Scania P 220 with split temperature body keeps goods fresh
9 SEPTEMBER 2020
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.”
