Schmitz Cargobull to promote telematics system at Transport Logistic

Europe's largest trailer manufacturer, Schmitz Cargobull, will use the upcoming Transportic Logistic trade show in Munich to present the new TrailerConnect telematics system and the brand's first self-developed refrigeration unit.

According to a press release, Schmitz Cargobull is aiming to become a true 'one-stop-shop' with a strong focus on modern telematics technology. That's why the company set up 'Cargobull Telematics' as a  fully-owned subsidiary.

“Cargobull Telematics will be providing a wealth of new data and information from the field of temperature and refrigeration unit monitoring at the exhibition,” the company said. “This also covers two-way communication. This means that the temperature data are not only visible in the portal but can also be actively remotely controlled. These data and functions provide the customer with important and extensive possibilities for working efficiently and avoiding damage to the load.”

Nexty to the TrailerConnect system, Schmitz will also display TelematicOne, a consolidation platform on which both the truck and the trailer telematics systems of various manufacturers are summarised in one online portal; and Fleet4You, an integrated service portal allowing technical information from the telematics system to flow directly to the workshop processing software.

In addition, the S.KO COOL trailer on show will be fitted with a new folding circulation wall. “In comparison with a fixed circulation wall, the folding version can be opened quickly and simply. Most notably, this saves a great deal of time when the circulation wall has to be opened for the annual calibration of the front temperature sensor or for cleaning. With the folding design both hygiene-related and general regulations, such as ATP and HACCP, can be observed more simply and speedily.”
