Flexibility, compatibility, stability and safety are the basic parameters for a future-oriented motor pool. JOST ensures that these parameters can be satisfied with its international quality standards and a global sales and after sales service network.

Bolters with integrated twist locks connect containers to the carrier vehicle. The twist locks must always be used as set out in the instructions in the operating manual for
the relevant vehicle. In Germany you must comply with the TÜV regulations and the Road Traffic Act StVZO, as well as the existing standards.
