"Supply chains face huge challenges"
On its 50th birthday, the swap body is more in demand than ever, because cargo space is currently in short supply. This applies not only to Europe, but especially to intercontinental trade.
DACHSER focuses on more loading space
Since April 2021, DACHSER has opted exclusively for so-called ‘mega trailers’ when purchasing new semi-trailers in Germany. Because of their more generous cargo space dimensions - with otherwise the same length and width - the mega trailers achieve better fuel economy than standard semi-trailers, especially over long distances. Full conversion of the German fleet is scheduled to be completed by 2027, with some 680 new mega trailers in total. In the next few years, DACHSER will also start replacing its fleets in the 24 other European countries where it is represented through its European Logistics business line.
