Around 80 million passenger cars are produced worldwide each year. They get to the dealerships by vehicle transport. A powerful truck combined with a light-weight trailer with high payload make the perfect team for this task.
To ensure that you can secure a leading position in vehicle transport, we offer you industry-specific solutions ex works, available as long-long, long-short, semitrailer, chassis or transporter versions.
Depending on the model and vehicle class, the horsepower-packed freight can have a value between one-hundred thousand and one million Euros, meaning that in addition to driver and traffic safety, the safety of the vehicles being transported also plays a central role.
MAN vehicle transporters are equipped with state-of-the-art safety and assistance systems: For example, active Continuous Damping Control (CDC) prevents heavy swaying and rocking of the load by actively adjusting the shock absorbers to the respective driving and load situation.
With an average weight of 1,500 kg per car, a fully loaded vehicle transporter has to move an overall weight of 15 tonnes from A to B.
To make sure that you can stay in the fast lane with your business, we put the brakes on costs with various fuel saving measures: The electronic, manually operated gearbox MAN TipMatic® calculates the optimal gear-shift strategy based on various indicators. The GPS-guided cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise® recognises inclines and downward slopes up to three kilometres ahead and adjusts the driving style accordingly. This means you can drastically reduce your fuel consumption.
Vehicle transport is an extremely lucrative niche business in which a lot of providers compete for the next order.
To ensure that you can leave your competition behind, we have equipped our vehicles with innovative efficiency systems that help to substantially bring down your costs. For example, our GPS-guided cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise® saves you up to 6% fuel. Our electronic, manually operated gearbox MAN TipMatic® can save you another 9%.
More about MAN EfficientCruise®
In order to transport as many vehicles as possible at once, it is essential to make optimal use of the space available on the loading deck.
To ensure that you can load more vehicles and make every run even more economical, we offer special driver’s cabs with a roof that is lowered by 190 mm and has a slope of 16 degrees to optimally accommodate any superstructure. If you are looking for a complete solution, simply opt for our transporter chassis 6x2 LL ex works.
Since a large percentage of transported vehicles is exported, drivers of vehicle transporters often have long journeys that require them to be on the road for several days. They either deliver the vehicles directly or act as a transfer shuttle for onward transport by train, ship, or plane.
To ensure that your drivers can feel right at home even on longer journeys, we offer you not only the largest driver’s cab in Europe but also a broad range of comfortable alternative driver’s cab versions. Optimal freedom of movement, specious stowage options, comfortable beds and further amenities offer a whole new level of convenience.
