CHEREAU - Refrigerated vehicles - Our rail/road semi-trailers


CHEREAU's combined rail/road semi-trailers




Combined rail/road transport calls for specific equipment with refrigerated swap bodies placed on a chassis for road transport and on a train bogie for rail transport. The body must "take on board" the fuel tank and be "independent" of its chassis. It must also be specially designed for repeated transshipment operations using grab cranes.

CHEREAU MobilRail-C: refrigerated rail/road transport



This is a combination of a chassis and a mobile body, which allows it to be transported both by rail and road. The chassis is specific, in order to able to move either with or without its body. The body is also specific, with handling zones for loading grabs and incorporating the refrigeration unit at the front making it independent. The MobilRail-C is EN12410 approved for use on the entire European rail network.







Flex-C Led


Rear lights are frequently damaged during manoeuvres and backing up to docks, and this poses a real road safety problem. Given the frequency of this problem, CHEREAU has developed Flex-C LED, an extremely robust patented rear light system, which retracts when it comes into contact with an obstacle. It is equipped with LED technology, whose usable life is significantly longer than that of traditional bulbs.









The Bumper-C, patented by CHEREAU, is the "ultimate weapon" for protecting the rear of your vehicle when backing up to docks. With an innovative design, it absorbs the energy of an impact and acts as a shock absorber. The Bumper-C allows lifting and lowering manoeuvres to be carried out by the vehicle at a dock without any risk of shearing or distortion. The Bumper-C is acclaimed by carriers, who manage considerable savings on maintenance and repairs to the rear frames of their vehicles. It is fitted on more than 90% of CHEREAU's chassis.





RearDetect-C CHEREAU



The RearDetect-C reversing radar is the perfect solution for backing up to docks in complete safety. This system detects obstacles, provides an audible warning during a manoeuvre and automatically stops the vehicle. Thanks to its 3 sensors, the radar detects an obstacle within 3 metres of the rear of the vehicle. When the obstacle is located at a specific distance (preset between 30 and 100 cm), the system automatically applies the vehicle's brakes until it comes to a standstill, without any action on the part of the driver.






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 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.
