MAN trucks for food transport - efficiency à la carte

Whether fresh or frozen goods - food transport is a temperature-sensitive operation that is turned into a particular logistic challenge by strict hygiene and environmental restrictions. MAN trucks for food transport combine powerful cooling units with maximum payload,

high manoeuvrability, easier loading and exemplary environmental sustainability - meaning that you can leave behind the competition with coolly calculated offers.

Your challenge. Our solution.

No interruptions to the cooling chain

Transporting temperature-controlled goods is a delicate task. After all, meat, fish and milk products as well as frozen goods must always reach there destination at their optimum temperature. In order to fulfil the quality requirements for the transport of delicate food, refrigerated goods vehicles have to be optimally prepared for their task.

Industry-specific equipment

MAN is cooperating closely with all leading manufacturers of cooling machines. No matter whether it is a front-wall mounted unit with diesel drive, generator drive or compressor drive or an underfloor unit - we offer you optimal solutions to ensure that your refrigerated goods vehicles always perform at their best. For this, we provide a designated interface for the installation of additional units. For example, many vehicle versions come prepared for installation of a FRIGOBLOCK alternator. Meaning you can always count on getting your goods to their destination at the right temperature.

Height-constrained access routes

Deliveries in urban and residential areas are distinguished by stop and go traffic, tight access routes and a tense parking situation. What makes this even more difficult is that vehicles with refrigerated bodies are often too high for gateway passages and delivery areas that are similar to underground car parks.

Excellent urban usability

We offer you the right cabs for refrigerated transport as series standard - meaning you can easily pass through access routes with height restrictions. For special cases, we also offer roof recesses. Short wheelbases and steered trailing axles provide a smaller turning circle and particularly good manoeuvring behaviour in heavy inner-city traffic.

Elaborate technology

Due to the elaborate, insulated construction and the cooling unit, bodies for refrigerated goods vehicles are technically more intricate compared to other closed bodies, meaning they are more time-intensive and costly.

Optimal bodywork preparation

MAN trucks for food transport are already prepared for the installation of cooling units ex works. Even the electrical components in the driver’s cab, such as the control module for external data exchange (KSM) and the fleet management system interface 2.0 (FMS) are already integrated in the vehicle.

Tough competitive struggle

Since the margins for the transport of refrigerated goods are higher than for other goods in the food transport industry, the competition in this area is particularly tough. If you want to stay ahead of the race for the next lucrative order and be in a top position, it is essential to offer higher transport capacities than the competition.

Unrivalled payload advantage

Each kilo of vehicle weight less means more profit for you. To ensure that you can transport more foodstuffs per load, we develop our vehicles with focus on light-weight construction. Thanks to their unrivalled payload advantage, MAN trucks up your profits in the food transport business.
