Rethinking sustainability - aerodynamic design for fuel savings and reduction of CO2 emissions.

CO2 Calculator

The lowered rear reduces air turbulence behind the trailer and reduces air resistance. This saves fuel and reduces CO2 emissions.

Loading assets of application...

Calculation basis:
1 liter Diesel burns to 2.63 kg CO2.
The calculation is based on a saving of 5% fuel in Eco-Mode.
In Germany, the CO2 contribution per tonne is since 01.01.2024 45.00 €

Benefits of the EcoGeneration

  • Flexible adjustable rear roof
  • Adjustable curtain height to match the body
  • 4 m total height at front and rear when set at maximum capacity
  • Flexibly adaptable for more loading space volume
  • Particularly suitable for general cargo and beverage transport
  • Standard curtain or POWER CURTAIN structure
  • Flexible body - adjustable rear and front
  • Adjustable curtain height to match the body
  • 4 m total height front and rear when set at maximum capacity
  • Up to 3m internal height and flexible for coupling heights
  • Fuel saving capabilities when interior height is not needed 
  • Particularly suitable for high volume and automotive transport
  • Aerodynamic rear roof fix
  • Curtain height matches the aerodynamic rear end
  • 4 m total front height
  • Fuel saving due to weight reduction and aerodynamic design
  • Particularly suitable for "horizontal" goods such as steel and paper rolls. 

Simple and quick height adjustment

Minimal steps, known handling, no additional tools required.

1. Open doors and fold up rear bow
2. Release curtain hump and curtain 
3. Adjust the lifting roof by using the hydropneumatic pump
4. Adjust the required inner height on the stanchions.
5. Adjust the lifting roof
6. Simply adjust and close the height of the curtain
7. Close rear bow and doors


Load securing

Simple handling via our trailer technology

Load securing and loading/unloading can be carried out as usual without any additional work. Height adjustments are made in just a few minutes through our VARIOS technology.

The Eco-Modus gives the vehicle an aerodynamic shape, resulting in a reduction of air resistance, a smaller towing area and less turbulence behind the trailer.

With the adjustable rear, the EcoFLEX and EcoVARIOS can be flexibly adapted to full load volume if required.

In practical use, fuel savings of more than 10 % have been achieved with the EcoGeneration concept.

Aerodynamic stowage box

The lightweight and aerodynamically shaped stowage box ensures optimum airflow and also saves fuel. In practical tests, additional savings of up to three percent were achieved. The new design offers more storage space, especially for spare wheels.

The EcoFlex in use at EuroSpeed

. Nickolay Rashkov, CEO of EuroSpeed, will present at the Digital Symposium "Clean Logistics" how he achieves convincing fuel and CO2 savings with the S.CS EcoFLEX curtainsider semitrailer from Schmitz Cargobull.

Simple handling analogous to known trailer technologies.

Load securing and loading/unloading can be carried out as usual without additional work steps. The adjustment of the height adjustment is done in a few minutes analogue to the already known VARIOS height adjustment technology.

Reliable transport solutions

To enable us to fulfil our transport and logistics duties even more successfully, we continually work on our innovative products and services, which are characterised by their reliability, durability and sustainability.

  • How quickly do the fuel savings become noticeable?
    The effects are directly measurable. The EcoGeneration vehicles save up to 10% fuel.
  • What certificates do the Eco range meet?
    As with the standard vehicle, the Eco vehicles also comply with all current certificates. The body technology of the Eco bodies is similar to that of the standard trailers.
  • Are any additional tools needed to make the height adjustments?
    No, adjustments can be easily made and integrated into the daily transport routine within just a few minutes.
  • How does loading and unloading work with the Eco vehicles?
    Loading and unloading of the Eco vehicles is exactly the same as for the standard vehicles. Both rear and side loading are still possible.

    Only with the EcoFLEX and EcoVARIOS is it necessary to fold up the rear bar when loading from the rear in order to prevent damage to the vehicle. The load is secured using the standard Schmitz Cargobull systems.
  • Are there any special features of the chassis?
    The well-known MODULOS chassis is used. For a particularly low empty weight, the Eco body can be combined with an X-LIGHT chassis.
  • Can the bodies be combined with Schmitz Cargobull telematics?
    Yes, of course. All curtainsider semitrailers will be equipped with the TrailerConnect® telematics CTU as standard from the beginning of 2021.
  • What are the rules for repair and maintenance of the Eco vehicles?

    Like standard vehicles, the Eco range assets are equipped with Schmitz Cargobull's MODULOS chassis. This means the vehicles are robust, have high corrosion protection, are flexible to transport tasks and come with a 10-year warranty against rust-through.

    Vehicle functionality is based on technical aspects of previous assets and standard maintenance is required. The functionality of the height adjustment is based on our VARIOS technology, therefore no restrictions or costly repairs are to be expected.
