ECOROAD is a complementary transport system in your product range. ECOROAD makes full use of the vehicle GTW, to enable an exceptional payload to be obtained:

  • 4 to 5 tonnes of payload with a 9T GTW with a BT licence, a 3.5T tractor + trailer (depending on the type of trailer body).
  • 8 to 9 tonnes of payload with a 12T GTW with a C1E licence, a 7T tractor + trailer (depending on the type of trailer body).

A reminder about Driving Licences:

BE licence: A BE license obtained before the 19 January 2013 allows the holder to drive an ECOROAD with a GTW of 9 tonnes. For the license obtained after this date, the GTW is 7 tonnes.

The new C1E European Driving License: A C1E license allows the holder to drive an ECOROAD with a GTW of 12 tonnes.

The ECOROAD solution helps you to:

  • Solve overload constraints on commercial vehicles
  • Respect the legislation in force
  • Drive in complete safety

ECOROAD is designed to receive a wide range of bodies: Curtain sider, van, refrigerated body, flat truck, crane, tipper, car transporter, car hauling trailer, etc.

ECOROAD, flexibility of use:

  • A fast and manoeuvrable vehicle that satisfies contemporary requirements for the transport of retail goods.
  • Optimization of the transport of personnel in the case of a double cab vehicle: this type of vehicle allows up to 7 people to move to their place of work.

The economic benefits ECOROAD :

  • The BE and C1E driving licenses are more economical than HGV licences. No need for FIMO training.
  • Maintenance costs are less for a LCV, compared with those of an HGV.
  • Fuel consumption is less than for an HGV, without having to compromise on the payload carried. On average 6,000€ of savings for 100,000 km travelled!
  • Class 2 tolls for a 3.5T tractor + trailer (depending on the type of trailer body). A combination with a total height greater than 2 meters and less than 3 meters, with a tractor vehicle with a GTW less than or equal to 3.5 tonnes.
  • A mini-semi-trailer has a longer service life than a rigid truck.
  • Being able to separate the trailer from the tractor allows replacement of the tractor without the additional cost of replacing the body.

The technical benefits ECOROAD :

  • The trailer design with the latest technical developments.
  • Its approval is European.
  • The galvanised chassis, pneumatic suspension with raise and lower functions, BPW axle, disc brakes with ABS, LED lights, etc. all contribute to the production of a high quality finished product.
  • The versatility in the type of towing hitch and the interchangeability of trailers contributes to the flexibility of use of ECOROAD vehicles and to the savings you can achieve.
