June 2019 – Schmitz Cargobull has delivered the 1,250th semi-trailer to the pfenning logistics group. For the handover of the two-axle box semi-trailer, representatives from both companies met at the Heddesheim site. Boris Billich, Sales Director of Schmitz Cargobull, handed over the new trailer to Karl-Martin Pfenning, Managing Partner of the pfenning logistics group.
“Over the past few years, Schmitz Cargobull has proven itself to be a very reliable partner. The trailer quality, quick and on-schedule delivery, and Europe-wide availability of spare parts are all decisive factors in meeting the quality standard we promise to our customers,” says Karl-Martin Pfenning, Managing Partner of the pfenning logistics group. With the recently ordered 55 S.KO two-axle semi-trailers in the fresh foods version, Pfenning added the 1,250th Schmitz Cargobull semi-trailer to the vehicle fleet.
“We are proud to fulfil the trust placed in us and also to have already pushed ahead in certain areas of trailer development together with the pfenning logistics group. Our efforts to set the benchmark for intelligent and efficient transport solutions in the commercial vehicles industry are appreciated by the customers,” says Boris Billich.
As the requirements of customers are also quite diverse in retail logistics, the pfenning logistics group has again ordered S.KO box semi-trailers of different lengths in the latest batch from Schmitz Cargobull. The fleet now contains 25 new force-steered, two-axle S.KO box semi-trailers with a length of 11 metres as well as 30 new S.KO box semi-trailers with a length of 13.6 metres. “In recent times, the loads for our customers have become increasingly heavy. The beverage portion is growing. Here we simply need a second axle,” explains René Günzel, Fleet Manager at the pfenning logistics group.
To consistently meet customer requirements, cooperation in the implementation of new ideas has been a tradition between the two companies for some time. The best-known example of this is the joint development of a through-loading road train for temperature-controlled transport, 200 units of which Schmitz Cargobull has already delivered to pfenning logistics.
The pfenning logistic group is a large comprehensive provider that is headquartered in Heddesheim in Baden-Württemberg. With 3,700 employees in total, the company is represented at a total of 90 locations in Germany. With a fleet of 800 trucks and a total storage space of 330,000 square metres, the pfenning logistics group caters to customers not only in the retail trade but also in many other economic sectors.
