The Tr a i l e rCompany. Cargobull News · No. 52 3 A master in its sector: the S.KO COOL COMPLETE is the market leader in terms of insulation value. No wonder that it was also the centre of attention for large numbers of visitors at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016 in Hanover. www.cargobull.com Ahead of the competition Meticulous development work on the trailer’s floor and body as well as a patent-pending method for installing the refrigeration unit are the basis for the evolutionary progress of the S.KO COOL COMPLETE. A further advantage is the improved insulation value, which not only substantially reduces energy consumption but also shortens the operating times of the refrigeration unit in everyday use. In addition, optimised insulation values improve sustainability and save resources. Forwarding companies benefit from the increased value retention of their trailer and refrigeration unit, as the insulation capacity remains unchanged over the long term. And all this, of course, with the wellknown robustness and stability of FERROPLAST ® bodies. What is new in the interior of the S.KO COOL COMPLETE is the MF5 multifunction floor, which demonstrates 35% less wear than a traditional barley-grain floor while at the same time resulting in a weight saving of 8%. Besides the longer service life it is designed as a quiet running floor for night-time deliveries in residential areas and of course complies with the PIEK standard. The special floor profile with longitudinal ribs facilitates cleaning and accelerates the cleaning process with the water jet by up to ten minutes. The V7 full-length load-securing rail in the S.KO COOL COMPLETE impresses with its stability and strength, while its openings with a spacing of 41 mm provide for flexible horizontal load securing that extends to just in front of the rear door. The LS 3 safety system leaves thieves with no chance. It is installed in a way that makes it invisible from the outside and has an electronic combination lock with almost endless combination options. The customer has the choice between a changeable code, which can be resent after each change to the driver’s mobile phone (Rolling Code), and locking and unlocking via the keypad on the bulkhead. Both options provide maximum protection against the theft of goods. To prevent the S.KO COOL COMPLETE from sustaining damage when reversing up to the ramp, Schmitz Cargobull upgraded the Dynamic Ramp Protection system. This consists of a compressible roller bumper with four stainless steel Continued from page 1 rollers that are installed in front of the shock absorbers. These ensure that impact forces are guided into the more durable chassis of the semi-trailer, rather than into the body. This results in significantly less damage to the trailer. Of course, the new S.KO COOL COMPLETE is also available with the Executive package. This includes the Schmitz Cargobull transport refrigeration unit, fitted as standard, with the Full Service contract from Schmitz Cargobull Parts & Services as well as a standard telematics system including a temperature recorder and pro-active monitoring. The customer benefits from reduced costs, greater transparency and quick repair in the event of malfunctions. All components of the S.KO COOL COMPLETE with Executive package are perfectly tuned to one another, resulting in an unbroken information chain from the vehicle to the refrigeration unit and the load data. In this way the forwarding company maintains control of its total cost of ownership at all times. gw More time for the company’s core activities, the transport of the most diverse goods, from automotive products through to foodstuffs, and the reduction of operating costs – with these considerations in mind, Jochen Wasem, managing director of the company Wasem Logistik, approached Schmitz Cargobull.
