Swindon-based OPX Logistics has added ten refrigeration units to its fleet in a move aimed at cutting its emissions and helping it acheive its aim of eventually becoming net zero.
The ten Thermo King SLXi refrigeration unit systems, which were supplied by Marshall Fleet Solutions, have been fitted to newly purchased solar-powered refrigerated trailers supplied by Gray & Adams.
Developed by Thermo King, the SLXi refrigeration units are designed to deliver ultra-fresh cargo to tight schedules while cutting operational costs and CO2 emissions by lowering emissions, waste, and noise pollution.
OPX Logistics currently has a fleet of 70 vehicles that range from Scania trucks to Euro 6 trucks. The company said it has a strategy of expanding its operations with environmentally-friendly vehicles to help it ensure an emission-free future.
