S.CS UNIVERSAL X-LIGHT curtainsider semi-trailer: Already a success on the market, the light curtainsider semi-trailer’s unladen weight has once again been reduced by optimising the weight of the chassis and body. With an unladen weight from 4,975 kg, the X-LIGHT curtainsider offers a higher payload without compromising on quality or strength when compared to its predecessor. As a result, it has a positive impact on both your bank account and carbon footprint.

This operates completely emission-free and is specially designed for use in distribution transport. The S.CUe is suitable for transporting both refrigerated and warm goods.
News from the world of Schmitz Cargobull trailer telematics
The experts from Schmitz Cargobull Telematics will also be presenting new developments related to improving cold chain management. With the TL3 key pad on the front of the refrigerated box body, Schmitz Cargobull now provides a third option for opening and locking the rear door. Another function included in Schmitz Cargobull’s door locking system is the geofencing-based control function. To make sure business owners using lots of different telematics systems in their fleet only have to use one portal, Schmitz Cargobull has added generic data import interface for other telematic provider. These interface enable telematics data from diverse trailer telematics systems to be transferred to and displayed in the TrailerConnect® portal 2.0.
New Schmitz Cargobull apps
Schmitz Cargobull makes monitoring loads and trailers even more efficient and transparent with two new apps. Schmitz Cargobull has advanced the TrailerConnect® beSmart app specifically for drivers. By displaying all key measurement values in the beSmart app, the driver is able to manage up-to-date trailer data at any time. Direct control from the cab also helps to improve occupational safety.
The new TrailerConnect® beUpToDate app is geared towards the needs of fleet managers and scheduling experts. It keeps all of the telematics portal users informed via smartphone about the current locations of their trailer fleet, downtime and movement data.
Award-winning!: The EcoDuo vehicle concept
Schmitz Cargobull’s EcoDuo concept was designed to be both ecological and economically efficient. In the EcoDuo combination, two standard trailers – connected via a dolly – are coupled to a tractor unit. As well as reducing the fuel consumption and, as a result, the CO2 emissions per transported tonne, this combination also helps to reduce traffic and therefore relieve strain on roads and bridges. HGV drivers can also transport two trailers with one tractor unit. This vehicle combination is also a means to mitigating driver shortages.
