Body builders set to reduce mounting time

With new tools specifically designed for body builders, a highly modular approach to chassis design and provisions made for configurations, the vehicles in the new Renault Trucks range can bring body mounting time down by as much as 20 per cent, thereby speeding up vehicle deliveries.

 

Right from the design stage, Renault Trucks has developed an architecture which takes body builders’ concerns into account.

Body builders can also consult a dedicated Internet site, the Bodybuilder Portal. This allows them to configure the vehicle in question via its identification number, get details of the chassis’ customised plan, the body mounting guide, the manufacturing and delivery schedule as well as the homologation paperwork. Body builders can also access an online e-learning module.

In the end, all these services add up to reducing body mounting operations by as much as 20 per cent, giving body builders a greater degree of independence and reduce any risk of error.
