   However, the customer will be forced to pass on these costs or save elsewhere.”
But one way to avoid this problem is
to use an electric alternative. Schmitz Cargobull have also developed an electric solution; the S.KOe COOL SMART reefer, which is equipped with an electric axle and an electric refrigeration unit, S.CUe with integrated power electronics and battery system. “Our first full-electric S.KOe semi-trailers are currently on trial with customers and we received very positive feedback,” Hunt says.
“As with all Schmitz Cargobull reefers, they are fitted with Schmitz Cargobull’s telematics system, TrailerConnect, which enables key features such as the battery charging level, remaining range and remaining charging time to be monitored via the telematics portal.
“The trailer structure itself also contributes to reducing energy consumption. Due to the optimal insulation effect of the vapour diffusion-tight FERROPLAST panels, a K-value of 0.33 W/m2K is achieved which can reduce energy consumption by up to 15%.”
