Which advantages are we talking about ? Well, some can be perceived with just one glance:

The rounded edges at the fore of the truck body. These curves were optimized using simulation calculations, practical trials and test drives.

The aerodynamic design of the refrigerated truck body supports streamling of the base vehicle. In addition, here are a few important details:

  • for the most part smooth, gapless exterior surface of the refrigerated truck body,
  • recessed clearance lights at the head of the vehicle,
  • inset or recessed brackets which means
  • doors flush with the surface.

The result: Cw value, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions were considerably reduced

Other equally important advantages don't strike you right away but are still extremely effective and useful for every refrigerated vehicle consumer interested in economical efficiency:

Our CoolerBox2.0 is manufactured using DUROLITE panels. These composite panels-developed and produced by KRESS- represent the foundation for outstanding payload efficiency of refrigerated vehicles:

  • excellent thermic insulation of refrigerated and deep-freeze truck bodies. The desired temperature is maintained for longer in the cargo area. The refrigeration unit does not need to run as often and thus lasts longer.
  • considerably lower net weight of the truck body allows for a much greater pay load and simply more cargo.

Cargo size is quite simply one of the most important criteria for das ist letztendlich mitentscheidend für die economical efficiency of transports.

The robust CoolerBox2.0 truck body usually lasts longer than a car does. It can simply be mounted on the next chassis.

This happens fairly often too! When changing the base vehicle and motor type, the CoolerBox2.0 can usually be removed and mounted on a new vehicle without a problem.

From this perspective, refrigeration vehicle experts KRESS also offer their customers a secure investment.

„Regardless of the type of motor chosen, a refrigerated vehicle mounted with a CoolerBox2.0 truck body is an investment with a good yield. Especially if you consider the entire life cycle (Total Costs of Ownership).

„Already at the last IAA 2016 we presented a refrigerated truck with an electric engine.", explains Joachim Kress. „And you can already see quite a few of our electric refrigeration vehicles on the road being used every day. In the end, it is all about providing our customers with careful and detailed expert advice. To this end, our specialists at the home office or our sales representatives are always ready to help with their practical experience and up-to-date know-how. .".
