JOST’s push-button trailer coupling system, KKS, has won the Innovation Award at the Tip-Ex Tank-Ex show in Harrogate, UK.
The Tip-Ex Tank-Ex event – held 30 September – 2 October 2021 at the Harrogate Convention Centre – promoted the tipper and bulk transport sector, featuring a number of exhibitors including commercial vehicle manufacturers, tanker builders, truck liner specialists, electric vehicle innovators and other specialised transport equipment suppliers.
JOST KKS is a remote-control trailer hitching solution that automates the coupling and uncoupling process.
This development has potential to halve the time it takes to change a trailer, eliminating all physically demanding activities associated with coupling/uncoupling.
It is also reported to almost halve costs per truck trip depending on the transport order, driving and saddle time.
“We are delighted by the recognition of our innovative technology and thank all the jury members,” JOST World said in a statement.
