Scania P 220 with split temperature body keeps goods fresh


British organic and Fairtrade product wholesaler Essential Trading found that an increasing amount of goods required refrigeration. The company has therefore equipped its Scania P 220 with an innovative split temperature body. The truck features a standalone refrigerated box section at the front, powered by a Carrier Transicold, and a curtainside rear for transporting ambient goods.

“The refrigerated element of our business began to grow significantly three or four years ago, making a dedicated fridge section on our larger vehicles a necessity,” says Rob Baird, Transport Manager, Essential Trading. “We supply products to wholefood stores that place great emphasis on minimising waste and promoting a sustainable approach – it’s an ethos that we also try and maintain across our operation, which includes our commercial vehicle fleet.”
