Kögel offers trailer rental

Burtenbach, Germany: Kögel has set up a trailer rental business offering its trailers for rent.

“Kögel Rent is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to purchasing a trailer – especially in challenging times. Individual contract solutions for trailers and swap bodies provide greater flexibility and liquidity, as well as increased planning security for transport companies,” Kögel said.

Kögel Rent includes all Kögel products with maintenance handled by contracting Kögel workshops in Europe.

Part of the package is the use of Nexmo Solutions software. “Nexmo Solutions specialises in implementing intelligent solutions to optimise business processes in digital damage management. The embedding of our software solutions makes our customers’ daily routines significantly easier, as Nexmo allows them to remotely detect the status of assets, such as trailers,” Mathias Göbel, managing director, Nexmo Solutions, said.

“In concrete terms, for customers like Kögel, this means that all processes within the life cycle of a trailer can be documented in detail and provided to Kögel customers internationally in their local language.”

The status of the trailer is monitored and damage must be recorded with photos and entered in the digital damage log. This provides Kögel and customers with full transparency in all processes. The instant transfer of data enables fast processing times.“

“We are very pleased to be working with Nexmo Solutions. The software solutions were easy to integrate in our existing processes, and support both us and our customers with our daily business,” Thomas Gregor, head of trailer rentals in Europe, Kögel, said.

“By directly involving the customer, customers always maintain an overview and feel well taken care of. This minimises complaints and provides the basis for mutual trust.”
