McLaughlan Transport has added three more Carrier Transicold Vector HE 19 units to its trailer fleet after being impressed by the fuel-saving performance of previous units.

The latest temperature-controlled assets are again mounted to 13.6m Gray & Adams trailers and join a 70-strong fleet at the Scottish transport firm.

The Vector units combine all-electric technology with a multi-speed engine design, which Carrier said delivers up to 30% fuel savings when compared to its previous generation Vector 1950.

The system is also 19% more efficient when plugged into the electrical grid on standby, meaning that the Vector unit can help to lower diesel, maintenance and electricity costs, as well as being 3dB quieter than previous versions.

“For more than three decades, Carrier has introduced cutting-edge new products that deliver both efficiency and performance to our fleet,” said George McLaughlan, director at McLaughlan Transport.

“The Vector HE 19 is no exception, it has proved as reliable as every Carrier product that has come before it – it’s exceptionally quiet, easily serviceable and offers significant fuel savings, which helps with our ongoing sustainability drive.”
