being considerably reduced. A current simullation ( Strömungssimulation ) clearly demonstrates this advantage..

Weniger Gewicht, weniger Rollwiderstand, weniger Verbrauch, mehr Nutzlast

KRESS already introduced their refrigerated truck body CoolerBox2.0 at the last trade fair of the IAA. The improved aerodynamic design was not the only feature to impress experts from all areas of refrigerated logistics. The payload and loading capacity were also of great interest. .

„Owing to our very own die DUROLITE®- panel technology, our refrigerated truck bodies are, on the one hand, very robust, long-lasting and offer incredible insulation“, explains Geschäftsführer Joachim Kress , „on the other hand, our panels offer considerable advantages in weight reduction.“

This of course also contributes to reduced fuel consumption via reduced tire rolling resistance and lower acceleration forces. Important for transport is certainly the positive effect on the payload and the loading capacity. The CoolerBox2.0 can impress here as well.
