The two mono-temperature Vector 1550 units are mounted to 13.6-metre Gray & Adams tri-axle reefers and will run out of a Glasgow depot, delivering chilled milk across Scotland and northern England.
The reefers join five tractor units and six trailers at GSM Transport, all of which operate with Carrier Transicold temperature-controlled systems.
Jim Morrison, owner of GSM Transport, says: “The beauty of the Vector range means you can pick the most efficient model for the application.
“We’ve got more powerful Vector 1950 MT systems on our multi-temperature contracts, but for dairy operations the Vector 1550 units are ideal. I just like the way Carrier Transicold works; I’ve always had good service.”
The Vector 1550 systems feature Carrier Transicold’s patented E-Drive all-electric technology, which can reduce refrigerant leak rates by up to 55%, so cutting CO2 emissions.
The E-Drive means the unit has fewer serviceable parts, reducing maintenance and downtime, and helping to deliver precise temperature control of +/- 0.8 degrees C.
The Vector 1550 also helps to maximise payload potential, weighing just 704kg.
