Schmitz Cargobull expands in New Zealand

Hamilton, New Zealand: Schmitz Cargobull Australia has entered into a partnership with Fruehauf New Zealand to bring   Schmitz’ srange of refrigerated trailers and truck bodies to the New Zealand market.

Officially announced at the recent Transport and Heavy Equipment Expo held near Hamilton, the collaboration will see Schmitz Cargobull supply Ferroplast box bodies, while Fruehauf NZ will fit them onto its own trailer chassis or customer-specified truck chassis.

The Ferroplast bodies will be specifically produced to meet New Zealand requirements, Schmitz says. “We are pretty happy how the partnership goes so far. From the feedback on the show in Hamilton, we see a great potential in the New Zealand market,” said Tobias Hessing, general manager of Schmitz Cargobull Australia.

“Together with Fruehauf NZ, Schmitz Cargobull offers a better product to New Zealand customers, completely different from what they used to have. It will definitely change their perception of the quality standards for the refrigerated trailers.”

The first joint trailers will be available at the beginning of May 2017, according to Hessing.
