MaxiTRANS has made a number of changes in its refrigerated and dry freight rigid truck body brand, Peki.
Manufactured at MaxiTRANS’ Dandenong facility, Peki has been redesigned to ensure the supply of high quality bodies to customers via its own dealer network and a number of selected truck dealerships.
According to General Manager Neil Zantuck, Peki is a well-loved brand in the Australian rigid body market, representing stunning appearance, high quality construction and industry leading thermal efficiency. The redesigned truck bodies are based on these qualities with new features including a forklift-proof front wall, improved floor insulation and simplified rear door panels.
Neil explains many of the improvements are based on greater durability and easier maintenance. A number of options allow the Peki bodies to be customised to suit customer requirements. For instance, the bodies are available in dry freight models through to chiller and freezer specification in addition to optional components such as tail lifts, side doors, Load Lok and lighting options for complete customisation of the body.
Viewing sales from a national perspective, Neil says that Melbourne is a common landing port for many new trucks being imported into Australia, in addition to the city being a manufacturing hub for made-to-order vehicles. Customers purchasing a truck from an interstate dealership can arrange to have the body fitted after it lands, before it is transported to its destination, with no interruption to the delivery process.
While the rigid truck bodies will be built in Victoria, local support will be provided to customers through Peki’s network of dealerships around Australia.
