Schmitz Cargobull acquired Spanish telematics specialist for refrigerated logistics
Schmitz Cargobull AG has acquired a majority stake in Atlantis Global System (AGS), the leading Spanish manufacturer of telematics solutions for monitoring and maintaining the cold chain. With its innovative telematics solutions, AGS is represented in most of the 50 largest companies for the transport of temperature-controlled goods in Spain.

With this acquisition, Schmitz Cargobull, Europe's largest manufacturer of semi-trailers, will continue increasing its leadership for the most modern telematics system for refrigerated semi-trailers together with AGS. A system that fulfils the highest requirements in refrigerated transport and along the entire cold chain.

The AGS telematics system for real-time refrigeration data will be available with immediate effect for all Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated semi-trailers produced at the Zaragoza plant. The data from the TrailerConnect telematics system, which Schmitz Cargobull integrates as standard in all its semi-trailers, will also be made available on the AGS telematics platform. On customer request, the telematics data from the AGS system will be available within the Schmitz Cargobull TrailerConnect portal.

Atlantis Global System, AGS, will remain an independent cold chain specialist within the Schmitz Cargobull Group and will continue to operate independently in the market to ensure the best service for customers.

Founder Rafael del Pino, who will continue as CEO of AGS, explains: "The partnership with Schmitz Cargobull is an important step to strengthen and further develop the solutions developed by AGS in Spain. It offers a great opportunity to promote new products and further develop advanced fleet management solutions."
