Horstmar, May 2017 – Following a successful launch in the field of refrigerated box bodies and curtainsider semi-trailers, Schmitz Cargobull has expanded its EXECUTIVE line for further body types. With a specially tailored package including in-house vehicle components, the trailer manufacturer is working harder than ever to reduce total running costs for its customers. As well as covering top-class equipment for the trailers, the EXECUTIVE packages also include a Full Service contract with tyre service and Europe-wide breakdown service. Customers can also opt for a telematics service and refrigeration unit if required. Both options are included in the packages, along with optional financing. Thanks to its attractive EXECUTIVE packages, Schmitz Cargobull has made it even easier for its customers to choose its one-stop solution.
S.KO COOL freezer semi-trailer
NEW: enhanced EXECUTIVE package
The EXECUTIVE package is available for refrigerated box bodies and curtainsiders from Schmitz Cargobull’s line of semi-trailers. For the S.KO COOL refrigerated semi-trailer, the EXECUTIVE package comes with an added bonus, alongside the Schmitz Cargobull transport refrigeration unit, the refrigeration unit service coverage and refrigeration unit telematics including temperature recorder and proactive monitoring. Schmitz Cargobull has now added a standard enhancement to the telematics system, consisting of a coupling sensor, a door contact sensor, a tyre pressure monitoring system, dynamic ramp protection (DRP) and an LED fuel tank display with tank sensor for the refrigeration unit. In terms of servicing, the package comes with a Full Service contract for the trailer plus a tyre service contract, both of which come with a Europe-wide breakdown service. Freight operators can enjoy an additional benefit in the form of the financing option: EXECUTIVE semi-trailers can be purchased at affordable prices and with custom-made financing packages through the group subsidiary Schmitz Cargobull Finance. The system provides the customer with a one-stop solution and one single point of contact. This reduces costs, creates transparency and allows clear identification in the event of problems.
NEW: EXECUTIVE package now for the S.KO EXPRESS for dry freight
The equipment package is also available for the S.KO EXPRESS for dry freight. Here, the package includes the in-house trailer telematics system, a tyre pressure monitoring system, sensors for the coupling status with the tractor plus a door closing sensor. In terms of service, the package also includes the Full Service contract for the trailer plus the tyre service contract with a Europe-wide breakdown service and telematics service.
The EXECUTIVE package for S.CS curtainsiders includes the following features: the well-known and proven S.CS curtainsider semi-trailer with the proprietary ROTOS running gear and Schmitz Cargobull tyres. This is then enhanced by a Full Service package, including trailer and tyre servicing, telematics and the Europe-wide breakdown service. The package is rounded off with exclusive additional equipment: a tyre pressure control system monitored by telematics, the new, glued floor and, of course, the Schmitz Cargobull telematics unit. Financing options complete the package.
The EXECUTIVE packages are available for the German, BeNeLux, Danish and Hungarian markets; they will also be launched for Spain and Lithuania at the transport logistic trade fair, and roll-out to further European countries is currently in planning.
“Anyone who decides to purchase a Schmitz Cargobull EXECUTIVE product will free themselves of the strain of fleet management, logistics management, maintenance and repairs, enabling them to focus more on their core business,” promised Dr Peter Hendrik Kes, CEO of Schmitz Cargobull Parts & Services.
Preparations are already underway to combine the EXECUTIVE package for S.KI tipper trailers by Schmitz Cargobull.
