DSV is taking delivery of a bulk order of Schmitz Cargobull trailers via TIP Group.
The order of 320 mega curtainsiders will reportedly be used for automotive and train transport tasks.
The first unit was released from Schmitz Cargobull’s Germany factory in August. The remaining trailers are expected to be received by the end of this year.
After six years of usage, TIP will initiate refurbishment services, effectively extending the trailers’ operational lifecycle and delivering exceptional long-term value to DSV.
“We are thrilled to add a new dimension to our long-term partnership with DSV,” said TIP Deputy CEO, Arjen Kraaij.
“Our aim is to empower DSV by offering an integration of long-term maintenance and refurbishment services, supporting DSV’s sustainability ambitions and optimising their fleet performance. Both TIP Group and DSV are fully committed to turn the green transition into a success.”
The delivery of the first mega curtainsiders took place at Schmitz Cargobull’s state-of-the-art factory in Altenberge. This was the occasion for both companies to celebrate their long-term partnership founded on shared values, innovation, and a common goal to drive positive change in the logistics sector.
When asked about the reason for choosing TIP, Flemming Steiness, Senior Director at DSV said: “TIP Group’s expertise in trailers and maintenance solutions perfectly complements DSV’s commitment to minimising our environmental impact. The configuration of the trailers and the promise of extended asset lifetime through maintenance and refurbishment align well with our sustainability ambitions. We are excited about the environmental benefits and the overall value this partnership brings to DSV and our customers.”
TIP International Strategic Accounts Director, Paul de Jong, added: “TIP and DSV have a long cooperation together. We are very pleased to deliver assets together with services to increase the lifecycle of the vehicles. Our partnership is built on trust and credibility, and we aim to further strengthen our partnership during the coming years.”
