CHEREAU's semi-trailers for fresh fruit & vegetables



Although their carriage is not regulated by the ATP, fresh fruit & vegetables are often transported in temperature controlled vehicles in order to guarantee a high level of quality. Often exported far from where they are produced, in specific packaging with very tall pallets, they need long distance type semi-trailers with a large usable height.

Châssis-C Spécial Frigo CHEREAU



Refrigerated semi-trailers are specific in that their permissible overall width is 2,600 mm. As a specialist bodywork manufacturer, CHEREAU has developed a specific chassis which is wider than a traditional chassis and guarantees exemplary road holding whatever the nature of the goods carried. As with all CHEREAU products, the chassis guarantees quality and adaptability to the customer's specific needs. There is also a wide choice of axles, braking systems and rears. A recessed version of the chassis offers the benefit of 50 mm additional usable height.





Réservoir de groupe polyéthylène-C CHEREAU

refrigeration unit Tank-C


CHEREAU's reservoir is specially designed to sit behind the leg stands on a semi-trailer chassis and allows a pallet carrier to be fitted. It has a capacity of 250 litres and lasts for more than 80 hours, which is sufficient for long distance operations. This unique tank has a filling opening on each side, protected by a lockable cap, and a standard anti-siphoning device. The direct reading gauge located on its left side (right side, as an option) is also compatible with the electric fuel level measuring devices for refrigeration units.









A refrigerated body must be both powerful and robust. CHEREAU bodies benefit from a design that combines excellent insulation with specific assemblies, offering the highest performance level on the market and strength that has become the industry benchmark.


CHEREAU produces bodies with recessed chassis and a thin roof for transporting fruit & vegetables, in order to ensure that the greatest possible usable height can be used.





AirEfficient-C CHEREAU



This ventilation duct system, developed by CHEREAU, enables the same temperature to be maintained, to the nearest degree, throughout the entire body. It is particularly useful for very sensitive foodstuffs. Beyond the qualitative aspect, AirEfficient-C enables better use to be made of the refrigeration unit and helps to significantly reduce the refrigeration unit's fuel consumption, its usage time and, consequently, its maintenance.






Grille de protection face avant CHEREAU

Protective grilles


To optimise proper air recycling within the body, CHEREAU has developed a vertical grille on the front bulkhead providing a blown air flow rate of more than 4,150 m3 per hr. As a result, it improves the performance of the refrigeration unit and helps to maintain an even temperature within the body. It provides protection for the vehicle's front bulkhead.








INOGAM Door Lock




INOGAM bodies with hinged doors can be fitted with an integrated CHEREAU anti-theft system. Based on a "drawer" type padlock, it is inaccessible to tools generally used to break in to trucks (bolt cutters, grinders, crowbars, etc.). It is also protected against impacts and spray.






Porte-palette CHEREAU

Pallet carrier


With a very strong steel design, the CHEREAU pallet carrier holds 36 pallets measuring 80x120. Located within the chassis wheelbase, it is spray-proof (water, sand, salt, etc.). With its retractable doors on the top, it offers easy access for handling pallets. It can be adapted for UK pallets (100x120) and is available in a fully open "basket" version, it is equipped with an anti-theft device.
