Press Release / January 26, 2015

Danish logistics giant DSV has ordered 3.000 new trailers from German manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull.

On Monday, Søren Lund, equipment director for DSV Road Holding NV, took delivery of the first rail-transportable curtainsider semi-trailer resulting from the 3,000 unit order.

The first trailer complete with DSV signage was produced and delivered just ten days after receiving the order. This is all possible due to a sophisticated, well-functioning logistics and production control system which takes account of inbound parts from even the smallest supplier, right up to the detailed production process. In extreme cases, the process is so efficient that it is even possible produce a new trailer within just 18 hours.

The 3,000 unit order, to be completed over the next two years, includes both Universal and Mega model trailers.

Schmitz Cargobull offers both the advantages of innovative, sophisticated trailer solutions, which underline this promise of quality, and also takes into account economic factors to considerably reduce the total cost of ownership. As such, all trailers are equipped with the ROTOS running gear, which has been completely developed in-house by Schmitz Cargobull, with disc brakes, a maintenance-free axle system and electronic safety assistance systems.

In addition, there is the convenient VARIOS height adjustment system for the body, with its simple and self-explanatory plug-in mechanism. Adjusting the height of the body ensures adherence to local country-specific regulations concerning overall trailer height in trans-European goods transport.

Yet another important deciding factor in securing the order was the modular assembly system, including the equipment for intermodal traffic: All of the trailers to be supplied can be loaded onto trains or equipped for ferry transport. The components belonging to the modular assembly system are fitted using threaded bolts, meaning that all of the parts can be safely and rapidly replaced in the event of damage or repairs being carried out. It is even possible to retrofit additional components at a later date, thus increasing their flexibility in terms of use.
