National wholesaler JJ Food Service has expanded its fleet with 20 new 7.5-tonne trucks mounted with insulated bodies and Carrier Transicold Xarios 600 mono-temperature refrigeration units.
The company, which has a fleet of 160 predominantly rigid trucks, describes Carrier Transicold’s refrigeration units as the “reliable workhorse” of its operations, and ideal for the company’s continued expansion into new regions of the UK.
“We’re opening a number of new sites this year, including facilities in Dagenham, Leicester and Newcastle,” said Mickey Montague, chief transport officer, JJ Food Service.
“Carrier Transicold will remain our preferred supplier as the fleet grows to match this increased workload, thanks in no small part to our long and productive working relationship with the company. We’ve operated nothing but Carrier for many years now – the company’s systems are the reliable workhorse of our fleet. They’re easy to operate, dependable, and ideally suited to the urban multi-drop nature of our work,” he added.
The new arrivals will be used intensively, delivering predominantly frozen goods to JJ Food Service’s customers, which include restaurants, pubs, hotels, schools, universities and local authorities.
