CHEREAU - Refrigerated vehicles - Our semi-trailers designed for sea/road transport


CHEREAU's combined sea/road semi-trailers




Combined sea/road transport calls for equipment that can be used on ferries. It must be easy to hitch and unhitch, have sufficient ground clearance to use ship access ramps and be able to be secured inside the hold.

CHEREAU's Ferry-C semi-trailer: combined sea/road refrigerated transport



Ferry-C is a chassis-body unit, which can be used for both sea and road transport. Based on a Chassis-C Special Refrigeration Chassis for road, it is modified using a broad coupler plate (surface or flush mounted) making it easier to hitch and unhitch the tractor unit. The running gear's suspension travel is restricted to prevent the suspension cushions being sheared off when there are major height differences. The leg stands are fitted with roller feet, to compensate for the stresses caused by hitching and unhitching on the fly. 2 x 4 external hitches comply with standard ISO 9367 and allow the semi-trailer to be secured in the hold. The bolt-on, galvanised rear underride bar is higher, with 2 protective shoes. The chassis structure is designed to prevent entry by illegal migrants. The body displays all the advantages of the INOGAM model and is suitable for all kinds of loads.




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.

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 reservoir 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.




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.







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.
