The new 18-tonner trucks consist of seven Nissan UD40 prime movers. Its new Euro2 engines are fitted with additional safety features for the drivers, whereas the ergonomically designed dashboards are much more advanced with comfortably larger cabins.

A refrigeration unit Carrier TS500 with -290C capability has been fitted to these trucks and features two compressors which enable it to function independently. This allows refrigeration in two compartments with different temperature settings. The new trucks are equipped with a Wireless Temperature Reader that enables real-time temperature monitoring by sending information to the CCN monitoring station.

“Data-Cold”, a temperature monitoring device is also available in the new trucks. It records temperature from the initial stage (loading) until the final stage (unloading) and a printout can also be made available to customers.

Flooring of the refrigerated compartment now uses raised chequered plates which is more refrigeration-effective. Silicone air curtains and internal lighting are additional features as are mechanical security seals which will now be employed to replace the manual plastic seals for security enhancement. In order to provide a sense of ownership, two drivers will be dedicated to a truck. This new arrangement will further enhance pride and performance of drivers, who now described as “Ambassadors” of CCN.
