Case details

Industry Trailers and body builders

The containers on this truck and trailer combination were upgraded from S235 standard steel to Strenx® 700MC, saving 560 kg per container. This increases the payload per trip by 1,680 kg for the total vehicle with three containers and also reduces the fuel consumption for the empty vehicle. Through an optimised design the wind drag is reduced, which further reduces the fuel consumption.
