Hunt’s Foodservice has continued its relationship with Carrier Transicold by investing in 31 new vans and trucks all fitted with refrigeration equipment.

They include 20 3.5-tonne MAN vans and three 7.5-tonne, two 12-tonne and six 18-tonne MAN rigids, fitted with Transicold’s Pulsor 400 MT multi-temperature units and Supra 550, 850 and 1250 MT units, forming a mixture of replacements and additions to the customer’s 120-strong fleet.

Hunt’s Foodservice’s first Carrier Transicold system was a 1250 MT unit in 2015 and the company has consistently selected Supra units for new trucks ordered since.

“Our priority is maintaining the integrity of the cold chain when the doors are constantly being opened on demanding multi-drop routes, where customers are often in close proximity to each other,” said Philip Hopkins, group transport manager.

“Carrier’s systems effortlessly meet that challenge.”

Based out of depots in Sherbourne, Fareham and Bridgwater, the vehicles will be on the road up to six days a week, making deliveries of frozen and chilled goods to customers across southern England.
