[post_content] => In the world of combined transport, using the correct trailer is important. Not only should a trailer be durable and withstand large payloads over a period of time, but it should also be able to maximise available space without compromising strength. The European market is already making changes in order to adapt to the fast-growing implementation of intermodal transport throughout the supply chain.
Autamarocchi, one of the top five Italian transport companies, has entered into a joint venture with Kässbohrer to provide reliable and efficient intermodal transport in Europe. The company has 2,000 vehicles in its fleet and offers competitive solutions in intermodal transport. Founded in 1986, Autamarocchi offers made-to-measure transport to its customers throughout Europe in the field of container and full truckload (FTL) shipping.
For fleet companies, supplier reliability is an important factor. Kässbohrer has been a consistent partner of Autamarocchi for seven years and can offer a wide range of transport options, including its huckepack curtainsider range, fixed and gooseneck container chassis options and box swap body range.
The K.SHG S gooseneck container chassis is one of Kässbohrer’s leading products and is suitable for all possible configurations up to 40-ft containers. The durable chassis enables greater payloads and a longer life, which provides a more diverse operational landscape for the semi-trailer and has proven to be the preferred option for customers in more than 55 countries.
“It is mandatory to have a robust chassis for challenging operational loadings if you want full efficiency,” says Ervino Harej, general manager of Autamarocchi. “We are aware of that and worked with Kässbohrer time after time. Also the delivery time of Kässbohrer and competitive advantage among other manufacturers make the partnership important for Autamarocchi.”
Kässbohrer is also the preferred partner for Autamarocchi’s fleet expansion. Its K.SCC ferry coil curtainsider and the latest K.SHG L light container chassis are operational favourites, providing excellent quality and service in intermodal transport. The light container chassis, which offers a tare weight advantage of 200 kg over comparable models, can carry 45-ft containers and swap bodies. The K.SHG L is one of the most popular semi-trailers, with 220 units delivered in 2017 and another 70 units delivered to Autamarocchi at the beginning of 2018. Since its launch in 2016 at the IAA show, Kässbohrer’s light container chassis have seen rapid sales growth and offer an innovative solution for logistics companies.
Kässbohrer’s key account sales manager, Mehmet Önen, says: “Kässbohrer continues to be the solution partner for transportation and logistics sector by offering the best quality and services to its customers. Not only product-based but also Kässbohrer contributes to the sector itself with its innovative approach. Kässbohrer and Italy have a special relationship and we will sustain this partnership for years to all over the Europe.”
Kässbohrer was founded in 1893 by Karl Kässbohrer in Ulm, Germany; it now has a second German plant in Goch, near the Dutch border. In addition, Kässbohrer supplies the Russian market from a plant in Tula oblast, while its largest production facility is now in Adapazari, Turkey.
