Cirencester, UK: Whites Transport Services has updated its fleet with ten Chereau single-deck trailers fitted with Carrier Transicold Vector 1950 systems for use on the firm’s European express service.
Whites Transport Services, which transports fresh hanging meat, made Carrier Transicold its preferred supplier citing the reliability and long service life of its 20 trailers mounted with the previous generation Vector 1850 system.
“Vehicle downtime simply isn’t an option on our non-stop service where we have drivers positioned along the route,” said Pete White, transport manager, Whites Transport Services.
“Thanks to Carrier Transicold’s network of maintenance providers, we have peace of mind that should our trucks run into any problems, they can be back on the road quickly, regardless of where they are in Europe.”
Whites Transport Services’ non-stop European express service, which places drivers along the route in a relay, allows a vehicle to reach its destination in the quickest time possible.
“The fact that our previous Carrier-equipped trailers were still going strong after nine years, despite how hard we worked them, is testament to their reliability, and is the main reason we continue to specify 100 per cent Carrier Transicold equipment on new assets,” White said.
“We like to have the very best for our fleet, and for us, that means Carrier Transicold systems on Chereau trailers.”
The new units are expected to clock up almost 100,000 miles annually, delivering hanging meat and palletised goods throughout the UK and mainland Europe and returning with fresh or frozen local produce.
Whites Transport Services was founded in 1992 and operates 20 trucks and 30 refrigerated trailers.
