Top 25 UK and Irish Temperature-Controlled Logistics Providers 2016 report out now

London, UK: The Top 25 UK and Irish Temperature-Controlled Logistics Providers 2016: Company ranking and market trends report, published in association with Thermo King, is now available on or

Report Cover ACold Chain News June issue, published this week, includes highlights from the report.

This report, published in book form for the third time, ranks by turnover and fleet size the top 25 providers of temperature-controlled logistics services, that include transport, distribution and storage, in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The report also includes the assessments made by a selection of these companies of the challenges that they expect the industry to face in 2016.  It also includes an overview of the food service and food wholesaler own-account sector.

The report, sponsored by truck refrigeration system manufacturer, Thermo King, is prepared by Global Cold Chain News, the UK’s leading business-to-business website used by owners, directors and senior managers working for companies operating commercial vehicle fleets used for temperature-controlled transport.

The report tables show financial performance by turnover for the past six years, (where latest data is available) the fleet size by vehicle number and type, as well as the storage capacity of each company.

The Global Cold Chain News Top 25 listing for 2016 reveals that many temperature-controlled companies with large, established cold storage operations performed well last year.  The growing shortage of cold storage space across the country is clearly a factor here. And there is little likelihood that cold store capacity will exceed demand within the next five years, which bodes well for those companies with modern warehousing.

The report is available on priced £80 or priced $115.

Thermo King V-200s

Thermo King’s recently introduced V-200s series refrigeration units

Delivery companies need to transport an ever-widening range of fresh products to meet the evolving needs and habits of their consumers. And they need to do this while looking after the environmental concerns and challenges as well as their profitability.

Thermo King recently introduced V-200s series of refrigeration units; the newest addition to the non-diesel, vehicle-powered range provides efficient and environmentally friendly transport refrigeration for small delivery vans and trucks.

The new V-200s series of vehicle-powered refrigeration systems offers the high performance and efficiency of the proven V-200 MAX series in a more compact design. The V-200s series provides optimal refrigeration capacity for vehicles up to 10m³ for frozen and up to 19m³ for fresh products deliveries.

With these new units delivery companies can simultaneously reduce the environmental impact of their deliveries, maintain cost effective operations and stay ahead of regulatory and industry standards.

The V-200s series vehicle-powered units come as standard with the next generation R-452A refrigerant that was co-developed by Thermo King and Chemours and has approximately half the global warming potential (GWP) of the incumbent R-404A.

Thermo King was the first to offer units with R-452A and the first to make this standard across its entire range of trailer, truck and small vehicle-powered units sold throughout Europe. This allows transport companies to be aligned with the European Union F-Gas Regulation designed to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases.
