ICTS Group keeps expanding and will soon have more than 1800 rental trailers in five countries. The group also offers a new concept of workshops and field services
Rental trailers for P&O Ferrymasters, Dachser and Bos Logistics
Following the recent announcement of the delivery of a new series of Schmitz Cargobull trailers by ICTS to Dachser Netherlands, ICTS Group is expanding their rental fleet with the delivery of 25 new Kögel curtain sider trailers to P&O Ferrymasters in the Netherlands and 40 new Kässbohrer lightweight container chassis to P&O Ferrymasters in Belgium. Also a new series of box trailers and mega trailers for air freight was provided to Bos Logistics.
In addition, ICTS Group has made significant developments for intermodal transport. 45 ft. containers are transported across Europe by rail, ferry and road transport. Due to the maximum weight allowance for roads, ICTS Group, together with Kässbohrer, has made efforts to develop a 45 ft. lightweight container chassis that will optimally serve the rental market for intermodal transport.
APM Container terminals
The cooperation between ICTS and several quaysides, has resulted in the delivery by ICTS Group of various types of container chassis to APM terminals to perform the necessary tests. At the new container terminals ‘The Maasvlakte 2’ in Rotterdam that include APM Terminals, ICTS material is used by APM Terminals to optimize the processes of various types of cranes and reduce the downtime of ships.
Workshop activities and field services
In addition to trailer rental, ICTS Group now offers various workshop activities and a new range of field services to provide customers with a range of solutions for fleet management.
For example, the ICTS Group is authorized to perform APK-inspections of Dutch trailers in the Belgian workshops. ICTS also has the permits to access restricted areas at rail terminals, airports or quaysides to repair trailers or fix loads. This limits downtime and prevents consequential damage or fines for customers. Bos Logistics, LKW Walter and Olof MTT are among those that already use these full-service solutions.
