New liner for tote crates from Polar Thermal

Warminster, Wiltshire, UK: Polar Thermal has a new liner for its insulated tote crates.

Dot.Box Crate liners eliminate need for refrigerated delivery vans

Dot.Box Crate liners eliminate the need for expensive, refrigerated delivery vans for long to medium stop/start trips in town and country, the company says.

The Dot.Box will retain a stable temperature between +2⁰C – +8⁰C for at least 12 hours without breaking the 8⁰C barrier. Tests with a national farm delivery service show a very large margin of safety, the company says.

Dot.Box inserts fit into existing food totes. Made from lightweight, washable and recyclable PP foam, the insert and lid, which holds two (optional) cool blocks, is locked into place with the crate handles. Internal dividers can segregate frozen from chilled if required.

“The arrival of Dot.Box will facilitate the growing movement from diesel to non-polluting electric vehicles for city delivery work, with its requirement for multiple stop and starts. For organic producers Dot.Box will firmly establish your environmental credentials,” Polar Thermal Packaging says.
