Transport Refrigeration Unit

Efficient and safe transport of refrigerated goods.

The vision:
With this comprehensive one-stop solution for the transportation of temperature-controlled freight the benefits for the customer are threefold:Safety, efficiency and permanently low TCO (Total Costs of Ownership). One point of contact, one specialist workshop, one Europe-wide service network - for all S.KO COOL trailer components including the Schmitz Cargobull services. That means less stress and greater flexibility for the user. The constant checking of the system components, using a trailer telematics system, centralised monitoring and control of servicing, maximises the availability of the customer's investment.
