Competition and cost pressure, tight schedules, increasing traffic - the challenges of long-haul transport are tough. Our industry-specific vehicle concepts help you to master these challenges in the best way possible.
MAN long-haul transport vehicles combine exemplary economic efficiency with outstanding reliability, maximum payload and excellent driving comfort. Leave your competition behind - with transport efficiency that sets new standards in long-haul transport.
While expenses for salaries, taxes and toll fees are continuing to rise, profits in long-haul transport are rather in decline due to the heavy competition. In order to be successful against this kind of backdrop, the total cost of ownership of a vehicle has to be kept as low as possible. The most important determining factor here is the fuel consumption, which makes up approximately 30% of your TCO.
Our D26 and D38 engines offer you even more performance and more torque than their predecessors - and that with a reduction in fuel consumption. For even more economic efficiency, our MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 is the choice for you. Thanks to its fuel-saving components, it saves you an extra 6.35% in comparison to its predecessor.
The global average distance covered in long-haul transport throughout Europe each day is approximately 500 km. Choosing the right gears and changing gears in good time can lead to substantial fuel savings on each route. However, this savings potential is often not fully exploited.
Our MAN TipMatic® gearbox reduces your fuel consumption by up to 9% by automatically selecting the optimal gear-shift strategy. Additional savings of up to 6% can be achieved with our MAN EfficientCruise® GPS-guided cruise control system, which adjusts speed and gear-shift timing to the route ahead of you. The MAN EfficientRoll function, which automatically shifts to neutral on downhill gradients, reduces fuel consumption even further.
According to industry experts, the revenue generated from online sales will see record-breaking increases in the coming years. The majority of goods is transported with trucks. Even though modern trucks put significantly less strain on the environment, overall pollution levels are rising due to the increasing amount of vehicles.
MAN trucks transport your goods with the environment in mind: The combination of fuel efficient common rail injection, diesel particulate filter (DPF/CRT), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and a two-stage exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) reduces CO2 and nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 40%. If you want to be even more environmentally friendly, why not use biodiesel for your MAN fleet?
Competition in long-haul transport is tough. Every order counts. Downtime due to unplanned repairs mean a loss in profit. After all, a vehicle only makes money when it is out on the road. This is why high fleet availability is a top priority in the transport business.
Since 2012, MAN trucks have been earning good results in the TÜV report. Our vehicles have proven to have a low fault ratio for all safety-relevant components, such as vehicle body, chassis, light system, brake system, driveline and visibility. Our particularly reliable and durable vehicles keep your fleet on the road to success.
The job of a truck driver in long-haul transport is characterised by long and irregular working hours, constant time and deadline pressure, as well as high levels of physical strain. In order to keep drivers healthy and efficient, their work place must be optimally equipped.
For example the cockpit, with intuitive switch concept, ergonomic comfort seat, practical stowage compartments and air conditioning system, is optimally tuned to fulfil the requirements of long haul routes. The rest area of the spacious driver’s cab is equipped with high-quality beds, fitted with slatted frames as standard, and comes with plenty of stowage and storage options for maximum comfort.
