June 2022 – The new S.BO PACE dry freight box body is now also coming to the continental European market and will be manufactured at the Schmitz Cargobull production plant in Zaragoza, Spain. Back in late 2021, Schmitz Cargobull presented the new S.BO PACE box body for dry freight and CEP transport made in its British plant for Great Britain and Ireland. Featuring a fully modular design, the dry freight box body is 100% SMART, which means it is equipped with TrailerConnect® trailer telematics as standard. The body is made from innovative STRUKTOPLAST panels. Thanks to the light, honeycomb-shaped panels, each trailer weighs around 600 kg less than similar vehicle models in this segment.
The S.BO PACE is primarily geared towards transport companies in the package and dry freight sector. It is certified to DIN EN 12642 code XL and offers a wide range of options, such as load securing rails, a translucent roof, a tail lift and two different door options: a tailgate or aluminium doors. Furthermore, the ROTOS running gears come with a warranty for 1,000,000 km or six years*.
The vehicle can be equipped with a number of load securing components, such as package securing nets or gates at the rear. The floor load capacity is 5.5 t as standard or there is the option to increase it to 7.1 t or 8.0 t in vehicles that have to transport heavy loads or floor conveyors. Schmitz Cargobull’s standard TrailerConnect® telematics system delivers intelligent connectivity and supports swift diagnostics and the rapid processing of data collected from all components.
To coincide with its new trailer, Schmitz Cargobull is also launching a new name for vehicles in its Dry Freight product line: As has always been the case, S.KO is used for all vehicles that transport temperature-controlled freight, while S.BO (= semi-trailer box) is the new name for dry freighters. In addition to the new S.BO PACE, Schmitz Cargobull offers other vehicles in this segment, such as the proven S.BO EXPRESS with FERROPLAST panels or the robust S.BO Steel steel box body.
