SEM Transport Solutions is a new product group of a series of innovative steering and suspension solutions for trailers for the commercial transport industry. Design, development and construction of the new systems take place entirely in the Benelux under close expert scrutiny, to guarantee superlative quality and in-service reliability.

With the addition of SEM, IMS Group now distributes a wide range of trailer steering solutions. The company extended its product offering in response to calls from transport operators to provide expertise and assistance in optimising the efficiency of their trailer fleets.

IMS Group can now prove that steered semi-trailers can be specified to replace rigid semi-trailers for deliveries in urban areas. This can increase usage and at the same time reduce the impact on the environment, thanks to greater loading volume and fewer transport movements.

Within IMS Group, SEM joins both VSE, GreenSteering and SAF-HOLLAND. VSE is the leading developer of intelligent steering systems for trailers, GreenSteering is our patented cable steering system characterised by its low weight and low installation height, while SAF-HOLLAND is the manufacturer of the INTRA proven, light self-steering axle.

Not only does SEM offer mechanical trailer steering solutions, it has also developed a new independent suspension system designed specifically to meet the needs of operators requiring higher load capacity within permitted trailer dimensions. It is this demand that has prompted the increased use of double deck trailers. Both SEM’s steering and independent suspension transport solutions are designed and built in the Netherlands to the most stringent quality control standards.
