By combining the areas of system engineering, telematics and Full Service, Schmitz Cargobull is deliberately drawing technical and corporate synergies into a single source to enable it to respond to market requirements and customers’ needs even more quickly and more efficiently during this disruptive period. This move will also allow the company to advance its data business, while also pushing forward the development of practice-based trailer functions.
