Schmitz Cargobull acquires Spanish telematics specialist

The acquired business is reported to be represented in most of the top 50 cold chain carriers in Spain.

Schmitz Cargobull has acquired a majority stake in Atlantis Global System – AGS.

The AGS telematics system for real-time refrigeration data will be available with immediate effect for all Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated semi-trailers produced at the Zaragoza plant.

The data from the TrailerConnect telematics system, which Schmitz Cargobull integrates as standard in all its semi-trailers, will also be made available on the AGS telematics platform. On customer request, the OEM said the telematics data from the AGS system will be available within the Schmitz Cargobull TrailerConnect portal.

AGS will remain an independent cold chain specialist within the Schmitz Cargobull Group and will continue to operate independently in the market.

Founder Rafael del Pino, who will continue as CEO of AGS.

“The partnership with Schmitz Cargobull is an important step to strengthen and further develop the solutions developed by AGS in Spain,” he said.

“It offers a great opportunity to promote new products and further develop advanced fleet management solutions.”

To celebrate the cooperation, Schmitz Cargobull and AGS are offering a special welcome package for customers in Spain.

Together with the Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated box body, the TrailerConnect telematics and the AGS intelligent temperature recorder (thermograph) will be combined with refrigeration units from Schmitz Cargobull and other manufacturers.

The complete package will be manufactured and installed at the new Schmitz Cargobull plant in Zaragoza with Schmitz Cargobull taking full responsibility for a seamless integration.

Last year Schmitz Cargobull announced another milestone achievement, an investment in Berger.
