Through its Kamag business activities German manufacturer of heavy-duty vehicles with hydraulically supported pendulum axles Transporter Industry International (TII Group) is launching a new cab for its Truckwiesel (known as the Wiesel) swap body and semi-trailer transporter.
New features include an enlarged windscreen for optimum all-round visibility, a maximum low access height and a range of ergonomic features. There are mounting options for data terminals and added storage possibilities. It is also available as an emission-free version with an electric drive.
In related news, German logistics service provider DB Schenker is testing an automated Wiesel at its site in Nuremberg. Erik Wirsing, vice president global innovation at Schenker said, “digitalisation improves efficiency throughout the entire transportation ecosystem. The use of driverless transportation systems is already an important component of our logistics processes. The evaluation of the test phase will show how we integrate the system into our overland transportation system.”
