The International Food Distribution Association (IFDA) Distribution Solutions Conference covers the latest technologies, equipment, and service providers in the industry, along with insights on hot topics such as the Sanitary Food Transportation Act and driver retention. Last year it took place October 16–18 in sunny Tampa, Fla., where Freightliner provided smart solutions to meet food and beverage service business challenges.
Freightliner is a leader in providing pickup and delivery solutions for food and beverage companies. Compared to on-highway trucks, the Freightliner® M2 106 offers a smaller, lighter chassis, excellent fuel economy, and an efficient cost of operation, making it the perfect choice for regional and in-town food and beverage routes. Here are some more reasons the M2 106 may be the perfect choice for your business:
- Power: The M2 106 is powered by your choice of the following engines — the Detroit® DD5™, the Cummins B6.7, or the Cummins L9. Detroit’s DD5 is initially available with up to 230 HP and 660 lb-ft of torque and features Detroit Connect® telematics solutions to help you capture, transmit, and analyze data directly from your truck. The B6.7 is among the most versatile engines in its class with a broad range of power ratings, and the ISL currently offers the highest power/torque ratings in the medium-duty market.
- Maneuverability: Food and beverage routes often require drivers to navigate busy city streets and tight loading docks. The M2 106 is very agile, with a wheel cut of up to 55 degrees, a set-back front axle, and a swept-back bumper. Its 2,500-square-inch windshield, sloped hood, and low dash also provide excellent visibility.
- Comfort: The M2 106 features an automotive-style dashboard with LED-backlit gauges and easy-to-reach controls, storage space, and a writing surface for scheduling, billing, and other paperwork. It also offers flexible seating options, including a day cab, 26″ extended cab, and 48″ crew cab.
