Electric Refrigerated Transport

Sustainable refrigerated transport

Description

Refrigerated trucks are essential for transporting perishable goods such as food and medicine, but they also consume a lot of fuel and emit a lot of carbon dioxide. Solar and battery powered refrigerated trucks are a promising innovation that can reduce the environmental impact of cold chain transportation.

Solar and battery powered refrigerated trucks use solar panels installed on the roof of the trailer to capture and store energy in a battery system. This energy can then be used to power the refrigeration unit and other utilities such as air conditioning and lighting. This eliminates the need for diesel generators or additional batteries that are normally used to cool the trailer. By using renewable energy from the sun, these trucks can save fuel, cut emissions, and lower operating costs.

According to some estimates, solar and battery powered refrigerated trucks can save up to 90% of the operating cost of a diesel refrigerator. They can also reduce the carbon footprint of a fleet by up to 9 tonnes of CO2 per vehicle, per year. These trucks can also provide reliable and consistent cooling for longer periods of time, as the solar panels can recharge the battery system while the truck is parked or on the road. This can improve the quality and safety of the goods being transported, as well as reduce food waste.

pharmaceutical
Pharmaceuticals: Cold chain transport is essential for the safe and effective transportation of vaccines, blood products, and other temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals. Vaccines can lose their efficacy if cold chain management fails.
food-and-beverages
Food and Beverages: Cold chain transport is used to transport perishable food items such as fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy products, bakery and confectionery items, and processed food. The cold chain helps to maintain the quality and safety of these products by preventing spoilage, bacterial growth, and other forms of contamination.
retail
Retail: Retailers use cold chain transport to ensure that their products are delivered to customers in optimal condition. This includes perishable food items as well as other temperature-sensitive products such as flowers and cosmetics.
hospitality
Hospitality: Hotels, restaurants, and catering services use cold chain transport to maintain the quality of their food items. This includes both raw ingredients as well as prepared dishes that need to be transported from one location to another.
wholesalers
Wholesalers: Wholesalers use cold chain transport to ensure that their products are delivered to retailers in optimal condition. This includes perishable food items as well as other temperature-sensitive products such as flowers and cosmetics.
importers and traders
Importers and Traders: Importers and traders use cold chain transport to import/export perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy products, bakery and confectionery items, and processed food. The cold chain helps to maintain the quality and safety of these products during transit.
