Bakery wholesaler BAKO has taken delivery of 24 new rigid trucks, mounted with a combination of Carrier Transicold Supra 1150 multi-temperature systems and engineless Iceland units.

BAKO’s new Carrier Iceland units are each fitted to 18-tonne and 26-tonne Scania L-320 rigids, with the ability to power the refrigeration units via the truck’s engine and help reduce fuel usage.

In addition, Carrier said the new Supra 1150 MT units, mounted to 26-tonne Volvo FM rigids, featured insulated box bodies built by Gray & Adams.

These replaced older vehicles in its temperature-controlled fleet and it added that they represent the first time BAKO has selected Carrier Transicold’s engineless technology.

“No matter the type of unit, we have always found that Carrier Transicold offers one of the most complete packages in relation to innovation, performance, price and product availability,” said Tony Cookson, BAKO transport manager.

“We’re excited to see how Carrier’s engineless technology will help the business through reducing fuel costs, as well as delivering excellent sustainability benefits through reduced emissions and significantly quieter operation.”
