After three generations of special vehicle inventors and 100 years of experience, Coxx Mobile Systems have put full focus making their two product lines of smart distribution solutions available for a broader audience. “Why settle for less, when you can enjoy higher efficiency, volume, load capacity, comfort and ergonomics,” says Robert Cox, the highly ambitious fourth generation entrepreneur in the company. “Distribution is often the motor behind a company. Let it run”. It starts with a smart business model. The X-Low product line of lowered floor chassis is completely modular like Meccano. All chassis components have been pre-produced, ready for assembly. This makes customisation possible, within serial production. With low costs and shorter lead times, it is a win-win for all. By keeping all components in stock, the company can build any type and dimen22 | Issue 29 | May 2016

sion of chassis within a week. In their assembly facility they are flexible enough for single unit orders. Various partnerships and a lean production method make the business scalable for orders of up to several hundred chassis. By working with a large array of bodybuilders, Coxx Mobile Systems are able to deliver complete solutions, or just chassis-cabs as a framework for whatever application. Endless applications Lowered floor, lightweight construction, high-strength Domex® material, flexible dimensions and standard air suspension make the X-Low chassis a perfect base for many applications. Think for instance about market trucks, mobile offices or campers. Such a broad target audience can benefit from the many innovative features of the Coxx Mobile Systems chassis. “Even with our still passive market approach, already 75 per cent of our turnover comes from abroad. We’re now

looking for distributors to channel and control the growing demand. The market potential is enormous!” explains Cox. Speaking of the company’s LiftBoxx system, Cox explains: “It isn’t a vehicle, but a complete distribution solution”. With a loading floor at ground level, transporting goods cannot be done any quicker or with such ease. With the interchangeable distribution units, the Coxx LiftBoxx can replace multiple vehicles at once and comes at the top of the innovation pyramid. People often compare the LiftBoxx with a regular distribution truck, but it is so much more. When looked at as a sustainable investment in making city distribution more efficient, the LiftBoxx is an eye opener that can potentially change the game of logistics.
