Carrier Transicold is now the primary supplier of temperature-controlled transport systems for Arla Foods’ refrigerated fleet.

Gordon Irvine, technical director (distribution), Arla Foods, says: “Specifying Vector 1550 systems is a natural progression for us following the performance of earlier Vector family technology in our fleet. Carrier Transicold promised a lighter, more fuel-efficient and more cost-effective solution for mono-temperature application and that’s exactly what we received. The system is extremely efficient and is a much more optimised unit closer to our operational requirements.”
