Trailer Innovation 2021 - the award winners

The competition, which has been in existence since 2002 - in other words, for 18 years - has already put the innovative power of the trailer and body industry in the spotlight. With success: the variety of innovations is once again astonishing this year – even though the Corona crisis is currently presenting the entire commercial vehicle and transport sector with enormous problems and new tasks.

This year, 50 exciting innovations from 27 manufacturers from all over the world took part. The spectrum ranges from smart, environmentally friendly detail solutions to highly complex vehicle concepts and systems. More intelligent, lighter, more durable, more environmentally friendly, less maintenance, more aerodynamic, safer and, of course, more economical – these are the characteristics that distinguish the amazing variety of trailer innovations. The winners of the coveted trophies are selected by an independent jury of experts, consisting of 16 trade journalists from international transport magazines.

And the jury has made its decision: The 2021 prize winners in the seven categories Body, Chassis, Components, Concept, Environment, Safety and Smart Trailer have been determined.
