Asda takes 45 Cartwright reefers

Altrincham, Cheshire, UK: Asda has taken delivery of 45 dual-temperature refrigerated longer length trailers, built by Cartwright.

Cartwright worked closely with Asda to produce the longer trailers which will operate out of Asda’s Falkirk, Bedford and Lutterworth sites.

“This has been a very exciting project for both Cartwright and ASDA. The end product is the result of a committee approach with Asda unions, operatives and their engineers involved in the specification and design. In all about 30 people have been involved so it has been a great team effort with our people,” says Darren Holland group sales director, Cartwright

The trailers carry frozen and chilled produce and are command steer which is the Cartwright preference on 15.65m overall length trailers. Otherwise the trailers have standard specification with aerodynamic features of Cartwright’s Cheetah system.

Chris Hall, national transport manager, Asda, says: “Our investment in a new fleet of dual temperature refrigerated longer semi-trailers is not only evidence of our continued ‘green’ policy, but of our ongoing partnership with Cartwright who have worked closely with our teams on this order.

“This is undoubtedly one of our most exciting distribution initiatives and will help us to maintain our position at the forefront of innovation in retail distribution.”
