Morgan Corporation has expanded its NexGen product line of truck bodies to include a medium- or mid-temp unit that is geared towards markets that require consistent temperatures from 35 through 75-degrees Fahrenheit.
Situated between its dry freight and refrigerated bodies, the units can be either cooled or heated based on the application. The mid-temp body is designed for delivery applications such as florists, bakeries, caterers, wine merchants, produce suppliers, and art/auction houses.
Morgan will also be demonstrating a prototype Home Delivery truck body that will incorporate the same design features as the existing line of NexGen bodies. With multiple curbside loading/unloading compartments of varying temperatures that allow for the transportation of frozen foods, fresh groceries, and packaged goods, the NexGen Home Delivery body is designed to meet the needs of the Final Mile transportation industry.
Morgan NexGen bodies are lighter than current industry truck bodies, yet carry 400 – 600 pounds of increased payload than similarly-sized bodies, according to the company. The light and strong design results in better fuel economy, increased cargo capacity, and a better resistance to the elements.
The lightweight body is built of non-corrosive materials to inhibit rust. Built for durability, the NexGen body boasts innovative features including a stain-resistant phenolic flooring in the dry freight body and an aluminum “silent floor” in the reefer. Leak-free sealed joints keep product, cargo, or tools dry because NexGen bodies are designed with elastomeric gaskets in the connection profiles that provide the protection from water intrusion. NexGen bodies offer a seamless design to easily install graphics that highlight a company’s brand.
