Cartwright launches triple-temp double-decker

Trailer manufacturer Cartwright is launching a double-deck, triple temperature trailer as part of a plan to build market share in the temperature controlled sector as quickly as possible.

The company believes the moving deck will provide a competitive advantage. Technical director Lionel Curtis said: “Currently supermarkets generally run tri-temp straight trailers or tri-temps with a fixed double deck. We have taken what we believe is the unprecedented step of launching a triple temperature trailer with a moving deck.

“Our new trailer is in response to customer demand and effectively opens up the real possibility of tri-temp refrigerated lifting decks carrying out store deliveries. At the moment many supermarkets do store deliveries with single temps and in some cases with two temperatures with lifting decks,” he said.

The 44 pallet direct drive hydraulic lifting deck trailer has a capacity for eight pallets of frozen products and 18 pallets each of chilled and controlled ambient products.
