Making refrigeration transport more cost-effective than ever- Even with electric motors.

Making refrigerated transportation more profitable and more efficient than ever! Even with electric motors.

The fast way to save up to 20 % on fuel consumption. Permanently efficient.
With our aerodynamically optimized refrigerated truck bodies: The KRESS body CoolerBox2.0 has proven this over and over again – for over 10 years.

Fuel efficiency of our refrigerated vans and trucks has been greatly improved with a view towards sustainability. The aerodynamically designed refrigerated body CoolerBox2.0 is a major component in KRESS efficiency.  It doesn't matter what kind of motor the refrigerated vehicle is being powered by.


Joachim Kress, Managing Director of the refrigerated vehicle company explains: "The laws of physics governing air flow and aerodynamics, which we have taken advantage of in the optimization of our outstanding aerodynamic design, hold true for all motors.  Our customers will profit from the Efficiency advantages of the CoolerBox2.0 regardless of the motor or chassis used.  A KRESS CoolerBox2.0 body can always be recognized by its aerodynamic design- on by the receipt for fuel."

In 2016  KRESS already presented its first 18 ton E-Truck  And in 2018 the first StreetScooter with a CoolerBox2 body. KRESS has also produced refrigerated trucks with CNG gas motors.

We would like to share an example for E – as in Electric and Efficient: KRESS is now working with ORTEN Electric Trucks.

The e-expert from the Eifel has a lot of experience with electrically-driven vehicles. Particularly suitable for emission-free and whisper-quiet logistics in the city or for local transport.

Swift and mobile like a gazelle:the new fully electric ORTEN refrigerated vehicle CityCooler E46 GAZELLE, with KRESS CoolerBox2.0 deep-freeze body and Carrier Xarios refrigeration unit.

What does fully electric mean? The refrigerated vehicle and the cooling unit are both powered exclusively by electric energy, both stationary and driving modes. Truly electrifying. Ecologically and economically efficient.

Has an astonishing range of about 200 km while operating as a deep-freeze vehicle. Also via recuperation of the braking energy. Top speed of about 85 kph.

The battery is fully and safely charged in only 3 and a half hours. Works with every 380 volt electrical outlet. Mobile Wallbox unit included in delivery package.

Outstanding feature: the  payload of 1000 kg, owing to the weight-optimized and highly insulated  KRESS refrigerated body. The vehicle can be driven by all those possessing a B class driver's license.

Bei KRESS nennt man das Nutzlast-Effizienz. Entscheidend für wirtschaftlich rentable Liefertouren.
