Schmitz Cargobull debuts swap box with electric refrigeration unit

We’re all talking about e-mobility. I’m certainly writing about it all the time in this column. And e-trucks are almost becoming a dime a dozen. This is all very well – but what about bodies?

Well, Schmitz Cargobull has developed electrically driven refrigeration units for use in distribution transport. They operate completely emission-free – and the first units are now making their way onto trucks!

Edeka, the well-known European retail chain, has just taken delivery of a fully electric eActros with an electric refrigeration unit and swap box from Schmitz Cargobull. The company is using it for practical testing.

The fully electric vehicle will be primarily used in food distribution transport. The W.KO COOL swap box from Schmitz Cargobull has optimised insulation and strength. Sturdy steel connecting profiles bonded with the panels make for a robust body. The reinforced bulkhead is designed to accommodate the refrigeration unit.
