JOST wins innovation award at SOLUTRANS


Equipment specialist JOST has won the the gold I-nnovation Award in the Equipment Suppliers category at this year’s SOLUTRANS trade fair.

The winning system is the KKS, a remote-control trailer hitching solution that automates the entire coupling and uncoupling process, including air, electrics, and brakes.

“Receiving the I-nnovation Awards 2023 is a symbol for the collaboration and confidence of the JOST customers, teams, and partners in the company’s innovative products,” said Managing Director JOST France, Frédéric Ménestrot. “Together, we are preparing the future of transports.”

JOST’s KKS enables drivers to couple and uncouple semi-trailers via remote control without leaving the driver’s cabin, saving time, reducing the risk of accidents and removing the physically demanding aspects of coupling.

The award, which is from the French Bodywork Federation, considers innovative projects from bodybuilders, equipment suppliers or providers of digital solutions, whose goal is to drive change in the sector. It was presented at the SOLUTRANS transport trade fair taking place in Lyon, France.
