US OEM, Wabash National, has received recognition for its zero-emission composite refrigerated trailer featuring Molded Structural Composite (MSC).
It was recognised as a Top 20 Product in a publication published by Bobit Business Media.
Wabash National commercialised its zero-emission composite refrigerated trailer in 2020. This all-electric refrigerated trailer leverages MSC technology to downsize the energy required to keep produce cold. The lightweight MSC technology enables battery-powered refrigeration and solar technology from partners like eNow and Carrier Transicold for the most thermally efficient, eco-friendly refrigerated haul available on the market.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised in the transportation, logistics and distribution industry with this Top 20 Products award,” said Wabash National Senior Director of Product Development, Mark Ehrlich.
“The trucking industry has long been looking for viable zero-emission solutions.
“Until now, there hasn’t been a trailer manufacturer that could demonstrate a roadworthy solution that encompasses thermal efficiency and alternative energy, as well as lower operating costs, in a reefer.
“Wabash is the visionary leader that can deliver sustainable solutions. This is the first time a major trailer innovation has been coupled with a major alternative energy innovation that results in breakthrough customer value and reduces fleets’ carbon footprints. We’re excited to see more of these trailers hit the highways.”
The Top 20 Products are selected by an editorial team with input from an editorial advisory board. Products are evaluated in three areas: Innovation, ability to address important industry issues, and potential to improve a fleet’s bottom line.
