ABSTRACT
The article highlights the trucks featured at the European Road Transport Show in 2006. Chereau SAS has started what it calls the revolution in refrigerated delivery with the introduction of a new generation liquid carbon dioxide refrigerant. Another case in point is Lamberet's redesigned semitrailer, known as the SR2 Futura. Rohr's own version of the two-trailer EuroCombi is the Rohr Jumboliner which has a gross combination weight rating of 60 tonnes on seven axles. INSET: Another record year in Germany.
