Our Brands

Truck Corp Refrigerated Bodies range fall under three major brands. EURO, Premium and Acme.

Euro

The Maserati of Refrigerated Bodies. The EURO can carry the largest pay loads in Australia, typically 20% better than a standard Fibreglass body.

It also has a 25% improvement in insulation capability using innovative wall panel production. Lowest refrigeration fuel consumption only with a Truck Corp New European body.

Panels and subframe are precision engineered not hand laid using old technologies. All CAD drawn and machine made componentry.

The only body in Australia certified to the prestigious German DIN quality standard, leaders in assessment.

Greatest flexibility for door opening technology, sliding opening doors and total side opening technology. Sleek external finish, no rivets showing, for best appearance and least aerodynamic wind drag resistance.

EXTRA Options available - Internal dividing walls with recessed load lock so Pallets can fit down each side of the divide. Internal dividing walls sliding and adjustable the length of the body. Double deck loading technology for maximum use of the body space.

Premium

The Premium refrigerated body is Aussie built. It is called Premium because that is what it is. It uses the more modern, thicker, Polyurethene in between panels making it structurally stronger and giving it better insulation.

Acme

LIGHT WEIGHT, LOW COST IMPORT with POLYSTERENE INSULATION. A more cost effective option is our ACME brand imported from China. With polystyrene insulation these bodies are light weight and low cost.

Vehicles

We buy direct from the dealers and in large quantities. We also manufacture refrigerated vehicles for dealers. This means we have buying power and can get an equal or better deal on a whole truck, body and refrigeration package. All just one stop for you!

We are happy to fit your body on any cab chassis you need. We can also give you some recommendations on what will work best for you and your business based on how you use your refrigerated truck. Our sales teams have worked with and for dealers for most of their professional lives. This quality personal experience can help you select the right vehicle based on size, power, capacity and comfort.

Trucks from a 2 Pallet up to a 16 Pallet.

Vans that are a customisable and compact option.

Utes in Low Height, Standard Height and High Height.

Body Types

A refrigerated body normally consists of expanded foam insulation sandwiched between two external skins. The most popular insulation is expanded polyurethane (PU) foam with cyclopentane as the blowing agent. Another popular insulation material is extruded polystyrene. Truck Corp offers both.

Panel Body

Is a body built with an aluminium sheet with polystyrene core. This has load bearing structural properties with low weight. Insulated panel bodies are low maintenance and most repairs can be carried out quickly as materials are easily available from local suppliers.

Fibreglass Body

Built using our machine engineered precision fiberglass process; Fibreglass bodies are the best option for the strongest relative insulation. Fiberglass bodies are 20-30% more thermally efficient than panel bodies. Fiberglass bodies use less fuel, electricity and cost less to maintain.

Duragal Frames

All our base and rear frames use Duragal frame internally and externally to reduce the rust risk. Once the frames are bolted and sealed properly this makes sure no moisture can get in.

Latest Technology Machine Precision Engineered Fiberglass Bodies

Our bodies are completely machine engineered with precision. They are not hand laid and hand finished as this is old technology. We use the latest vacuum technology to ensure the Fiberglass keeps the structural integrity of the final product making it stronger, resilient and easier to repair.

Refrigeration Systems

The refrigeration system

We make sure that when we are installing the refrigeration system we use the evacuation process to stop leaks and moisture. We offer different refrigeration systems from Thermo King, Carrier and Truck Corp’s own brand of refrigeration system.

  • OFF ENGINE DRIVE (OED) – Runs off the Engine of the Truck. This is the smallest and low cost option.
  • DIESEL – The diesel option is bigger and capable of much more capacity. If the unit is large enough, OED may not achieve the temperatures that you need and diesel is recommended.
  • EUTECTIC – Runs off electricity. This is one of the newest technologies in refrigeration and will save you money in the long run. Check out our page on EUTECTIC REFRIGERATION BODIES to find out how this happens.
  • SOLAR – Solar Refrigeration has entered the Australian Market and Truck Corp wants to help . The environmentally friendly option is the way of the future.

SOLAR – REFRIGERATION OF THE FUTURE

Solar refrigeration cutting edge technology, tested around the world now coming to Australia.

New generation solar panels are highly efficient and able to operate independently without the aid of off-engine driven or direct drive system, unlike current conventional methods of operation like Carrier or Thermo King. üSolar Refrigeration is able to operate up to four hours with a fully charged battery even in total darkness. üConstant temperature is achieved without variation in engine speeds so product temperature remains at set point even when the vehicle is stopped or parked.

Solar refrigeration remains operating throughout a delivery at full efficiency. üSolar is an ideal solution for high demand pharmaceutical deliveries or other sensitive products demanding minimal fluctuations in temperature. üPerfect for inner city or shopping centre deliveries that require engines be switched off while goods are being loaded or unloaded in under cover or indoor loading docks. üGovernments and local councils encourage the use of environmentally friendly solutions and often offer incentives to for more sustainable carbon neutral outcomes.

Solar refrigeration can also be utilised as a hybrid in tandem with conventional off-engine or diesel refrigeration. üDiesel refrigeration could be used to operate a Freezer compartment and Solar used to operate a chiller compartment. üThis dual usage creates confidence for operators in adopting this new technology whilst still providing the cost cutting benefits of free energy from the sun. üTax benefits from the "ATO" and Incentives from the "Greenhouse Office" may also provide additional confidence for operators to transition to the new method of operation.

SOLAR Flexible Options *ELECTRIC Drive *BATTERY Drive *ENGINE Drive

Diesel Refrigeration using a litre an hour of fossil fuel at $1.29 per litre on each delivery run burns $4000 per year – Solar refrigeration only $600 a year using free and renewable energy with zero carbon or emissions.

  • solar refrigeration works when engine is off
  • quiet in operation with no fumes
  • works without mains power or vehicle engine

A fleet of 10 Trucks then would contribute $34000 back into a business collecting free energy with no tax to pay and no harm to the environment A fleet of 100 Trucks could save a third of a million dollars per year in costs What other technology exists to create this degree of cost reduction?

Fully electric powered trucks and vans are the future of deliveries into cities with ever increasing populations and traffic density SOLAR refrigeration ideally matches electric propulsion Together the two technologies tick all of the boxes.

  • Low cost
  • Low noise
  • Low emission
