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.

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.Read the full article
I hope you're having an excellent start to your summer and enjoying the balmy weather. After all those months of winter, we deserve it!
Just because it's warm, though, it does not mean you should drop your professional standards. A courier should be just as diligent in summer as they are in winter, and whatever rules they observe then, they should observe year round – particularly when it comes to road safety.Read the full article
