Reed Boardall Takes Delivery of 60 Trailers with Vector® S15 Units
Dawsongroup truck and trailer has recently partnered with Carrier Transicold and Gray & Adams to provide our customer Reed Boardall with 60 trailers with Vector® S15 units – to help reduce carbon emissions and fuel consumption.
The Yorkshire-based temperature-controlled distributor is the first UK customer for this all-new mono-temperature product. The new Vector S15 units could save more than 600 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions a year through reduced fuel burn.
The new mono-temperature Carrier Transicold Vector S15 units were selected by Reed Boardall after a comprehensive trial that involved precisely evaluating their levels of fuel economy and cooling efficiency.
“Increasing sustainability is a core goal for us, but it is imperative that any new refrigeration products we introduce into the fleet also deliver the optimum operational performance,” said Stevland Town, Managing Director of Reed Boardall’s transport division.
“Detailed analysis of the new Carrier Transicold Vector S15 in particular showed outstanding potential to greatly reduce our carbon footprint and help us reach our sustainability goals. We’re excited to see how those rewards pan out over the coming years.”
Carrier Transicold’s new semi-electric Vector S15 delivers high standards of performance, with a multi-speed engine design that offers 15kW of cooling capacity, while significantly reducing fuel consumption.
At 700kg, it is the lightest trailer unit in its segment, as well as one of the quietest in the Carrier Transicold Vector range. The Vector S15’s open architecture and ease of access also make maintenance more convenient, which helps to keep workshop downtime to a minimum.
“It is always rewarding to see the operational and sustainability benefits our technology can unlock,” said Scott Dargan, Managing Director UK & Northern Europe, Carrier Transicold.
“We stand by the performance of each Vector unit and what the solution can deliver for customers looking to lower the carbon footprint of their fleets.”
