UK-based transport provider, Freshlinc, has taken another 60 Schmitz Cargobull multi-temperature refrigerated trailers powered by Carrier Transicold refrigeration units.
The trailers come equipped with a host of features that enable them to handle every element of Freshlinc’s operations, transporting fresh, chilled and horticultural products in the UK and Europe.
“Schmitz Cargobull’s trailers are simply outstanding,” said Freshlinc Fleet Manager, Andy Marchant. “They’re hard-wearing and easy to use. Our operations are very intense, so we need our trailers to be tough, but also cost-effective to operate – which is precisely why we use Schmitz Cargobull. Plus, the performance of the Carrier Transicold refrigeration units is simply first class.”
Freshlinc’s new reefers come equipped with a one-piece aluminium floor that is durable and offers a longer lifespan compared to conventional flooring.
The trailers also incorporate Schmitz Cargobull’s Ferroplast insulation, which reportedly offers greater insulation with a thinner panel – reducing the height of the trailer without compromising on internal volume and offering a lower tare weight.
Additionally, each trailer is equipped with an internal moving bulkhead fitted with expanding seals controlled from a central operating handle. This makes it easier for the operator to reposition the bulkhead wherever required, while providing effective insulation between compartments.
The trailers are spec’d with Carrier Transicold Vector 1950 MT units, marking Freshlinc’s return to a 100 per cent Carrier-cooled order.
The Vector 1950 MTs are Carrier Transicold’s most powerful refrigeration system, creating stable cooling across larger trailer volumes, with high airflow levels, unparalleled pull-down speeds and the ability to maintain precise temperature control throughout each trailer compartment.
Each Vector 1950 MT also boasts impressive environmental credentials, with the patented E-Drive all-electric technology.
Freshlinc also benefits from Carrier Transicold’s everCOLD full-service, repair and maintenance package, which provides annual temperature control testing and certification, full regulatory checks, and access to Carrier Transicold’s oneCALL 24/7 incident management service.
Last month, Schmitz Cargobull assigned Ultra-Seal as its exclusive tyre sealant supplier for select trailer builds.
