Information for our body partners: From configuration and production up to registration.
No complete vehicle is like any other. However, one thing does not change: Together, we have to coordinate a large number of technical details precisely and reliably. Here you will find all the information on the MAN chassis: precise, comprehensive, and clearly presented.
The online services of our portals serve as a foundation. But the personal contacts with our vehicle and body specialists are at least as important. Find out here where and how you can access the various information and documents required in the body manufacturing process.
Step 1: Configuration
Readily prepared – from typical to highly individual
Ex works, in line with the industry standard
Whether long-haul transport, construction site, distribution, etc.: Each application segment has its own characteristics. We therefore offer you chassis prepared specifically for the segment. Optimally prepared for implementing your bodies.
Our trucks can be adapted in a variety of ways for the most diverse body concepts. In the Guide to Fitting Bodies for our trucks we have documented for you which parts and components of our vehicles can be modified and which options are available to you.
How to retrieve the data: With the order number via the MAN ABBI® vehicle list
There are two ways to get the technical data of your vehicle.
Either the vehicle is already included in the vehicle list in MAN ABBI®, in this case click on the MAN ABBI® link. The icons in the vehicle list take you directly to the technical data and drawings of the vehicle. There you can also find information about the scope of delivery and the delivery date. Or you use the second possibility – the retrieval of technical data and drawings via our MANTED® online portal for technical vehicle data.
With the basic vehicle number / MAN code via MANTED®
Our MANTED® online portal is the right place for you, no matter for which of our vehicles you need technical data or drawings. To retrieve documents, you only need to register first. After logging in, select the desired series under “Vehicle information”. There you will have immediate access to the vehicle-specific documents and information.
Sophistication lies in the detail. For example, in how a component of our vehicles is disassembled and reassembled. Or in how a specific component is correctly installed in the chassis. If you need insider knowledge for one of your body projects, our portal for technical documentation (MAN PTD) is the right place to go: As a registered user, here you get access to numerous assembly and installation sketches and the company standards of MAN Truck & Bus SE.
If you implement your customers’ body requirements based on one of our vans, WLTP is mandatory. WLTP stands for Worldwide harmonized Light-Duty-Vehicles Test Procedure. This new test procedure has been mandatory throughout the EU for type approval of new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles since September 1, 2017. For you as a body builder, this means that you must prove the WLTP values of the complete vehicle for vehicle registration. The final dimensions and the vehicle weight must be taken into account, as well as any changes to the tyres. In our MAN ABBI® Portal, we provide you with a calculation tool you can use to determine the required WLTP values quickly and easily. You will find the link to the tool in the MAN ABBI® menu bar and also as an icon in the vehicle list.
Do you still have questions about WLTP? Get in touch with us at email@example.com
Our experts are also happy to be personally available to you. For example, when it comes to determining the exact dimensions for a special body/chassis combination, determining the unladen weight or calculating the CO2 values. Or if you need project-related detailed drawings. For example, for the mounting position of power take-offs.
By the way: For our new truck generation, we have already stored many detailed documents for specifying particular requirements in the configurator at your disposal.
We are happy to assist with order-related dimensional determination, unladen weight & CO2 value determination, PTO installation positions, or drawing requests on special topics for our current series. For the new Trucknology generation, you can already find a lot of data in the new C4S configurator. Log in to the MANTED® Portal and select the “Services > MANTED® online applications” section.
MAN ABBI®, the central communication interface between all parties concerned, provides you – among other things – with information on when your vehicle is scheduled at MAN, which partners are involved and when you can receive your chassis. All data is updated daily.
The MAN ABBI® Portal enables the actors to collaborate efficiently and safely. It is ideal for coordinating the individual processes for quality assurance* of the complete vehicle. *Quality assurance via MAN ABBI® is not available in all countries.
In order for your body and chassis to work together functionally and without errors, the vehicle systems must be parameterised accordingly. With our MAN-cats® (Trucks) and ODIS (Van) diagnostic system, you or a MAN workshop can carry out this task easily and safely. Find further information on MAN-cats® and ODIS as well as associated training courses in our MAN Service Portal.
Step 3: Registration of the complete vehicle
Registration documents: Rapidly achieving your goal!
CoC data sheet
No registration without a certificate of conformity. The CoC data sheet is already available for your MAN to download – in our MAN ABBI® Body Builder Portal via the vehicle list or in the “Services” section in the MANTED® Portal.
Your vehicle deviates from the standard? No problem. We will issue the confirmation of change for the registration for you. You can find the corresponding online application in the MANTED® Portal at the “Confirmations” section.
If you are still missing individual vehicle documents, you can download or reorder them in the MANTED® Portal at the “Guidelines and Forms” section – from factory and engine plates to vehicle accompanying documents up to Scheda tecnica certificates.
The registration of your vehicle requires a two-stage homologation? After registering at firstname.lastname@example.org you can prepare the documents required for this in our MAN TypMaster online programme with ease all by yourself.
Your customer wants a body solution for a used MAN? You will find the necessary vehicle data in our MAN Service Portal under the “Repair and maintenance” section. Simply register as a “market participant”.
Even a stationary vehicle requires care. If a vehicle is stationary for a long time before or after assembly of the body, it is important to observe the intervals for downtime care. Find all the facts about this on our MAN Service Portal.
Special safety rules apply to vehicles transporting dangerous goods. On our MANTED® homepage you will find the necessary information – from legal regulations to technical proofs for a continuous brake system and tilt stability.
