Carrier fridge units for UK grocery distributor

UK distributor James Hall & Co. has taken delivery of four new trailers fitted with Vector 1950 multi-temperature (MT) systems from Carrier Transicold.

Mounted to 11.2m Gray & Adams trailers, the new units will deliver a mix of ambient, fresh and frozen produce to the 540 SPAR outlets it services across northern England.

“After hearing great things about the Vector 1950 MT unit, we decided to put it to the test for ourselves with an initial order of four units,” said Ian Farnworth, Fleet Engineering Manager, James Hall & Co.

“The nature of our business means trailer utilisation is high and ensuring reliable performance from our fleet is critical to keep our business running smoothly. Based on what we have experienced so far, we feel safe knowing that the new Carrier Transicold systems will prove reliable additions to our fleet.”

With a refrigeration capacity of 18,875 watts, the Vector 1950 MT can reportedly maintain precise temperature control of sensitive goods on intensive distribution routes with multiple door openings.

The trailers join a refrigerated fleet of 44 trailers and 37 rigid trucks already operated by James Hall & Co.
