Clive Cowern gets digitally connected Carrier Transicold trailer units

Published to the CV Show website on

The haulier’s nine Vector HE 19 and one Vector 1550 units are mounted to 13.6-metre temperature-controlled trailers from Chereau and Schmitz Cargobull, respectively.

These digitally enabled units are backed by a BluEdge Elite fixed cost full-service maintenance package, which includes annual temperature control testing and certification, full regulatory checks and access to Carrier Transicold’s one CALL 24/7 incident management service. All 10 units connect to Carrier Transicold’s telematics package which allows the business to remotely alter the set point or operation mode of its assets, clear any alarms, initiate defrosts and carry out pre-trip checks from any connected device around the world.

Both the Vector HE 19 and Vector 1550 units feature Carrier Transicold’s E-Drive all-electric technology, which helps to reduce refrigerant leak rates by up to 55% while also cutting carbon dioxide emissions.

Delivering a mixture of goods, including food and pharmaceuticals nationwide, the new trailers are expected to cover nearly 100,00 miles per year.

Carrier Transicold is the main refrigerated equipment supplier across Clive Cowern Transport’s 53-strong mixed commercial vehicle fleet.

Tony Jasper, Operations Manager at Clive Cowern Transport said: “The accurate refrigeration and premium fuel performance we saw from our first Carrier unit was outstanding, so when it came to the latest order, they were our obvious first call.

“The combination of Carrier’s trailer technology and telematics offering means we’re seeing fuel efficiency far beyond what our previous supplier’s products could manage.”
