Gist chooses Carrier Transicold for reefer fleet renewal

Supply chain company Gist has chosen Carrier Transicold UK to renew its 91 strong refrigerated trailer fleet with its Vector 1550 system. The mono-temperature systems, which are mounted on 13.6 metre Gray & Adams tri-axle refrigerated trailers, will mainly be transporting chilled products across the UK for the food industry.

111gistThese trailers join a fleet of 2,500 trailers operating across Europe, predominantly in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Holland and the UK. Gist aims to keep these trailers for 12 years.

“Gist is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth, and having enjoyed a close working relationship with Carrier Transicold UK, we decided the Vector 1550 unit was the right choice to meet the needs of the business and ensure we are providing our customers with the best in cold chain performance,” said Sam de Beaux, engineering director at Gist. “In the chilled distribution world, time is of the essence. By selecting the Vector 1550 systems we can continue to maximise uptime for our customers, thanks to the units’ low maintenance requirements.”
