Development of ICTS in Poland
ICTS Group has two new depots in two strategic transport locations in Poland: Gdansk and Lodz.
ICTS is an active presence in this part of Poland, offering rental of standard trailers and various types of container chassis. Comprehensive technical services including repairs, maintenance and technical inspections can also be provided. Gdansk has been chosen because the Port of Gdansk is one of the largest seaports on the Baltic Sea.
Addresses new depots:

Pilotów 8 
80-180 Kowale

Kępica 54
95-080 Tuszyn
The second new ICTS depot is situated in Lodz, in the central part of the country. In the Lodz depot, rental of various types of trailers is offered such as mega trailers, standard huckepack trailers with TUV XL certificate, container chassis and other variations depending on the customer’s needs. Together with a local reliable partner in this area of Poland, ICTS can also offer technical support and a workshop is available for all existing and new customers.
ICTS’ lightweight chassis at Verhoek Europe

Verhoek Europe manages partial and full trailer loads across almost all European countries.  With an extensive, modern fleet of over 1000 units, equipped with satellite communication, Verhoek Europe can offer various transport solutions.
Verhoek Europe has an establishment in Oostende (BE), among others. ICTS Group is based in Zeebrugge from where trailer rental, field services and workshop activities are offered. Following a series of meetings, a good collaboration has therefore been established between the two companies. One of the Unique Selling Points of ICTS Services in Zeebrugge is the possibility to perform annual inspections (MOT) on Dutch trailers according to the guidelines of the RDW.
Verhoek Europe was also looking for a lightweight container chassis, in which the ICTS Group had invested a great deal in the recent years. The partnership was therefore successfully established. Forerunners had been delivered previous to the new chassis series so Verhoek was able to be operational only weeks after the cooperation agreement was signed.

Barsan Global Logistics invited ICTS to quote for 20 additional double stock mega curtain sided trailers for its operations out of Nürnberg, Germany. As Barsan Global Logistics is already renting 40 double stock mega curtain sided trailers and 1 garment box from ICTS, the appointment of a local service partner became obvious. ICTS appointed Mercedes as its local service provider on Wednesday 27 February 2019 after a closing meeting in Nürnberg.

Mercedes-Benz-Nürnberg will check all the ICTS rental trailers every 6 months, for 7 years. As Mercedes is also providing the trucks, Mercedes-Benz-Nürnberg will now look after the maintenance of all combined truck & trailers units of Barsan Global Logistics in Nürnberg.
Market Information 

After Brexit, trailers coming from the UK will need to be registered in the UK first before being allowed to drive into the rest of Europe.  
Stricter requirements for bumpers on trailers
Trailers need to be equipped with a bumper, so that other road users won’t become stuck under the vehicle in the case of a collision. The regulations for bumpers are established in ECE-Regulations 58 and apply to all EU countries. Recent changes to these regulations concern lower mounting of the bumper to further reduce the chance of under-run and greater strength requirements to prevent the bumper from breaking off.

In practice, this means that the maximum height, measured from the bottom of the bumper to the road, must be lowered from 550 to 450 mm. The bumper also needs to be mounted less deep under the vehicle. During crash tests, the bumper must be resistant to larger forces.

The new regulation applies from 1 September 2019 for new vehicles and trailers (above 8 tonnes GVW). All new to be registered vehicles must meet these requirements from September 2021. The new regulations do not apply to existing vehicles.
