At IAA, Schmitz Cargobull showcased its new V.KO Cool Smart, which is designed for last-mile logistics for frozen and fresh goods. The semi-trailer has a new front section, improved insulation and the company’s new S.CU refrigeration unit.

The V.KO Cool Smart has simple assembly with click profiles that should take two men three hours to do, according to the company. It has been produced according to industrial standards.

In addition, Schmitz Cargobull CEO Andreas Schmitz said that digitalisation will become increasingly important in the haulage industry, and that smart technologies will become integral in trucks and trailers. Indeed, customers are now expecting digitisation, added Boris Billich, head of sales on the board of management at Schmitz Cargobull.

To this end, all Schmitz Cargobull reefer semitrailers now come with its TrailerConnect telematics system as standard. This includes seamless temperature monitoring, built-in electronic temperature recorder, tyre pressure monitoring, door locking system and more.
