Developing innovative cold chain solutions is ingrained in the culture of Carrier Transicold, where respect for the cold chain is crucial to ensure perishable, fresh and frozen goods are delivered in optimum condition to customers.
The E-DRIVE all-electric technology removes mechanical transmissions found in belt-driven technology by transforming engine power into electricity.
For our customers, it is essential to optimally transport temperature sensitive cargo and deliver quality. The AdvanTE³C Solutions Centre is a global group of experts in efficiency and environment focused on developing sustainable transport solutions.
Our research will lead in the future to the introduction of new technologies, to continue redefine the cold chain.
The ECO-DRIVE is a power module, which is fitted to the side of the truck's chassis. 400 volt / 50 Hz is delivered and constantly available. This pump is connected to the truck engine via a PTO (power take off). The hydraulic system drives a generator located inside the power module delivering a constant 400 volt / 50 Hz.
A control is integrated within the hydraulic system, called X-Flow. This innovative system operates independent of the truck’s engine speed and ensures 100 % capacity is always available. The system communicates with the CAN bus of the truck.
Keeping your cold chain cost effective is a major challenge. While on the road, it’s important to minimize energy consumption while maintaining performance.
Carrier Transicold offers a wide range of solutions to preserve freshness, ensure safety during transport and enhance the overall appearance and quality of food and beverage retail.
Major global events such as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21) and the Montreal Protocol 2016 Kigali Agreement have focused the international spotlight on a more rapid move towards low emissions and cleaner energy.
As a result, the pace of change in the transport refrigeration sector is high, and fleet owners must understand important new legislation being introduced to improve environmental protection.
At Carrier Transicold it is our mission to help make the world a better place to live. Our transport refrigeration systems have long served an important need, delivering food and other temperature-sensitive goods. It’s a heritage we’re proud of and one that we intend to build further with more sustainable and innovative transport refrigeration solutions.
Our teams are working hard to develop new technologies and services to meet the challenges ahead. From an operations perspective, we believe that reducing the environmental impact needs to be done while maintaining efficiency levels. As not every new solution brought to market will suit every fleet, we are focused on providing a range of solutions which can be mission-matched to each customer’s individual requirements.
Since 1 January 2015, F-Gases have been subject to a strict new European Union legislation which aims to significantly reduce the emissions from the use of fluorinated gases.
Commercial vehicles used in road transport are subject to strict regulations which keep their emissions levels in check, with the latest vans and trucks meeting Euro VI standards.
However, the engines powering transport refrigeration units have typically been regulated differently until now.
Urban noise can have a serious effect on quality of life; it can make hearing, concentrating, and working more difficult, as well as potentially disturbing sleep, which can result in stress and fatigue.
ATP is the name given to the agreement on the International Transport of Perishable Foodstuffs, which was originated by the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Committee for Europe (UNECE) in 1970-71.
