FreshLinc takes Thermo King

Spalding, UK: FreshLinc has upgraded its reefer fleet with 60 new Thermo King SLXi fridges.

The SLXi fridges have TK BlueBox telematics compatible with third party telematics so allowing FreshLinc to connect the units to its existing network.

“At FreshLinc, over a half of our trailer fleet is refrigerated and a good percentage of these trailers feature Thermo King units,” Andy Marchant, fleet engineer, FreshLinc, said pictured above on the right.

“Right now, we are expanding our European business and we needed to grow our fleet. Thermo King SLXi technology met all our requirements and our strong and long-standing relationship with Thermo King Northern in the UK helped us to make a quick decision.”

“We have worked closely with FreshLinc for many years now, and throughout this time we have committed to make sure the utilisation of their Thermo King equipment is as high as possible. We are delighted to see that we are expanding the Thermo King range of units in the FreshLinc fleet,” said Andrew Davis, head of sales at Thermo King Northern, pictured above on the left.

”I have worked closely with Andy Marchant to make sure all FreshLinc’s needs and requirements are understood and met. As part of the overall agreement, we will be supplying a newly released Thermo King Advancer A-400 unit to allow FreshLinc to evaluate its performance and give us their valuable feedback. We truly believe in relationships and it’s important for me to say that FreshLinc can count on our local and nationwide aftermarket back up and support.”
