BV Dairy takes two with Carrier Eco-Drive

Shaftesbury, Dorset: Chilled dairy product manufacturer BV Dairy has taken delivery of two Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks fitted with Carrier Eco-Drive fridges.

The vehicles, supplied on contract hire by Ryder, will deliver to food service wholesalers and food manufacturers, predominantly into London.

The company selected two 18-tonne Mercedes-Benz Actros 4×2 rigids with Solomon Slipstream refrigerated body design and Carrier Eco-Drive fridges.

Charis Lewis, logistics and distribution manager at BV Dairy, said: “With the Carrier Eco-Drive, we have an electric fridge but with the peace of mind that it can run on diesel. In the eventuality of one of our drivers being stuck out overnight somewhere, then the produce would be kept chilled if the electric fridge couldn’t be charged.”
