JUDGING by the amount of space J devoted to it in the Danish Press. the introduction of a new Scammell • Scarab articulated outfit by Carlsberg Brewery, Copenhagen, has become an event of national importance. British brewers are also understood to be interested in the design of the vehicle. The Scarab tractor is coupled to a standard Scammell drop-framed semitrailer, which has been reduced in length from 22 ft. to 19 ft. The body is stated to be of patent construction.

Roof and front and rear external panels are of aluminium lined with Masonite, with insulating material between them. The insulant consists of specially pleated paper which keeps dry in a damp climate and is laid crosswise between the skins.

The sides are enclosed by special aluminium roller shutters, which are also insulated. The shutters are springbalanced and can be adjusted to any height, and both sides can be opened simultaneously. The vehicle is designed to be loaded from the sides.

Over the turntable at the front of the semi-trailer is a cabin for three salesmen. The Carlsberg Brewery have 56 sales districts in Copenhagen and in each are two or three vehicles. Horses have been extensively employed in the past, but the introduction of the Scammell may mark the beginning of a programme of mechanization.
