Trailer maker launches technology offshoot24 November 2017

Schmitz Cargobull is launching a new company, called KUBIKx, to focus on technology solutions for fleet management, transport and logistics processes.

The new business will begin operating in the first quarter of 2018 and will be headed up by Karl-Heinz Neu, who has been leading Schmitz Cargobull telematics development since 2005.

“Digital solutions for managing and monitoring global supply chains are becoming increasingly important but also more complex,” says Andreas Schmitz (pictured), Schmitz Cargobull’s CEO.

He describes KUBIKx as an “ideas hub”, which will be able to respond quickly to data management, artificial intelligence and other transport technology requirements.

“We aren’t starting from scratch,” he adds. “We are able to build on our experience in the fields of production (automation) and value-added services.”

KUBIKx will not work exclusively for Schmitz Cargobull customers: it will, says the company, create tailored solutions regardless of the trailer manufacturer.
