Stonegate Farmers in Wiltshire has taken delivery of 15 Carrier Transicold Supra units, mounted to Volvo FM rigids fitted with Gray & Adams reefer bodies, to distribute eggs to its customers.
They are connected by Carrier’s Lynx Fleet digital platform to monitor and manage its refrigerated transport and improve logistics to boost performance and reduce total cost of ownership.
“Vehicle connectivity holds huge potential to transform the way we operate, and we see Carrier’s Lynx Fleet platform as the ideal next step for our business,” said Darren Roach, group transport manager at Stonegate Farmers.
Stonegate said Lynx Fleet also gave it access to refrigerated vehicle data such as temperature at delivery and door opening times.
The set-up provides the company with temperature-out-of-range alarms and notifications such as door openings within specified geo-fenced areas.
Tony Biggs, Carrier Transicold account manager said: “We’ve worked with Stonegate Farmers for many years and we’re delighted to retain and continue to build its trust in Carrier’s technology.”
