3 Distribution offers multi-temperature deliveries

Kings Lynn, UK: 3 Distribution now offers split temperature deliveries – previously it concentrated on mono-temperature frozen groupage.

Patrick Finch, director, 3 Distribution says: “We are now more established as a business and with that comes a requirement to move forward and widen the service offering for both existing and potential customers.”

“In the current market you can’t afford to stand still, so we listen to the needs of customers and bring in equipment that enables us to accommodate those needs. The new multi-temperature trailers mean we can now look at chilled, frozen and ambient work and combine these where necessary.”

3 Distribution moves into multi-temperature work with four Vector 1850 units from Carrier Transicold UK

3 Distribution has taken delivery of its first four multi-temperature Vector 1850 units from Carrier Transicold UK.

“Carrier Transicold equipment has always performed well for us so it was natural to turn to them when we decided to enter the multi-temperature market,”  he says.

“In addition to the first-class temperature integrity we achieve with our Carrier units, we also believe in building strong relationships with suppliers. The team at Carrier Transicold UK has never let us down.”

A high refrigeration capacity (18,000 watts at 0 degrees Celsius), and the unique ability to heat and cool different compartments simultaneously, makes the Vector 1850 MT unit the ideal solution for 3 Distribution’s expansion into the multi-temperature market.

3 Distribution says all refrigerated trailers that come up for renewal in future, typically after 10 years on the fleet, will be replaced with multi-temperature capability fridge units. All trailers on the fleet also feature Carrier’s Foretrack fleet management and satellite tracking systems.
