Thermo King trade in programme for new Advancer

London, UK: Thermo King is offering UK customers a trade-in of used single-temperature trailer fridges if they upgrade to the new Thermo King Advancer A-Series.

“Thermo King wants to help transport companies’ address the impact, which the upcoming changes in fuel duty in the United Kingdom will have on their operations,” said David O’Gorman, regional sales director, Thermo King. “

“Hauliers willing to trade in and upgrade their used trailer refrigeration units – no matter the brand – can simply contact their local Thermo King dealer, replace it with a brand new Advancer unit and start benefiting from the market leading performance, temperature control, and fleet connectivity.”

Thermo King says its A-Series units are up to 30% more fuel-efficient than the market average offering the potential to completely mitigate the potential fuel cost increase expected after the withdrawal of rebated “red” diesel in April 2022.

The Advancer A-Series is available in three versions offering:

  • Up to 40% quicker pull down and up to 30% better fuel-efficiency than the market average
  • Fully variable airflow that can be regulated for each journey and cargo, and is independent from unit engine speed
  • Electronic engine speed control on the A-400 and A-500 units, which makes them the first units on the market to give complete transparency of fuel levels and fuel consumption. The fuel consumption data will be recorded, displayed, and made available remotely via telematics
  • Lower maintenance costs and enhanced serviceability compared to the predecessor
  • Future-ready power agnostic capabilities that can use diesel, axle generator, or shore power sources
  • Fleet intelligence as standard, with Advancer being the first-ever unit to offer 2 years of telematics in the purchase price.
