Hannon adds 80 Schmitz reefers

Dublin, Ireland: Hannon Transport has added 80 new Schmitz Cargobull reefers, all with telematics to provide a traceable cold chain for food and horticultural deliveries.

The smart reefers have Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect software to monitor and record location and temperature data. Hannon Transport’s fleet management team use the information in real time and can alert drivers if any action is needed.

Jonny Boyle, head of operations,Hannon Transport, says: “TrailerConnect gives us a huge amount of information, which means we can provide a complete readout of the temperature of goods throughout an entire journey.

“We’re accredited by the British Retail Consortium, and being able to demonstrate this cold chain visibility is crucial for our business.”
“The majority of our fleet is now Schmitz Cargobull because they are both well-built and are economic to maintain,” he says.
