Schmitz swap box with electric refrigeration

Horstmar, Germany: Schmitz Cargobull has developed an electrically driven fridge for swap boxes.

One of the first project partners is the Edeka retail chain, which is operating a fully electric eActros with an electric refrigeration unit and swap box from Schmitz Cargobull for practical testing.

As well as Edeka other Schmitz customers are taking part in the electric mobility field testing of Mercedes-Benz trucks.

Boris Billich from Schmitz Cargobull said: “The ongoing discussion about driving bans on diesel vehicles in city centres and the growing need for electrically driven delivery vehicles for ‘the last mile’ make it clear that the issue of electric mobility for commercial vehicles is of major importance and opens up opportunities.

“We seize this opportunity with our refrigeration unit. Through the joint testing with Mercedes-Benz Trucks we can gain valuable experience concerning the critical factor of shared truck / refrigeration unit energy management.”

The fully electric vehicle now delivered will be primarily used in food distribution. The WKO Cool swap box from Schmitz Cargobull has steel connecting profiles bonded with the panels make for a robust body. The reinforced bulkhead accommodates the refrigeration unit.
