French OEM, Chereau, is showcasing its developments in the temperature-controlled transport niche at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover.
At IAA, Chereau has taken this opportunity to “take stock” of its latest projects including the Chereau NEXT, the first multiplexed refrigerated semi-trailer; the INOGAM EVO, the multi-year program for the evolution of the Chereau product range; and the Chereau ROAD, a collaborative refrigerated semi-trailer of the future.
Chereau Event Communications Manager and Press Relations, Fanny Droal, said that the Chereau NEXT received a very enthusiastic welcome at last year's Solutrans event and won the silver medal of the 2017 Industrial Bodywork Innovation Award. The Chereau NEXT was awarded second place in the Smart Trailer category of the 2019 Trailer Innovation Award awarded at this year's IAA.
“This success is explained by the many advances proposed by Chereau NEXT in all fields: improved ergonomics for the driver; new safety equipment for the driver, quay staff and road users, optimal performance to ensure the cold chain under the most demanding operating conditions, unsurpassed tractor connectivity, diagnostic and telematics plugs.”
Droal explained that the Chereau NEXT also benefits from all the developments of the INOGAM EVO program.
“This multi-year program, which will be completed at Solutrans 2019, now offers a major step forward, thanks to the redesign of the trailer body and chassis, which allows an improved empty weight of 400kg for a three-axle trailer,” she said.
