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
Hello all. Steve here!
That’s right – it’s me again. We sure have been seeing a lot of each other lately, haven’t we? Don’t worry, though – I am still not planning to take the blog away from Aunt Gertie any time soon. I just ask (very politely, may I add) to pop in whenever I have something important to say or discuss. And in that regard, this week is no exception.Read the full article
I hope everyone is having a fantastic end to the summer, with or without the help of our good old British weather!
Whatever the case, though, I'm sure most of you will be making plans of some sort by now. I don't know what it is about September that makes people want to move on from where they are and make a fresh start - maybe it's because the children are starting a new year in school. I don't know. Whatever it is, though, this time of year seems to make people think about where they are in life and what they want to achieve going forward.Read the full article
No matter how well we drive and how careful we think we are, there's not a professional driver alive who doesn't occasionally fall prey to lapsing into bad habits every now and again.
