Smart Trailer Days: Schmitz Cargobull

German OEM, Schmitz Cargobull, presents a compilation of its latest product and service innovations that aim to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for fleets.

One highlight, according to the trailer manufacturer, is the introduction of telematics as standard equipment for curtainsiders. The main focus of product development was on reducing weight while maintaining the same robustness, cooling efficiency for temperature-controlled freight and digital networking.

The S.CS Curtainsider demonstrates the OEM's consistent principle for chassis design from weight-optimised X-LIGHT to a heavy duty version with high load capacity.

Meanwhile, the S.KO COOL SMART box semi-trailer has a new robust air distribution system that optimises airflow in the trailer for greater thermal efficiency.

In addition to developments with its tipper range, Schmitz Cargobull has also unveiled a new generation of truck bodies (M.KO/Z.KO) and drawbar trailers with ATP / FRC certification.

TrailerConnect telematics makes the OEM's trailers 'smart' and is now a standard inclusion for the S.CS SMART curtainsider.

As for high productivity, the EcoDuo combination stands out as serviceable transport concept where two standard semi-trailers are connected to each other via a dolly (which is then coupled to a prime mover or tractor unit).

The company is also relaunching its trailer swap chassis A.WF and central axle swap chassis Z.WF for the transport of short swap bodies and a new swap box W.BO.

Schmitz Cargobull also delivers an entry-level contract 'Service Trailer Basic' which covers material and labour costs for maintenance and wear of axle and brake components.

In other news, Schmitz Cargobull has appointed new management for its Cargobull Parts & Services subsidiary, effective 1 July 2020.
