  • Solutions allowing transport companies to lower their environmental footprint and meet sustainability goals:
  • The safe, reliable, efficient and first in the market units from Thermo King to use R-452A refrigerant, which has about 50 percent less global warming potential (GWP) than the current refrigerant providing pre-emptive compliance with 2020 F-GAS regulations.
  • Unique in transport refrigeration today, the Thermo King CryoTech range, which involves the use of recovered and commercially available liquid carbon dioxide (R744) in an indirect open-cycle system. Estimations show that during delivery, the CryoTech-equipped trailers only use 25 percent of the total energy and generate 75 percent fewer emissions than an equal-sized domestic refrigerator.
  • FRIGOBLOCK FK 25i & FK 35i inverter controlled high-performance, fully electric refrigeration units and ultra slim line evaporators for single and multiple temperature applications, which deliver unsurpassed refrigeration capacity and energy efficiency, low emissions together with significantly reduced cost of ownership.
  • Other solutions designed with low emissions and low noise, Piek-certified solutions.
  • The importance of increasing food safety by eliminating the temperature fluctuations during the delivery of fresh and frozen produce with the support of software, telematics and control services including TracKing, OptiSet and mobile applications.
  • Stable and secure temperature-controlled environment for transport of pharmaceutical products through the comprehensive PharmaSolutions offering of first in class Good Distribution Practices (GDP) compliant equipment and services. The display will include a fully GDP compliant van featuring the Thermo King V-100 a fully electrical, vehicle powered unit.
