Schmitz Cargobull names leader of Telematics subsidiary

The current Head of Electric & Electronic System Engineering – Products at Schmitz Cargobull has also assumed the role of Managing Director of Cargobull Telematics.

Marnix Lannoije accepted the additional role, effective 1 April 2020. He took over the position from Marco Reichwein who left the company at the end of March.

By combining the areas of system engineering, telematics and full service, Schmitz Cargobull is deliberately drawing technical and corporate synergies into a single source to enable it to respond to market requirements and customers’ needs even more quickly and more efficiently during this disruptive period. This move will also allow the company to advance its data business, while also pushing forward the development of practice-based trailer functions.

After completing his degree (Masters in electro-mechanics/mechatronics), the now 44-year-old worked on development projects for firms including Tyco Electronics, Audi and Bombadier Transportation.

Lannoije joined Schmitz Cargobull in January 2019 as the Head of Electric & Electronic System Engineering. As part of this role, he worked in the field of digitalisation and electric mobility, helping to advance the development of the S.CUe electric cooling unit, the battery packs and an electric axle with a generator.

“After all his hard work in the field of electric drives and mobility, we are delighted that Marnix Lannoije is now also taking charge of Cargobull Telematics and continuing to expand our digital services in this area,” said Schmitz Cargobull CEO, Andreas Schmitz.
