Clive Cowern Transport said it had boosted its fleet sustainability after it ordered 10 new Carrier Transicold temperature-controlled Vector units.

The Shropshire firm’s nine Vector HE 19 and one Vector 1550 units are mounted to 13.6-metre temperature-controlled trailers from Chereau and Schmitz Cargobull, respectively.

All 10 are backed by Carrier’s telematics package and replaced older competitor-cooled assets, cementing Carrier’s position as the company’s main refrigerated equipment supplier across its 53-strong mixed commercial vehicle fleet.

“The accurate refrigeration and premium fuel performance we saw from our first Carrier unit was outstanding, so when it came to the latest order, they were our obvious first call,” said operations manager Tony Jasper.

“The combination of Carrier’s trailer technology and telematics offering means we’re seeing fuel efficiency far beyond what our previous supplier’s products could manage.”
