Morgan Corporation announced the introduction of its store-to-door home grocery delivery truck body as well as market-leading improvements to its refrigerated and moving/furniture truck body product lines.
In addition to its highly successful NexGen dry freight and refrigerated bodies, Morgan is introducing a solution that offers multiple temperature zones for frozen, fresh, ambient, or heated products. Along with curbside loading and unloading and optional retractable shelving and telematics systems, this addition to the NexGen product line is up to 20% lighter in weight than traditional body designs.
Smooth wall construction, a non-corrosive body – including subframe – and sealed joints for a tight fit against the elements, round out Morgan’s cutting-edge home delivery truck body.
“With the significant growth in final mile and home grocery delivery in recent years, Morgan now sets the standard for grocers, caterers, and many others,” stated Paul Jarossy, Director of Marketing and New Business Development.
Morgan also has made upgrades to its traditional reefer body as well as its moving and furniture body. The moving body will incorporate a Cargolight wall system from CellTech that is exclusive to Morgan. When compared to current wall and cargo control arrangements, this unique design employs an embedded vertical track system every two feet that allows the user to add, delete, or move e-track, tie slats, and other freight restraint options as their needs change.
As an added feature, the outer wall is smooth because there are no through-wall fasteners, thus offering a cleaner surface for graphics.
Finally, the Morgan moving truck will also demonstrate how an optional door/ramp combination, that has been very popular with landscapers on the Morgan Proscape Van, can replace the narrow rear walk ramp and provide more flexibility for users and their equipment in accessing the truck body.
“Our customers are excited about this new feature because it offers more flexibility when handling their client’s goods,” added Jarossy.
Morgan will be displaying at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana in booth #5139 from March 7–9.
