2.300 Krone swap bodies sold to Seaco Global


Hermes Germany has spent a hundred million Euros on overhauling its logistics infrastructure. Seaco Global, known as a specialized division of the world’s biggest container rental operator, has enlarged its fleet with the addition of 2.300 Krone swap bodies for rental to Hermes.
The first 300 units were handed over in Bad Rappenau at the opening of Hermes’ logistics hub - fourteen additional hubs are to follow. Volker Stenzel, who is Head of Equipment & Carrier at Hermes Germany, emphasizes the importance of their choice to partner with Seaco Global and Krone.
“A fresh infrastructure with reliable products perfectly matches the customers’ requirements and makes shipping safer, faster and smoother.” Seaco Global’s fleet is made of 90 % swap bodies equipped with shutter doors. Hermes mainly uses the codified swap bodies for road and rail transport.
“The fleet of Krone swap bodies Seaco Global rents to Hermes have reinforced side panels, which guarantee strength and longevity in the rental business,“ says Ingo Geerdes, Head of Key Account Management, Krone Fleet & Krone Used.
Geerdes, Volker Stenzel, Head of Equipment and Carrier, Hermes Germany GmbH, Stephan Richter, Managing Director of National Rental by Seaco and Bernd Brüggen, Managing Director of Krone Commercial Vehicles Group, happily concluded the contract.

KRONE Commercial Vehicle Group
The Krone family business is among the market leaders in commercial vehicle and agricultural machinery production. Its product portfolio in the commercial vehicle division includes curtainsided semitrailers, temperature controlled semitrailers, dry freight semitrailers, container chassis, swap systems, general trailers, motor vehicle superstructures, and CEP vehicles for parcel services.
Customer requirements go far beyond the vehicle. Krone offers a comprehensive service package that includes telematics, spare-parts, financing, rental vehicles and used vehicle sales. In-house components, such as the Krone trailer axle and the all-in-Krone trailer, ensure that the customer can rely on one contact person for all their questions.
In five decades, the Krone Group's annual sales volume has increased from approximately 8.5 million euros to nearly 1.8 billion euros today. The Krone Group's main revenue generators are commercial vehicles (Fahrzeugwerk Krone and subsidiaries) with sales of approximately 1.2 billion euros. Krone has manufactured around 48,000 vehicle units (approx. 37,000 semitrailers and nearly 11,000 swap systems); Germany continues to be the strongest sales market at 30 percent, followed by Western Europe (41%), and Eastern Europe (27%).
The Krone Group employs 4,300 workers worldwide. This strong increase in the number of employees is due to the growth of the Krone Commercial Vehicle Group; approx. 2,500 employees are currently working on vehicle production at the Werlte, Herzlake (both at Emsland/Lower Saxony), Dinklage (at Osnabruck), Lübtheen (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), and Tire (Turkey) locations.
