Schmitz Cargobull AG is Europe's largest manufacturer of semi-trailers, trailers and bodies. The company manufactures in seven production facilities, mostly in Germany.

It supplies the markets in Europe and the Near and Middle East through its own distribution structure and service partners. Since 2012 emerging markets in Asia and China have been developed through a joint venture with the Chinese Dongfeng Motor Company, one of the world's largest truck manufacturers.

The first joint project is the construction of a state-of-the-art production facility in the industrial city of Wuhan in central China.

agiplan factory planning

agiplan accompanied Schmitz Cargobull through all stages of the factory and production planning, from the first draft through to commissioning. The project was complex: the product was redesigned at the same time as the factory was being planned. To this end, many departments with their head office in Altenberge had to be included - often with very tight deadlines.

Together with Schmitz Cargobull, agiplan defined the production and assembly processes, supported the procurement of equipment and facilities, and designed the layout of the factory and the building specifications.
