IMAP has advised Trailer Dynamics on a strategic investment by TRANE Technologies

Trailer Dynamics GmbH, a technology innovator for eTrailers, has expanded its shareholder base by adding Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT) as part of a capital increase

Trailer Dynamics GmbH, a technology innovator for eTrailers, has expanded its shareholder base by adding Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT) as part of a capital increase. Trane Technologies, a leader in sustainable transport temperature control solutions and its brand Thermo King, has become a strategic minority investor and cooperation partner of Trailer Dynamics, alongside German trailer manufacturer Krone. The alliance will drive innovations that enhance efficiency and accelerate the transition to zero-emission transportation in Europe and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Trailer Dynamics has developed a unique solution for integrating an additional electric drive train into the eTrailer. The eTrailer offers supporting propulsion that, in combination with conventional tractor units with internal combustion engines, enables a significant reduction in diesel consumption and CO² emissions. When combined with an electrically powered tractor unit, it increases range and is capable of operating electrified or conventional trailer refrigeration units (TRUs).

Abdullah Jaber, managing director and CEO of Trailer Dynamics, is excited about the partnership. "We look forward to combining our eTrailer technology and experience with Thermo King’s industry-leading knowledge to create outstanding products together and accelerate Europe’s transition to zero-emission transportation. We would like to thank the IMAP team for their professional preparation, advice and tireless efforts in making this future-proof solution possible."

Thermo King – by Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT), a global climate innovator – is a worldwide leader in sustainable transport climate control solutions. Thermo King has been providing transport temperature control solutions for a variety of applications, including trailers, truck bodies, buses, air, shipboard containers, and railway cars since 1938.

“We are excited to join forces with Trailer Dynamics and invest together in cutting-edge electrified trailer technology that will help accelerate decarbonization efforts within the commercial transport industry and cold chain,” said Claudio Zanframundo, president Thermo King EMEA.

The IMAP team with Dr. Carsten Lehmann, Michael Knoll, Mehmet Koc and Sebastian Achleitner exclusively advised Trailer Dynamics in all phases of the structured process until the successful closing.
