The EcoFLEX curtainsider semi-trailer concept represents another innovative contribution by Schmitz Cargobull to even greater fuel savings and CO2
reduction for road freight transport. The sustainable concept is as simple as it is effective: The body of the EcoFLEX slopes to the rear, drastically reducing aerodynamic drag. This concept offers huge potential savings, particularly for heavy transport jobs that do not require the full height of the cargo area.
If the full loading volume is required, the rear of the EcoFLEX can be raised flexibly. The height of the tarpaulin can be adjusted to match the body height, and always fulfils the legal total height. By raising rear of the aerodynamic body, freight forwarders can flexibly react to changing transport tasks.
The European Transport Award for Sustainability is awarded every year in a number of categories by an independent panel of experts. The award aims to encourage companies in the transport and commercial vehicle sector and help to more strongly anchor the principles of sustainable development. The jury consists of renowned experts in the commercial vehicle sector from industrial and scientific fields, trade associations and the media. Over the years, Schmitz Cargobull has repeatedly won these awards with the last one in the Concept + Initiative category for the EcoDuo transport combination in 2019.
