With the robust two-axle steel chassis and container locks for 1 x 20’, the A.WF trailer swap chassis offers the optimum equipment for securing and supporting the trailer. To flexibly transport interchangeable modules and containers, it has been optimally adapted to the demands of multimodal transport. The Z.WF central axle swap chassis is also designed to flexibly transport interchangeable modules and containers Designed and tested for every type of transport task with a payload of approximately 14.5 tonnes, both of the trailers are suitable for transporting containers and swap bodies with standardised ISO container mountings (20ft).

The W.BO swap box is a completely new addition to the Schmitz Cargobull product range and serves as a multimodal transport solution. Instead of losing time during loading and unloading, swap containers can be set down and immediately replaced by another swap container ready for further transport. This helps to save time and use the transport trailer more efficiently. In addition, the driving times per driver are reduced and empty runs are avoided.

The Schmitz Cargobull W.BO swap box for dry freight transport is a smooth-walled box with a steel construction featuring a wide range of equipment options such as a double-decker system, roller door or standard keyhole system.

Schmitz Cargobull offers three different interchangeable box models, which are designed to handle a wide range of transport tasks. They are available as steel versions with 7.45 m and smooth walls or beaded walls, as well as a 7.82 m smooth wall version.
