Automatic tractor-trailer couplings from AUCOS-Systems GmbH in Germany.

With Aucos Coup (Coupling), tractors can be automatically coupled with braked and illuminated trailers, without the driver leaving the cab to manually connect the brake lines and the power plug.  At the moment of coupling, Aucos Coup automatically transmits the air brake signals and electrical power from the tractor to the trailer.”

By reducing the coupling time to zero, Aucos-Couplings reduces the number of trucks needed for your operation and needles to say reduces your operational cost as well. Another aspect is terminal congestion and safety.  Our system creates significant higher safety because the driver won’t have to leave the cabin anymore. Less tractors benefit terminal congestion directly.
