Lorry bodies are assemblies that attach to a lorry chassis for tasks such as product storage, dumping and delivery. Lorry body suppliers do not manufacture the vehicle itself. Rather, they build a task-specific assembly that attaches to the chassis of the vehicle. Lorry bodies are designed to match vehicle-specific specifications, however, and are often custom-built. Box lorry bodies, as their name suggests, have a box-like shape for loading and unloading cargo.
Lorry bodies are usually made of steel, hardwoods or composite materials. Kamwo Timber is a regular supplier of Balau and Keranji sawn timber to many lorry body supplier companies.
