DFDS trials electric reefers

London, UK: DFDS is to trial an electric trailer fridge developed by Sunswap.

The demonstrator fridge, which uses electric refrigeration with battery and solar power, is expected to be in use next year with DFDS.
   
Eddie Green, DFDS’s head of cold chain UK and Ireland, said: “We can eliminate emissions from our trucks operating our cold chain services. 
 
“I am confident the deployment with Sunswap will be a success and am looking forward to seeing how their trailer works within our operation. We are committed to investing in innovative technologies that support a better climate. If everything goes as planned we are in a position to place an order straightaway.
