Online MBT has taken delivery of a new Daf LF rigid truck mounted with a Carrier Transicold Supra 850 refrigeration unit.
The Supra 850 unit joins a fleet of 35 refrigerated vehicles operated by Online MBT and will be used primarily to deliver large payload temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals to destinations across Europe and as far as Kiev and Moscow.
“I have been specifying Carrier Transicold units for 41 years and have gradually introduced them to Online MBT during my five years with the company,” said Conrad Garrett, transport manager, Online MBT.
“I’m continually impressed with how well engineered the units are, and the service support throughout Europe and Russia is first class. With satellite tracking and a remote temperature monitoring system in place, we can guarantee our customers at any given time that their cargo is safe and being maintained at the correct set point.”
The Daf truck has been specified with Solomon bodywork, a tail-lift and full air suspension to protect even the most delicate of loads. It is expected to remain in service for the next four years and will be on the road up to seven days a week, covering around 120,000 miles a year.
