Thermo King hosts Galway event to drive transport efficiency

Galway, Ireland: Thermo King is hosting an event today to showcase how it is helping transporters meet their energy and operational efficiency objectives.

The event, “Destination: Driving Efficiency in Transportation”, will showcase breakthrough transport refrigerant systems, including vehicle-powered trucks, diesel-driven refrigeration units, self-powered temperature control units, cryogenic refrigerant units and aftermarket accessories.

Top Thermo King leaders from throughout Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa will discuss transport-related business and regulatory trends, as well as new strategies for transporters to reduce the total cost of ownership of their fleets through energy and operational efficiency.

“We collaborate with our customers to develop customised, innovative and sustainable solutions that address their business needs, keep up with industry trends and address regulatory requirements,” says Dwight Gibson, vice president of transport solutions for truck and trailer for Thermo King in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region.”We start by gaining a thorough understanding of each customer’s unique needs. We then collaborate closely with them to develop solutions that help them achieve their business objectives.”

Meanwhile Musgrave Retail Partners will receive Thermo King’s Energy Efficiency Leader Award.

Musgrave Retail Partners introduced a custom double-deck, multi-temperature trailer solution for its SuperValu stores throughout Ireland. As a result, the company expects to increase available trailer capacity by 65% and save more than €70,000 a year in staff, fuel and fleet costs.

The double-deck, multi-temperature trailer includes space for cargo at fresh, frozen and ambient temperatures. Engineers carefully designed the trailer to ensure that they met height limitations while providing enough height for optimised air circulation. A key part of the solution included maximising the airflow with customised air ducts. The unit is mounted on a high cube trailer and engineers relocated the controller to a lower level to facilitate driver access.
