In road freight transport, the truck’s cabin and trailer are codependent which can be harmful in several situations. In regards to loads where low temperatures are necessary, for example, the truck must be turned on to supply the refrigeration system. When cargo is stolen, as soon as the trailer is disconnected from the battery, it becomes untraceable.
In partnership with Transportadora Americana, Sunew has applied OPV to semi-trailers so that it is able to perform essential functions in a sustainabla manner and independently from cabin support. The project aims to achieve maximum safety performance (GPS, exhaust system and safe box) and battery and fuel economy. OPV technology is the only sustainable one for this type of application because it is flexible and does not suffer from the impact of vehicle movement on roads.
