German courier, Heinrich Langhorst, has expanded its fleet with 12 Kässbohrer light K.SHG L container chassis.
Founded in 1919 in Bremen-Findorff, Langhorst is a modern logistics company with a focus on container logistics and warehousing. Today, the company operates with a fleet of about 150 modern trucks and over 200 semi-trailers of all sizes and their headquarter is located in the Bremen GVZ.
Matthias Werner, Consultant of Langhorst, Heiner Lohoefer, Managing Director at Langhorst and Vincent Koel, Manager Region Northern Germany at Kässbohrer, commented on the partnership.
“As Langhorst, we already know that Kässbohrer container chassis vehicles are award-winning and we rely on the quality and robustness of Kässbohrer vehicles,” said Werner.
“Kässbohrer Light K.SHG L Container Chassis vehicles are allowing higher payload and lower fuel consumption due to its lightweight design. The design of the vehicle allows the safe and easy loading of containers with only four locks.”
Lohoefer said: “We are very glad to build a new partnership with Kässbohrer.”
Koel said: “As Kässbohrer, we offer the complete intermodal product range with innovation award winner Container Chassis vehicles to our customers manufactured through meticulous design and validation processes and skilled workmanship.
“We proudly offer 17 container chassis vehicles from tank containers and flat chassis to gooseneck non-extendable and gooseneck extendable categories. The extensive range proudly includes Trailer Innovation 2019 Award in Category ‘Chassis’ through its multifunctional container chassis K.SHG AVMH with novel octagonal central frame design.
“With the low weight and increased payload, Langhorst decided to operate with Kässbohrer as it is also user-friendly to carry 40′, 45′ containers by simply changing the front locks only.
“Kässbohrer’s container chassis product range is suitable for carrying 20′ tank, 30′ tank, 20′, 30′, 40′ and 45′. Different kinds of containers can be transported in vehicle selection and different lock combinations increase the capability of more container types according to your needs and operations.
“Our light K.SHG L container chassis vehicle is engineered to handle both containers and swap bodies ranging from C45 to C55 and the vehicle is suitable to carry 1×40′ and 1×45′ containers.
“K.SHG L offers a user-friendly operation when switching between 40′ and 45′ containers thanks to the design that allows switching the positioning of front container locks that eliminates the need for an extendable gooseneck
“We are very glad to build a partnership with Langhorst and I’m sure that our partnership will continue to grow with proven robustness and ease of use of our vehicles and broad after sales services.”
