Sortimo International GmbH presented spectacular, innovative products at the 66th IAA in Hanover, the largest commercial vehicle trade fair worldwide. The newly developed products that the market leader for van racking systems exhibited continuously attracted the attention of the visitors. Yet again Sortimo surprised the entire branch with the world premiere of the new cargo cycle ProCargo CT1 and the Pick-up solution X-Unit. In addition the trade visitors displayed enormous interest in the digital platform of the Mobile Material Services. Furthermore, for Sortimo load securing and high quality, crash tested as well as trade specific van racking systems are a given.
The secret to a successful IAA commercial vehicle trade fair in Hanover from Sortimos side, lay not only in the inviting stand concept, but primarily in the innovative product highlights, which drew the trade visitors and media to the Sortimo stand like a magnet. The company impressively demonstrated that the future will not only lie in van racking systems but rather in intelligent mobile transport solutions which cater to the megatrends of urbanisation, digitalisation and globalisation. At this year’s IAA commercial vehicle trade fair, Sortimo gave answers to its customers and automotive branches, which others have not yet even started thinking about.
Sortimo has provided clear evidence that it can do a lot more than just van racking systems. The manufacturer for mobile solutions presented an absolutely innovative product, a cargo cycle, which will take over the market as of May in the coming year.
The ProCargo CT1 will revolutionise mobile services and is the trend-setting solution for all urban service technicians, logistic companies and tradesmen who have no time to be stuck in traffic. The cargo cycle is an optimum alternative to vans and cars in urban areas or factory traffic, as it does not need any fuel; it is emission-free and requires no driver’s licence.
The technically exceedingly high quality equipping with a patented tilting technology has completely exceeded all expectation – the response from logistic companies, tradesmen, the automotive sector and fleet management was overwhelming.
Sortimo HD X-Unit
The X-Unit, which swings freely over the loading space, attracted a lot of attention amongst the visitors interested in the Pick-ups sector. The X-Unit is particularly suitable for everyday use due to the combination of its extensive and dry storage space with a lock, load securing and an optimum loading space utilisation. The weatherproof transport possibility showed many Pick-up fans a new, innovative solution for the secure transport of tools and machinery on the loading platform.
Mobile Material Service
The partners Sortimo, Mercedes-Benz and fischer have brought material management in service vehicles to a new level by means of intelligent networking. The continuous visitor interest in the Mobile Material Service clearly proved this. Parts can be ordered with one click and delivered directly into the vehicle. Thanks to Near-Field-Communication-Tags, information about the filling status of van racking systems can be retrieved, from cases and BOXXes onto a smartphone or tablet. The user carries out the necessary reordering via the Sortimo Refill App and defines the location of his transporter as delivery location. The delivery is carried out over night, directly into your vehicle. The logistician can localise the service vehicle via GPS in the delivery App, and also open and close the vehicle via the APP. The Mercedes-Benz Driver App always enables the technician to check the status of his vehicle. He can for example check the location of his vehicle and whether the doors are locked. Furthermore, it is possible in the fleet management portal to check and see which technician has ordered which items and when.
In addition to the three product highlights Sortimo presented a multitude of further products and optimisations, which markedly simplify the workday of the tradesman, the service technicians, the logisticians and also of the business fleet managers. After all, this is the objective that the company had set itself a long time ago: to provide mobile solutions for its customers which have a real added value in the workday and to always be a step ahead.
