26 May 2023

Leading semi-trailer manufacturer Kässbohrer and Speed Oy established their new partnership. Recently, the company added 20 Kässbohrer non-extendable light container chassis K.SHG L vehicles specially developed for its Nordic operations. The container chassis are linked via dolly and are operated as A-double combination.

Founded in 1992, Speed Oy offers unit transports and delivers containers from all container ports in Finland. Together with their offices in Vuosaari Harbour, Helsinki; in Mussalo Harbour, Kotka; in Port of Rauma and in Hollola, Lahti area, Speed Oy supports shipping companies, their agents, Finnish import and export companies, and forwarding agencies.

With their new Kässbohrer non-extendable K.SHG L container chassis vehicles specially engineered to provide ease of maneuverability for longer trailer combinations compliant with Nordic regulations, Speed Oy will increase operational efficiency and allow higher payload and lower fuel consumption.

Mr. Tuomo Vallas, General Manager of Speed Oy, Mr. Matti Virtanen, Sales Director of Vak Oy, and Mr. Mehmet Önen, Head of Key Account Management of Kässbohrer, attended the delivery ceremony and detailed their newly established partnership.

Mr. Tuomo Vallas stated “As Speed Oy, we already know Kässbohrer container chassis vehicles. We preferred Kässbohrer vehicles as we trust their quality and robustness.

The Kässbohrer Light Container Chassis offers to carry more weight without sacrificing its strength and durability. The Kässbohrer K. SHG L was redeveloped for meeting the flexibility need of our operations with the option to carry 40 ft. We operate our container chassis linked via dolly for A-double combination. With our new container chassis, we get one of the lightest combinations, allowing higher payload and lower fuel consumption.

The support from sales and after-sales teams makes it easy and efficient to work with Kässbohrer.”

Mr. Önen also shared his thoughts about the valuable cooperation: “As Kässbohrer, our main priority is to make developments to satisfy our customers’ operational needs by presenting the highest number of options to meet their unmet operational needs.

Designed specifically for our customer Speed Oy's Nordic operations, our robust Lightweight Container Chassis K.SHG L with higher payload capacity is very durable, longest, and lightweight, enabling our customers to achieve maximum efficiency in their operations. K.SHG L enables lower fuel consumption with a light chassis design.

Speed Oy operates by combining 2 container chassis via dolly reaching A-double combination. We have engineered our chassis to be easily maneuvered on existing roads, the finest example of design and engineering excellence. Speed Oy safely operates Kässbohrer A-double combinations.

As Kässbohrer, we meet the operational needs of our partners with our competent sales and after-sales support. We are very glad to build a partnership with Speed Oy. We will continue to develop our partnership with Speed Oy through our high-quality vehicles and the services we offer them.
