Joop Roijakkers, Vice President of ICTS Group, and Mr. Mehmet Önen, Head of Key Account Management at Kässbohrer, detailed their partnership.
“For over five years, we operate with Kässbohrer curtainsider and container chassis vehicles and are very happy with their robustness and performance,” said Roijakkers.
“As a result of Kässbohrer quality, we have decided to add 20 Kässbohrer Dry Freight Plywood Box
Vehicles to our fleet.
“For our operations in narrow city roads, Kässbohrer K.SBT C vehicles provide excellent maneuverability with their mechanical steering axle. The vehicle’s steering axles will enable time saving and decrease fuel consumption as well as preventing vehicle damages in our operations.

“K.SBT C is robust with 20mm thick plywood walls, 7.2-tonne forklift capacity phenol resin coated plywood floor as standard.
“In order to increase the robustness of the floor, the vehicle is equipped with heavy duty welded kick plates on the sidewall and front wall.
“For ICTS, our vehicle is offered with several options such as Tail-lift to accelerate loading and unloading when there is no ramp, turtle mechanical lock to increase security against theft, an insulated roof to protect the vehicle against humidity and prolong product life and lashing rails to ensure load security.
“Apart from the options ICTS selected, we also offer versatile options such as double deck option to increase the capacity to 66 euro pallets, crane pockets for intermodal operations, laminated hardwood floor for tough operations, aluminium shutter door for easy and quick loading and unloading and cantilever lift to accelerate loading and unloading when there is no ramp.
