Rigid trucks are often used to resupply shops in cities and manoeuvre through the small access roads at shopping centres. After all, a rigid truck is small and far more agile than a large distribution trailer. With VSE electronic steering systems you can achieve the same turning radius with a ‘large’ distribution trailer as you do with a rigid truck, which means you can carry nearly twice as much and reach the same locations! This is also a much more sustainable solution: one towing vehicle in combination with a trailer equipped with an electronic steering system replaces two rigid trucks.Contact
The system enables a truck and trailer to achieve the same turning circle as a rigid truck. One city trailer with VSE Steering can replace two rigid trucks.
Put simply: further into the city with greater load capacity thanks to VSE Steering!
Traffic in our cities just seems to keep getting worse, and this makes it increasingly difficult to reach the city centres. Many times the supply routes in these cities are via narrow streets, so traditional solutions are often used, such as rigid trucks.
A city trailer equipped with VSE Steering can achieve the same turning circles as a rigid truck. This offers lots of options, because two rigid trucks can be replaced by one truck with a city trailer.
This means savings on fuel, a driver, the purchase of second vehicle and maintenance. The savings can be as high as €120,000 per year!
By eliminating a second vehicle, CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 40%. The energy required for the VSE steering is supplied indirectly, by the alternator.
This takes extra fuel, as does the extra load that a truck with a trailer has to carry. But this is always more efficient than the equivalent load divided over two rigid trucks.
The truck with the city trailer follows precisely in the path of the rigid truck.
