Schmitz Cargobull will give the multi-temp version of its flagship S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE its UK premiere at the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Show, the first chance for British customers to get hands-on experience of the very latest in refrigerated trailer technology.
The S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE is Schmitz Cargobull’s top-of-the-range temperature controlled trailer, exclusively featuring its own-brand temperature controlled refrigeration unit. The launch of the multi-temp system follows the 2014 domestic launch of the mono-temp model in the UK.
Visitors to Schmitz Cargobull’s stand (D26) will be able to see how the multi-temp refrigeration unit precisely controls up to three compartments within a single trailer, providing pharmaceutical-grade monitoring and cooling.
Paul Avery, Managing Director, Schmitz Cargobull UK, says: “The TCS&D Show is the jewel in the crown for showcasing the latest in reefer technology and as such it’s the perfect venue to premiere our unique multi-temp S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE. With this addition to our capabilities, we’re now truly a one-stop shop for fleets looking for the latest in temperature controlled technology and trailers.”
Built in Vreden, Germany, the S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s unique roof evaporator, which has an ultra-compact design to provide maximum interior load capacity. Unparalleled evaporator efficiency means Schmitz Cargobull’s skilled engineers have reduced the number of cooling ribs required to control the temperature, leading to up to 50 per cent fewer defrosting cycles.
Complete control is available at the touch of a button through a simple to use control panel, which also records alerts, mileage and maintenance intervals. Because the fridge unit has been designed by Schmitz Cargobull to work in perfect harmony with the German trailer manufacturer’s innovative trailer bodies, the evaporator operates under continuous speed control to ensure the correct temperature is maintained within narrow margins, regardless of load size, and with much smaller deviation than that associated with stop-start systems.
The S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s integrated TrailerConnect temperature and mapping telematics package. This allows the recording and monitoring of all temperature data, door opening times and other pieces of vital information, in real time. This can be used to demonstrate that goods have been kept at the specified set point during transit, protecting the cold chain at all times.
The system also bolsters fleet security by constantly tracking the trailer’s location, with the telematics unit and sensors fitted in secure areas to protect against tampering. It is programmed to relay all warnings to the operator via a text message or email.
Furthermore, the trailer incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s low-weight, low-maintenance FERROPLAST panels and the easy-to-clean PIEK-certified MF6 Multifunction Floor for ultra-quiet loading.
Joining the S.KO COOL EXECUTIVE is the M.KO rigid bodied reefer built on a 26 tonne Scania chassis. Brought over especially from Denmark for the show, this demonstrator vehicle showcases Schmitz Cargobull’s capabilities in rigid trucks, using FERROPLAST technology to build a body with a long life expectancy that is easy to recycle at the end of its working life.
Available in multiple configurations, the M.KO will demonstrate the latest load restraint technology and incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s ‘airline’ floor with integrated load restraint feature. Thanks to the company’s extensive manufacturing capabilities, up to 15 of the rigids can be produced each day, meaning that even customers placing large orders can fit out their fleet in very short lead times.
The TCS&D Show will be held on 16th - 17th September at the Peterborough Arena.
