MAN trucks for cargo transport - packed with efficiency.

Whether haulage for retail, moving companies or parcel delivery services: If you transport cargo, all types of goods must reach their destination safely and on time - from one pallet up to a full truck load. However, heavy inner-city traffic, narrow access routes and double parking make delivering the ordered goods in large cities especially difficult and require precise manoeuvring.

Thanks to their low loading dock, customised gear-shift strategies, fuel efficient engines and special bodies for haulage as standard, MAN trucks lift your transport efficiency in cargo transport to a new level.

Your challenge. Our solution.

Maximum load volume

When transporting petrol, diesel, heating oil and gas, the only thing that counts is what is inside the tank. Because these goods are invoiced by the quantity delivered. This means: the more load a vehicle can transport, the better the revenue. Each additional litre brings additional profit.

High payload

We consistently invest in light-weight construction to make sure that you can carry more load per trip. With a full tank and industry-specific equipment, our tank and silo trucks still put a weighty advantage on the road. For you this means: high increase in payload and consequently larger profits.

Tough competition

The market for the transport of dangerous goods is associated with more expenditures in terms of safety than other areas of the transport sector. There is high competitive pressure. If you want to have an edge for the next order, it is essential to increase the payload and at the same time reduce the fuel consumption.

Cost-cutting efficiency technologies

To make sure that you can stay in the fast lane with your business, we put the brakes on costs with various fuel saving measures: The electronic, manually operated gearbox MAN TipMatic® calculates the optimal gear-shift strategy based on various indicators. The GPS-guided cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise® recognises inclines and downward slopes up to three kilometres ahead and adjusts the driving style accordingly. This means you can drastically reduce your fuel consumption.

Payload versus safety

In the tough payload business, top marks are scored by body solutions with a low unladen weight. However, especially the transport of liquids and gases requires robust bodies which provide maximum safety.

First class is standard

We fulfil your high demands on safety and efficient vehicle bodies. MAN offers various custom-made solutions, e.g. for milk tankers and tanker trucks, as standard ex works. Individual customer requirements are implemented by MAN Individual to the highest professional and technical standards.

High demands and tough regulations

The highest priority in road traffic is the safety of all road users. Increasing traffic density places growing demands on truck drivers - in urban areas as well as on the motorway. A special case in terms of safety is the transport of dangerous goods - one of the most tightly controlled transport sectors of all.

Maximum safety standards

MAN dangerous goods transporters are equipped with a digital tachograph as well as a fire skirt, a battery-emergency-off switch and a tanker socket on board. In addition, all MAN trucks feature intelligent safety systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control, a Lane Guard System and Advanced Emergency Braking System, as well as the attention assist system MAN AttentionGuard for optimum protection of your driver and other road users.

Limited access routes

Inside cities, small towns and villages, conditions can be pretty narrow and cramped at times. This calls for vehicles which are easy to steer and manoeuvre.

Optimal manoeuvrability

With short wheelbases and steered trailing axles, our vehicles have a particularly small turning circle. Manoeuvring in tight spaces is supported by the gearshift programs DM, RM of our automated gearbox MAN TipMatic®.
