Schmitz Cargobull unveils IAA preview
For aerodynamic road transportation, the German OEM offers its EcoGeneration vehicles with lathe-free Power Curtain for rapid loading and unloading, sensors that detect height adjustments and transfer this data to the telematics system, an aerodynamic storage box and interior lighting for improved occupational safety.
Focus on economy and safety
When it comes to enhance economy and safety for fleets, the correct tyre pressure plays an important role. Schmitz Cargobull offers its own tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for this purpose.
The S.KI tipper trailer’s steel chassis frames have always been characterised by an ideal balance between weight optimisation, robust durability and tipping stability.
Production of the EcoGeneration trailers from Schmitz Cargobull are in full swing. There are three product variants that enable the road transport operators to improve their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and environmental footprint.
The S.KO COOL refrigerated box body semi-trailer has long been Europe’s top-selling refrigerated trailer according to Schmitz Cargobull.
Bullish on tyre pressure
The right level of tyre pressure, Schmitz Cargobull asserts, makes it easier to control tyre technology, significantly improves vehicle response and increases driving safety.
Hold the line
In the 2019-20 financial year (1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020), Schmitz Cargobull produced 46,124 vehicles and achieved sales of 1.87 billion euro with 5,700 employees.
Tipping the elephant
With a particular emphasis on weight reduction, Schmitz Cargobull presents enhanced thermal insulation for its round steel body tippers.
An augmented perspective
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) demonstrations were a standout attraction at the 2018 IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover, Germany. While, the novelty of immersing yourself in digital surroundings can be entertaining, the technology can also be applied to functional, educational applications, which is something that German trailer builder, Schmitz Cargobull, has capitalised on in a big way.
