Hüffermann-Schwarzmüller partnership supports THW relief team

The Hüffermann multi carrier, according to Schwarzmüller, offers outstanding versatility for the transportation of wheeled vehicles, roll-off and skip containers, ISO containers and more.

Hüffermann Transportsysteme signed a framework agreement with the German Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) last December.

It included an order for a larger quantity of multi carrier trailers which have been specifically adapted to the requirements of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Technisches Hilfswerk – THW).

The framework agreement comprises two variations of the trailer. The first and most comprehensive version has been designed for the transport of vehicles, general cargo, roll-off containers as well as two 10’ or one 20’ ISO containers. Thanks to the new swap body adapters, which are stowed in the storage box when not being used, the trailer can also accommodate BDF swap containers. They are manufactured at Schwarzmüller’s head production site in Freinberg.

The second version is produced in Neustadt (Dosse) in Brandenburg and is equipped with special equipment for transporting ISO containers or workshop containers and with brackets for Haacon support jacks. The hoisting winch systems enable the THW to move containers during their operations.

There are also variations with a modified rear end that are loadable from both sides, designed for the use of tail lift containers, for example. The Federal Police, as well as others, use the multi-carrier in this variation.

Starting in mid-2023, the first vehicles were delivered to THW. The multi carrier vehicles provide state-of-the-art transport solutions for THW and support operational personnel in their various tasks. The vehicles have successfully passed all necessary tests and inspections, meeting the high standards of THW in terms of reliability, durability and functionality.

The successful prototype approval of the first trailers took place at the end of June.

The partnership between Hüffermann and THW has already lasted more than a decade and has led to many successful projects.

The multi carrier is not only arousing the interest of the Technisches Hilfswerk but also of other organisations. The versatile nature of the vehicle allows various police departments, aid organisations such as the German Red Cross (DRK) or the Malteser, as well as the fire brigade, to adapt it to their specific needs. Through individual configurations, the multi carrier can satisfy the requirements of different operational scenarios and provide optimal performance.

The Schwarzmüller subsidiary is committed to leveraging its years of experience and expertise to meet the requirements of THW and provide the emergency personnel team with state-of-the-art transportation solutions.
