UK Supermarket chain ASDA has placed an order for 124 Vector 1950 MT trailer refrigeration units from Carrier Transicold UK.
According to Carrier Transicold, the order was placed following the success of 20 double-deck trailers with Vector 1950 MT refrigeration units it supplied in late 2014.
The new Vector 1950 MT units are reportedly being mounted to 118 Schmitz Cargobull 13.6-metre dual-compartment reefers and six Cartwright dual-compartment urban trailers.
According to Carrier, ASDA selected the Vector 1950 MT units for their rapid pull-down speed, precise temperature control and E-Drive technology.
“Environmental performance, cold chain protection and fleet uptime are three of the biggest considerations when specifying new fridge units for our fleet,” said Sean Clifton, Senior Manager, National Fleets at ASDA.
“The Vector systems deliver in all of these areas. Put simply, they don’t give us any issues.”
Each Vector unit has also been designed to integrate with ASDA’s fleet telematics solution, providing access to temperature-critical information at any point in the journey, said Carrier.
