The first tranche of 3,000 semi-trailers was delivered in batches to DSV – one of the largest international transport and logistics companies in the world – during 2015 under its framework agreement. This latest order is due to be fulfilled over the next two years.
This latest order includes Universal and Mega trailers, which can all be loaded onto trains.
“Over the past few years, Schmitz Cargobull has proven itself to be a reliable partner,” comments Lund.
“The semi-trailer quality, quick and on-schedule delivery, and Europe-wide availability of spare parts are all decisive factors in meeting the quality standard we promise to our customers,” he adds.
All of the new DSV trailers have been specified with Ultra-Seal tyre sealant (applied through the tyre valves) and Westlake tyres.
“This makes punctures a thing of the past,” explains Steiness.
“Ultra-Seal is a repair solution that lasts the complete life of the tyre,” he continues.
“Extensive practical tests at DSV have led to impressive results, which made the choice easy to fill every tyre on a DSV trailer with Ultra-Seal.”
Schmitz Cargobull board member Boris Billich says: “We are proud that the framework agreement has been extended by another 3,000 semi-trailers and that we were able to live up to the trust placed in us.
“Our customer values our efforts to set the benchmark for intelligent and efficient transport solutions for the commercial vehicle industry.”
