1000 Kögel Cargo Rails for SMET

"SMET is not only one of the large, well-known forwarding companies in Italy, but also throughout Europe," says Massimo Dodoni, Managing Director of Kögel. "Over the past five years, Kögel and SMET have found common ground in healthy and steady growth, as well as a unique and friendly partnership."


"The high quality of the semi-trailers and the excellent expertise of the sales were and are the reasons why we very much value our partnership with Kögel and look forward to future cooperation," says Domenico De Rosa, Managing Director at SMET. "With the introduction of the NOVUM generation, Kögel has further improved its already very good semi-trailers, which is especially beneficial for our drivers when it comes to daily use."


The latest NOVUM design comes with an optimised external frame profile and improved body designed to make the semi-trailers even more robust. It also comes with a very high degree of customisation and can thus be adapted to the specific requirements of SMET. The trailers can be fully certified for use in rail or rail/ferry intermodal chains with "last mile" C&D work by road, as well as for long distance road haulage. In rail intermodal work they can be certified according to EN 12642 Code XL, for transport on express freight trains with a speed of up to 140 km/h.
