Renault Trucks offers various tanker transport solutions adapted to driving conditions in Africa. Whether your journeys are long or short distances, the safety functions available on our ranges allow you to carry out your missions with complete peace of mind. We pay particular attention to driver comfort, so that they can work in the best conditions for greater safety and productivity. Renault Trucks will help you find the best vehicles and services for your ADR transport.
The safety of our trucks
Renault Trucks C and K leave our factories with ADR certification. To meet the specifications for the transport of dangerous goods, our vehicles offer a wide range of safety equipment:
- PROTECTIVE PLATE ON EXHAUST
obligatory for the transport of dangerous materials.
- INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR CIRCUIT BREAKER SWITCH
located at the rear of the cab and on the dashboard, for maximum safetý in the transport of hazardous materials.
- NEUTRAL INHIBITION
standard on all ranges.
on the Renault Trucks C range, a function that prevents under/over-steering, corrects trailer sway.
- EBS - HSA - ASR
electronic braking system including ABS (anti-lock braking system), hill start assists and traction control.
- EMERGENCY PARK BRAKE APPLICATION
automatic park brake activation when the driver's door is opened with the engine running.
- LANE DEPARTURE WARNING AND EMERGENCY BRAKING
on the Renault Trucks C range, detects lane departure and alerts the driver. Reduces the risk of a head-on collision by powerful automatic braking.
If you need a larger storage capacity, ￼we designed the Renault Trucks T Tanker. This is a vehicle in which as many items as possible are made￼ of aluminium, meaning they are much lighter:
- Fuel tank
- Wheel coupling￼
Furthermore, the Renault Trucks T Tanker is also available in a low cab version, which also saves on weight whilst maintaining the driver’s comfort.
Tanker versions also exist for the Renault Trucks D and Renault Trucks D Wide models. They have aluminium rims, adapted fuel tanks and a clear right-hand longeron so the body-builder’s pumping equipment can be installed.
In a nutshell, Renault Trucks Tanker models were configured for exceptional payload. A higher payload means more goods transported during each journey, and therefore improved profitability for your activity.
Driving comfort and life on board for the driver
Driving and on-board comfort is essential for a motivated, attentive, and productive driver. Therefore, Renault Trucks offers optimum driver comfort on its ranges:
- NIGHT&DAY CAB
a deep and spacious cab equipped with the new serenity bed.
- LED HEADLINES
as standard on the Renault Trucks C range, providing better night vision and visibility in all circumstances.
- MULTI-DIRECTIONAL STEERING COLUMN
the best on the market, offering an ideal driving position thanks to its three axes of adjustment to suit the driver's driving position.
Reduced consumption and optimized range
Fuel represents a significant cost daily, which is why Renault Trucks is committed to reducing consumption on its trucks and improving the profitability of transporters:
- LARGE TANK CAPACITY
for a range of several days.
- ONE OF THE LOWEST FUEL CONSUMPTION LEVELS ON THE MARKET
allowing a considerable reduction in fuel costs.
- OPTIDRIVER GEARBOX
a versatile and efficient power train.
In addition to having equipment on the trucks that allows you to considerably reduce your consumption, Renault Trucks offers to train your drivers in rational driving. This training provided by our experts, which is part of the Optifuel program, will not only allow you to reduce your fuel costs by up to 15%, but it also has an impact on safety. By applying the principles of rational driving, trained drivers reduce the risk of accidents.
Fleet optimization with OPTIFLEET
Faced with the demands of customers and the driving and safety requirements of tanker transport, it is not always easy to optimize the use of your fleet. With our Optifleet fleet management solution, Renault Trucks allows you to plan your routes, monitor your vehicles and, for example, if necessary, assign them a mission or a route modification directly. In addition, with Optifleet, you have access to the vehicle's technical data (consumption, use) and the driving time of your drivers. These are all levers that you can use to manage your fleet in the most profitable and secure way for your business.
