The recently launched Terberg Urban Safety Logistics Vehicle is taking pride of place on the manufacturer's stand at the Freight in the City Expo 2017.

The 18-tonne refrigerated truck was designed in conjunction with Terberg’s recently acquired sister company Dennis Eagle and bodybuilder Gray & Adams.

The vehicle is designed to go beyond the current trend for low-entry, high-visibility trucks and create a complete package to enable safe, quiet and efficient urban deliveries.

The truck is based on Dennis Elite 4x2 rigid chassis and has a Volvo D8K 280bhp Euro-6 engine and Allison MD3000 six-speed automatic gearbox.

It also features the low-noise, low-emission Carrier TRS Twin Cool undermount 2CPT refrigeration system as standard, which is fitted to a Gray & Adams dual compartment reefer body with an internal moveable bulkhead.

The walk-through cab has seating for a driver and two passengers, with storage for extra kit. Nearside access is through a bus-style full length glass panel folding door, giving direct vision capability.

Another safety feature is the Dhollandia 500kg side loading lift, incorporated into the rear nearside corner of the body to form the load floor, which complements the standard Dhollandia tail-lift.

The truck is also installed with the latest Mobileye Shield + collision avoidance system, which combines proximity intrusion information from around the vehicle, removing the need for the driver to monitor individual cameras.
