Wabash rolls out its first line of truck bodies

| Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Wabash National, widely known for its trailers, has added a new operation to its business. The Lafayette, Ind.-based company has recently introduced its new line of truck bodies.

After 30 years in the trucking equipment industry, Wabash debuted its first line of high-performance dry and refrigerated truck bodies at the International Foodservice Distributors Association Distribution Solutions Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. According to a press release, the new truck bodies are designed to reduce maintenance costs, enhance productivity and maximize the life of equipment.

Refrigerated bodies claim a 25 percent improvement in thermal efficiency when compared to more conventional designs. Wabash reefer bodies are built with a patent-pending composite panel and use state-of-the-art bonding assembly technology.

Dry truck bodies are built with Wabash’s DuraPlate composite panels. Trailer grade components and designs yield added performance and longevity, according to Wabash.

Increasing regulations within the trucking industry were considered when designing the bodies. A rear underride guard compliant with U.S. and Canadian standards is one of the features in the new line of truck bodies.

Dry and reefer freight truck bodies will be available for Class 6, 7 and 8 chassis. For more information, visit WabashTruckBodies.com.
