If the truck and trailer combination weighs less, the possible payload and the economic efficiency of fleets increases. To make semi-trailer trucks lightweight, economical and efficient, SAF-Holland has reduced the weight of crucial components: The improved premium trailer axle, a drum-brake axle for 19.5” mega tyres, the convenient tyre pressure monitoring system and extra-light fifth wheels optimise the payload of articulated lorries.
When travelling across Europe, nearly all trailers on the road are equipped with telescopic landing gears from JOST.
The ROAD collaborative project, which enabled CHEREAU to produce its first hydrogen-powered semi-trailer, was finally realised at the Solutrans exhibition in November 2019. This project highlighted numerous technologies that were leveraged to develop ‘From ROAD to REAL’ – an ambitious program to take ROAD’s tech to the next level.
