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.

Before putting a refrigerated vehicle into use, it must be approved by the regional health authorities.
The refrigerated unit is an insulated unit with a cooling system which makes it possible, at a mean outside temperature of +30°C, to lower the temperature inside the empty body and to maintain this low temperature as follows:
The cooling capacity of a unit is determined by a test carried out in one of the registered testing centers and certified by an official report.
Test results are valid for 6 years.
This reference must be followed by the appropriate identification marks from the following list:
In addition to the above identification marks, the date (month and year) of expiry of the approval certificate must be indicated.
