Schmitz cracks down on fuel theft with TankSafe device

25 June 2014 #CV Sector #News #Sales #Trailer

News from Schmitz: TISS has announced a Europe-wide partnership with Schmitz Cargobull, Europe’s largest Trailer Manufacturer, for the supply of its award-winning TankSafe fuel security devices. The agreement means TankSafe is available through Schmitz’s aftermarket network and as a factory fit option.

Signed earlier in 2013, the agreement has reaped immediate returns for Schmitz customers with thousands of units already supplied prior to the anti-siphon being officially launched.

Protection of refrigerated trailers’ fuel tanks is vitally important to operators. But also the prevention of fuel loss from refrigerated trailers is doubly important because the diesel is also used to run the cooling unit for the refrigerated trailer. Strict legislation decrees that temperature parameters inside the trailer have to be held up strictly to exact defined minus degrees due to the transported goods and have to be documented for the entire transport.

The Schmitz TankSafe Anti-Siphon has been developed specifically for Schmitz’ refrigerated trailer range. The bespoke design incorporates the unique TankSafe patent-pending solid dome base, which ensures it offers the most effective protection against 3rd party fuel theft. Additionally, at the request of Schmitz, the Anti-Siphon has been designed to prevent overfilling.

TISS’ Managing Director Ryan Wholey, “Partnering with Europe’s largest trailer manufacturer is a real indication that TISS are recognised as the World’s Leading Fuel Security Specialists.  I look forward to enjoying a long and rewarding partnership with Schmitz Cargobull.”

Alois Kerkhoff, Schmitz Cargobull’s Head of Development in Vreden, added, “Having assessed the anti-siphon market, it was clear from initial tests that TISS’ TankSafe range were the most effective devices. We were very impressed with TISS’ consistent high level of service and technical expertise, including the rapid development of prototypes at very short notice to satisfy our requirements.”
