Schmitz Cargobull curtainsider semi-trailers win the German Sustainability Award for Design 2022
December 2021 – Schmitz Cargobull’s EcoGeneration trailers impressed the jury presenting the German Sustainability Award for Design 2022. The aerodynamic curtainsider semi-trailer faced off against more than 1,000 entries competing for the coveted award. Roland Klement, Board Member for Research and Development, at Schmitz Cargobull, accepted the award on behalf of the company at the hybrid award ceremony held on 2 December 2021 in Düsseldorf.

“The aerodynamic S.CS curtainsider with its three versions, EcoFLEX, EcoVARIOS and EcoFIX, drastically reduces aerodynamic drag. Fuel savings of up to 10% have been achieved during road tests”, explains Roland Klement, adding: “We are very pleased that the EcoGeneration has been recognised as an industry-oriented solution for the transport sector. The EcoGeneration curtainsiders can significantly reduce both fuel costs and the carbon footprint, without requiring expensive and damage-prone add-on attachments.”

The full height of the cargo area in the EcoFLEX and EcoVARIOS curtainsiders can be made available in moments by raising the roof at the rear when more interior volume is needed. 

 

EcoGeneration wins the German Sustainability Award Design 2022

The German Sustainability Award is Europe’s largest award of this kind. The Design category recognises outstanding solutions for sustainable design and high transformation potential in which a positive impact on sustainability represented a key aspect in their development. 
Assessment teams from econcept and Kearney evaluated the applications and determined first the nominees, then the finalists, and finally the winners from among the applicants.
