Kässbohrer intermodal curtainsiders in ICTS fleet are suitable for both huckepack and ferry transportation with reinforced king-pin area and unique suspension design to meet the challenges of complex intermodal loading and unloading operations.
In addition to Kässbohrer’s intermodal curtainsider, ICTS Group preferred other models of Kässbohrer semi-trailers in its fleet, such as Kässbohrer general cargo curtainsider, K.SCX X, and light container chassis, K.SHG L.

Equipped with detach-and-plug technology to carry both 40 ft. and 45 ft. containers, K.SHG L eliminates complex front container locks positioning process. While allowing higher payload, K.SHG L's design also allows the safe and easy loading of containers with only 4 locks.
In 1893, when Karl Kässbohrer founded his Wagenfabrik in Ulm, he redefined what trailer engineering could achieve. Today, thanks to over 120 years of staying true to his ethos, Kässbohrer products are used in more than 55 countries, have innovated in more ways and have a broader product line than Mr. Kässbohrer would ever have thought possible.
In the European semi-trailer industry, Kässbohrer stands out with its incomparably wide product range, including curtainsiders, tanks and silos, low-beds and low-loaders, platforms, tipper and container chassis.
Kässbohrer’s success is built on the spirit of excellence that drives Kässbohrer engineers to transcend the ordinary to achieve a level of efficiency, simplicity and reliability seldom seen. The result is a range of semi-trailers that are economical, durable and extremely easy to handle. Our promise to you can be summarized in one word: ’Enginuity ’. We combine modern “engineering” with “ingenuity” – the inventive spirit.
Currently, Kässbohrer vehicles are produced at 4 different locations. Two of the locations are in Germany, respectively Goch and Ulm Plant. Vehicles for the Russian and Central Asian market are produced in Tula Oblast, while Kässbohrer’s biggest production facility is located in Adapazari – an exceptional example of a state-of-the-art semi-trailer factory in Europe.
