The new V.KO Dry van bodies have been designed for the home delivery market and are part of the manufacturer’s new focus on last-mile logistics.
The V.KO Dry van bodies will be supplied as modular kits to commercial vehicle OEMs – Schmitz says the bodies can be built by two people within two hours.
The kit consists of custom-developed GRP sandwich panels with a PU foam core. The panels are 20mm thick and meet the DIN EN 12642 Code XL standard for maximum load security.
A translucent roof and two-wing doors are included as standard; optional extras such as access ladders are also available.
Loads can be secured using the standard airline rails, and custom load securing elements – such as lashing bars or combo-anchor rails – are also available. Load securing rails can be ordered in a height of 900mm, or two rails in heights of 600 and 1,200mm.
The new bodies will be available for the UK market during Q2 2017.
