Schmitz Cargobull has delivered the 1,250th semi-trailer to the pfenning logistics group. For the handover of the two-axle box semi-trailer, representatives from both companies met at the Heddesheim site.
“Over the past few years, Schmitz Cargobull has proven itself to be a very reliable partner. The 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,” says Karl-Martin Pfenning, Managing Partner of the pfenning logistics group. With the recently ordered 55 S.KO two-axle semi-trailers in the fresh foods version, Pfenning added the 1,250th Schmitz Cargobull semi-trailer to the vehicle fleet. As the requirements of customers are also quite diverse in retail logistics, the pfenning logistics group has again ordered S.KO box semi-trailers of different lengths in the latest batch from Schmitz Cargobull. The fleet now contains 25 new force-steered, two-axle S.KO box semi-trailers with a length of 11 metres as well as 30 new S.KO box semi-trailers with a length of 13.6 metres. “In recent times, the loads for our customers have become increasingly heavy. The beverage portion is growing. Here we simply need a second axle,” explains René Günzel, Fleet Manager at the pfenning logistics group.
To consistently meet customer requirements, cooperation in the implementation of new ideas has been a tradition between the two companies for some time. The best-known example of this is the joint development of a through-loading road train for temperature-controlled transport, 200 units of which Schmitz Cargobull has already delivered to pfenning logistics.
