16th February 2017

Transportation solution businesses Thermo King and FRIGOBLOCK of Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, will welcome visitors at the stand E 5.2 in Hall 11 of the Transpotec show in Verona, Italy and showcase real transport refrigeration solutions for today and tomorrow.

“We’re at a unique position to offer our customers a complete portfolio of diesel, hybrid and zero-emission, all-electric solutions that suit all transport refrigeration applications from truck, trailer to home delivery vans,” said Marco Tosi, area sales manager Italy and Israel at Thermo King. “Thermo King and FRIGOBLOCK are constantly innovating to provide solutions of the future, while our existing portfolios already meeting the expectations and demands in terms of sustainability, intelligence and connectivity.”

A highlight on the Thermo King stand at Transpotec show in Verona will be the Italian premiere of the new SLXi range of single- and multi-temperature trailer refrigeration units that delivers up to 20 percent[1] fuel savings and telematics as standard.

The SXLi range includes customisable operational parameters to meet customer needs, their application and ambient conditions. The customized profile conditions create optimized performance and fuel savings of 10 to 20 percent, compared with the predecessor.

The SLXi is the industry’s first fully telematics-enabled refrigerated trailer unit, delivering full visibility of the unit and load condition with Thermo King’s new TK BlueBox communication device and Bluetooth® as standard.

The TK BlueBox collects and stores unit data, which can be accessed through a free app on smart phone or Bluetooth-enabled device. This provides two-way communication that enables real-time unit management and access to critical data. Users can manage defrost, pre-trip, set point and additional operating mode settings remotely, without a contract or subscription.
