Kögel has set market trends in box bodies and especially in refrigerated boxes, has been a pioneer of combined transport and with the 1.3 metre extended trailer, we are in the top league in terms of environmental and climate protection. It pays tribute to the reputation of the entire industry to honour people who have also rendered outstanding services to the further development of logistics and supply chain management. We are very pleased to be part of the Logistics Hall of Fame in the future,” says Josef Warmeling, Managing Director at Kögel.
