The Exchange team congratulates Innovation winners

Haulage Exchange was proud to present the 2014 Motor Transport Award for Innovation to Carrier Transicold and Sainsbury’s at the  awards event in London on Wednesday, July 2nd.

The collaboration scooped the Innovation Award for the implementation of Carrier Transicold’s NaturalLINE eco-friendly refrigeration system into Sainsbury’s temperature controlled fleet as part of the company’s ambitious sustainability plan. The judges thought the system to be a “potential game changer”.

Sainsbury’s calls the system the ‘world’s first naturally refrigerated trailer’ for food transportation, which uses carbon dioxide to transport frozen and chilled foods in a cool environment. The supermarket chain says the new trailers could save more than 70,000 tonnes of CO2 in comparison to its current HFC-refrigerated fleet.

Haulage Exchange is proud to have been Official Sponsors for the Innovation Award for the second year running. Our team stood alongside stalwarts like Bridgestone and Isuzu as representatives of the most respected in the industry.

Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail. I was saying I think it's a lesson for the Post Office not to get smug and to actually update their prices.
