Horstmar, May 2016 - Schmitz Cargobull once again showcased the latest innovations for construction trailers at bauma 2016, the world's leading trade fair for the construction industry.
At the company's 600 m2 stand, the trailers on show and the team of experts were constantly surrounded by hordes of visitors. The resounding opinion: With these reliable vehicles and the solutions for operating vehicles via a smartphone, the company has set new standards for added comfort and safety.
The overall outcome from the trade fair reflected this response. “We were able to sign significantly more contracts than at the previous bauma. We were very happy with the result,” explains Boris Billich, Sales Director at Schmitz Cargobull. Billich went on to say: “With around 580,000 visitors from more than 200 countries, this trade fair is the benchmark for innovations. With our efficient new construction trailers, we are once again setting standards for the sector, and our strong performance in terms of incoming orders sets a positive signal for the economy.”
The trailers on show - an S.KI tipper trailer with a rounded steel body and an S.KI tipper trailer with an aluminium box body - were equipped with new thermal insulation for asphalt transport. The advantage? More than 200 kg extra payload! Both of the show models were also fitted with Schmitz Cargobull's S.KI Control app, which includes new, innovative safety functions for drivers, trailers and other road users. Furthermore, an M.KI tractor tipper body, available as a kit for all conventional truck manufacturers, also attracted a great deal of attention from visitors.
