Cooler than an Ice Road Trucker

South Kirkby, West Yorkshire, UK: The Ice Co has specified its first four Carrier Transicold Vector 1550 fridges for its fleet. The Carrier units have E-Drive, all-electric technology, and are fitted to bespoke tri-axle trailers from Schmitz Cargobull.

Trevor Hudson, managing director, The Ice Co Storage & Logistics says: “The right technology is clearly essential, but you can never underestimate the value of good service and the confidence you need to have in the service provider,”

8e138623fa932598_400x400arCarrier will maintain the fridges under contract and also supply a dual view trailer bulkhead-mounted digital temperature display. This has a reverse image option to enable drivers to view temperature readings through their rear view mirror while on the road. This equipment also provides an instant cooling cycle status and warning alarm notifications.

Based in West Yorkshire, The Ice Co Storage & Logistics operates a third party logistics service from three UK cold stores managing deliveries into retail distribution centres and groupage work for wholesalers and catering companies.

The new Vector 1550 are the first order from Carrier Transicold to join The Ice Co fleet of 24 trucks and 46 refrigerated trailers.
