"Driving tomorrow" is the theme of this year's IAA Commercial Vehicle trade show which takes place from September 20–27 in Hanover. At the industry get-together, Transporter Industry International GmbH (TII Group) is presenting its future-proof transport solutions for logistics yards and on the road. At the company's E31 Stand in Hall 27, the focus of attention will be on the Wiesel. The successful swap body transporter boasts a new driver's cab that has been ergonomically optimized in accordance with customer-specific requirements.
The Wiesel, or more specifically Truckwiesel, is designed for the transport of swap bodies and semi-trailers within logistics yards or terminals. Customers of the extremely maneuverable vehicle include logistics companies, mail order businesses, postal operators and parcel service providers.
"Our swap body transporter make[s] the intralogistics of our customers far more economical and efficient," says Jürgen Dirr, Area Sales Manager and responsible for Wiesel and Truckwiesel business activities at TII's Ulm-based subsidiary Kamag. "In order to keep abreast of the market, we are constantly optimizing our products and solutions." Thus, for example, the successful swap body transporter is also available as an emission-free version complete with electric drive.
The latest development is a new cab which was realized by Kamag. Innovations include an enlarged windscreen for optimum all-round visibility, a maximum low access height and a range of ergonomic features. In addition, there are mounting options for data terminals and convenient storage possibilities.
At its stand the TII Group will also be providing insights into its research workshop activities. For example, the company is presenting its autonomous transport solutions for driverless oncoming traffic operations at logistics yards. In the outdoor area (Stand M52), semi-modular platform trailers for road transportation assignments under 100 tonnes are the main attraction. These vehicles are manufactured by TII subsidiaries, Scheuerle and Nicolas, and make a convincing case due to their low dead weight, maximum maneuverability along with an extremely compact construction. Among other things, they are used to transport construction machinery, transformers or large plant components.
