Coolaire, JMC innovate traditional delivery trucks with fiberglass closed vans

Many businesses use delivery trucks in their daily operations. These trucks, often fitted out with aluminum-made vans, are typically utilized to distribute goods to their respective destinations.

While aluminum has been traditionally the main choice of materials for closed vans, fiberglass products are now starting to be used extensively in the fabrication of these structures in various parts of the globe. The upgrade, as many may regard it, provides modern solutions to the rising demands of logistics. Fiberglass makes the closed van more durable, economical, and lightweight compared to its aluminum counterpart.

Coolaire, the most widely used brand of refrigerated vans in the country, and JMC, the leading truck supplier in the Philippines, have teamed up to bring fiberglass bodies for dry items to the Filipino people. Simply called the Fiberglass Dry Van, this is Coolaire’s latest contribution to the logistics industry and is built according to the same world class procedures that its refrigeration systems are known for.

With more and more businesses shelving the aluminum vans for their delivery vehicles, here are five reasons why you should consider switching to the Fiberglass Dry Van:

Deliver more products

Aluminum weighs heavy on trucks, which means that it consumes the allotted payload for the cargo. Fiberglass is significantly lighter than aluminum, which means more revenue because you will be able to deliver more products per trip.

No more plywood interiors

Plywood often is the interior lining material for aluminum vans. When water enters the body, whether it may be due to leaks on a rainy day or general cleaning of the vehicle, plywood becomes vulnerable to swelling and losing its shape. This eventually leads to the layers of wood splitting apart. The first thing you will notice with the Fiberglass Dry Van is the absence of plywood, and in lieu of this, it is lined with fiberglass skin that is completely water-proof.

Longer useful life

Aside from the damages of water on the structural integrity of plywood, this material (especially in its moist state) can attract pest infestations in the form of subterranean termites. Aside from eating away the walls, they can also inhabit cargo that will be loaded inside your vehicle. Thankfully, this is immaterial to fiberglass, and you can enjoy longer usefulness focusing on your deliveries with the Fiberglass Dry Van instead of thinking about pest control constantly.

Corporate image and aesthetics

The visibility of trucks on the road can create an impression about the corporate identity of any business enterprise. Aluminum vans are customarily made of sheets put together and are dull in color and appearance. On the other hand, fiberglass bodies offer a seamless and bright surface that is frequently adorned with company decals or advertising stickers. A company vehicle with a modern and sleek presence delivers not only products, but also a statement.

Truck Engine

A dependable truck is everything that you will need to get the most out of everyday hauling without downtime. It must be eco-friendly, heavy-duty, and equipped with the latest technology to carry multiple loads at any point in the country.

The delivery van has truly evolved from aluminum to fiberglass body, and with a good engine to move it, you’re in for a worry-free haul. Experience the transformation in deliveries by contacting JMC Philippines (02) 403-4713 and Coolaire Consolidated Inc. (02) 83728879 to 82.
