Clever Connections

The future in our grasp

Under the banner “Clever Connections”, Krone invites you to attend the 2018 IAA in Hanover from 20 – 27 September.

hose interested in attending can visit our Stand (E33) in Hall 27 at the IAA where they will be able to envisage how Krone intelligently connects those involved in the world of transportation and offers excellent added value. “For safe transportation of goods and prompt delivery of all important transport data, we are already combining our products with intelligent services for increased mobility and more efficient logistics,” explains Bernard Krone, Managing Partner of the Krone Group. “Even artificial intelligence will play its part in trailers of the future – a technology which promises its users even better value for money.” At the conference, Krone will also present the progress it has made with its intelligent loading area recognition system, Smart Scan, its modular manufacturing system for greater individuality and even faster availability, as well as its innovative delivery concepts for the last mile: CEP-Shuttle and Rytle.

Krone is continuously developing its product portfolio. The Profi Liner has been completely remodelled and many aspects have been optimised. The same goes for the Cool Liner: It not only offers outstanding cooling properties, but also meets almost every possible requirement for temperature-controlled transportation, together with our very own telematics. Also new is the Krone trailer axle for high-volume vehicles such as the Mega Liner. Those who attend the IAA can also see many more of Krone’s highlights in the outdoor area of the convention.


Krone is preparing trailers for the future: Important documents such as shipping papers, certificates, maintenance documents and information are all digitally accessible. In the event of damage, it is possible to gain direct access to the vehicle-specific spare parts catalogue, for example. Telematics allows a wide range of functions such as the Door Protect door locking system, which protects valuable shipments. With Fair Care, Krone combines flexible service modules for trailer maintenance and repair work. This provides shipping agents with information about trailers as a means of investment, allowing them to benefit from innovative digital technologies and to reduce unscheduled downtime.


Smart innovations by Krone make transport services even more efficient. The Smart Trailer Check ensures optimal transport conditions before the vehicle departs. The loading area recognition system Smart Scan allows for quick and easy viewing of free space in the trailer – the additional connection to freight exchanges within the Smart Capacity Management system ensures that the available space is used as efficiently as possible. All of this is interconnected within the Krone telematics portal, which cleverly makes transporting goods even more efficient. Real smart.


What are the advantages of a digitally networked fleet? Digitisation specialists will be on hand at Krone’s stand at the IAA to explain how. The trailer and its components are connected using artificial intelligence, allowing for greater mobility and more efficient logistics. This means Krone can guarantee the proper transportation of goods with all of the relevant data to hand. And with its alternatively powered CEP vehicle and the Rytle cargo bikes, the company offers efficient solutions for smart city logistics.
