Asda chooses Schmitz Cargobull reefers for green engineering 04 March 2010

Asda has taken delivery of 150 new dual temperature refrigerated semi-trailers from Schmitz Cargobull, for fresh food distribution.

Its trailers have been fitted with Carrier fridges and rear opening doors, and run on Schmitz's low rolling resistance Rotos axles with disc brakes.

Asda says it also went for side skirts to improve the semi-trailers' aerodynamics and cut its trucks' fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

The new trailers will operate out of Asda's regional distribution centres at Skelmersdale, Falkirk, Erith, Bedford, Lutterworth, Wakefield and Bristol.
