Boom uses electric cooling for UK deliveries

Venray, the Netherlands: Boom Transport, which transports chilled and frozen goods to and from the UK, is using a new environmentally friendly refrigerated trailer.

Boom Transport is using the THT New Cool’s emission-free electric transport cooling for customer Hessing.

The New Cool trailer fridge is powered by battery to give zero CO2 emissions and noise far below the Piek standard. The fridge works independently from the tractor with power supplied by an external charging cable and by recovering braking energy.

The new trailer will be used for the Hessing site in Belfeld, the Netherlands. From there Hessing supplies the British market with lettuce, cucumber and tomato.

“I am extremely proud that the THT New Cool concept is so well received in the logistics industry. Boom Transport will cross the Channel to Great Britain with the New Cool. A milestone and an ambitious step”, says Twan Heetkamp, director of THT New Cool (picture above left).

“Eventually London will also become an emission-free city. For our customers we deliver all over the UK including directly to the City of London. We therefore welcome developments such as the New Cool, ” adds Boom Transport director Boy Boom (pictured above right).

Boom delivers 30,000 shipments per annum. Marcel Moonen, site manager at Hessing Belfeld, says: “From Belfeld, we deliver daily to Belgium, Germany, Great Britain and Denmark. Our goal is to do this as energy efficient as possible and to keep our impact on the environment as low as possible. We therefore welcome this new concept, which enables us to deliver our fruit and vegetables sustainably without compromising the quality that our customers expect from us. “
