Leading commercial vehicle company Marshall Fleet Solutions is to supply temperature-controlled transport operator EWT Dartford Ltd with nine Thermo King Advancer A400 Systems for its new single compartment trailers.
Considered the quietest, most fuel-efficient system on the market, the Advancer A400 will deliver maximum performance and significant cost-savings for EWT’s refrigerated fleet, through Thermo King’s market-leading engine-driven technology.
Thermo King’s built in connectivity will ensure performance can be tracked at all times.
The systems will be supplied, installed, and maintained by Marshall Fleet Solutions, Thermo King’s longest standing provider in the UK.
EWT has specialised in the transportation of fresh produce for over 100 years. Based in Dartford, Kent, the company operates a fleet of over 50 temperature-controlled vehicles delivering fresh, frozen, or chilled produce throughout the UK.
EWT also provides logistical ‘Fresh Service’ solutions through its storage and distribution services.
Steve Flutter, General Manager at EWT, said: “As part of our future growth strategy, we worked closely with Marshall Fleet Solutions by using a demo trailer on our fleet. After a highly successful trial period, we chose the Advancer A400 due to its unrivalled fuel savings, its reliability, and its technological connectivity.”
Maria D’Andrea, National Sales Manager for Marshall Fleet Solutions, said: “One of the most challenging elements of running a temperature-controlled transport fleet is the rising cost of fuel. We teamed with EWT to demonstrate how the Advancer A400 could play a significant future role in their refrigerated trailer fleet. The results spoke for themselves, and we are delighted to now be actively involved with EWT as part of its ongoing fleet efficiency growth plans.”
