At this year’s CV Show Terberg DTS UK, together with its newly acquired sister company Dennis Eagle, joined forces with leading bodybuilder Gray & Adams, to launch its first ever refrigerated Urban Safety Logistics vehicle.
Unveiled at the show by Alisdair Couper, Terberg DTS’s Managing Director, this Terberg designed Urban Safety truck is the first refrigerated truck from the Terberg Group and has been designed to meet the demanding and constantly changing needs of urban supply chain logistics.
Based on the Dennis Eagle 4×2 Elite 6 11.8m rigid chassis with a Volvo D8K 280hp Euro VI power unit and Allison MD3000 6-speed automatic gearbox, the Terberg designed temperature controlled 18 tonne rigid features the popular Dennis low entry cab. The truck was shown for the first time at the show alongside the Terberg DT183LE low entry distribution shunter tractor that has taken the market by storm since its launch two years ago, also at the CV Show.
With direct vision capability through full-length glass panels for increased visibility and awareness and safety for cyclists, the walk-through cab enhances driver safety as the driver does not have to exit the vehicle into oncoming traffic.
The Terberg truck features the low noise, low emission Carrier TRS Twin Cool undermount 2CPT refrigeration system as standard, fitted onto a Gray & Adams dual compartment reefer body with an internal moveable bulkhead. With a curved roof and internal body length of 7750mm, the G&A body has a volume of 45m3.
The Urban Safety Vehicle from Terberg is specified with a host of operational features that are designed to enhance the safety and performance of the driver as well as being ideally suited to the complex requirements of today’s urban distribution deliveries.
The vehicle features the Mobileye Shield+ collision avoidance system for preventing collisions between vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRU’s) including pedestrians and cyclists. Also featured on the vehicle are lane change and distance control systems.
The newly designed Vue CCTV system is also fitted to the truck, allowing the vehicle’s journey to be recorded back at a central command centre and again highlighting areas of potential danger for cyclists and pedestrians.
Full side length scene lighting is fitted to the vehicle so that when the vehicle is static, the nearside is illuminated during the vehicle unloading procedure.
The new Dhollandia 500kg side loading lift is incorporated into the nearside of the body to reduce congestion and enhance safety and speed for kerbside loading and unloading, whilst retaining a standard Dhollandia rear tail lift solution for loading docks.
