With an improved thermal efficiency of up to 28% and 10% less overall weight compared to conventional truck body wall materials, the all-composite Cold Chain refrigerated truck body series, designed and built by Wabash National Corp. Lafayette, Ind., U.S., has now been on the market a little more than three years. Wabash introduced the new line with a series of 14- to 26-foot trucks - often called box or straight trucks - made from molded structural composite MSC panels mounted directly on the chassis.
