The first tradeshows of the year in the United Kingdom and Italy meant the first chance for Thermo King to personally present the new SLXi platform of single- and multi-temperature trailer refrigeration units to customers. Thermo King took full advantage of the opportunities that the Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show 2017 and Transpotec Show presented.

Demonstrating Leadership and Innovation in the UK: CV Show 2017

Transport refrigeration solutions for today and tomorrow … that was the key take-away that visitors of Thermo King’s Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show 2017 stand received. Thermo King experts showcased our most innovative solutions that help customers to meet real-world operational, environmental and emissions demands. Topping the list was the SLXi platform of single- and multi-temperature trailer refrigeration units with telematics.
Thermo King’s team of corporate and dealership staff was kept busy throughout the show visiting with customers and members of the media alike. “We were pleased to demonstrate to our UK customers how our full portfolio of diesel, hybrid and zero-emission, all-electric transport refrigeration solutions is able to meet today’s expectations and answer industry demands in areas of sustainability, intelligence and connectivity – ultimately improving customer’s environmental footprint while simultaneously decreasing their total cost of ownership,” said Donal Cox, TK regional director UK and Ireland.

“Attendance was the best I’ve seen in many years, and I estimate close to 200 people at our customer ‘meet and greet’ evening,” said Steve Williams, UK sales manager. “The CV Show is a great platform for networking and building relationships for future sales. Our stand, with its open concept and showing of our full range of combined products and services, was a great stage to do just that.”

Transpotec 2017 Show in Italy

The SLXi was officially introduced to Italian customers in late February during the Transpotec Show in Verona, the top transportation and logistics event in Italy. This was the premiere appearance of the new range of single- and multi-temperature trailer refrigeration units and Thermo King made quite an impression. Customers were happy to see the unit first-hand and were excited to learn more about the new telematics capabilities that come with the SLXi.

Supporting Thermo King at the show were Marco Tosi, sales manager, Italy and Israel; Pierfranco Libe’, area service manager, Italy, Israel & Malta; and Claudio Zanframundo, regional director, South-West Europe, as well as representatives from our Italian dealerships. “We were pleased with the show traffic to our stand. Nearly all of the largest Italian customers visited and were eager to hear more about our latest offerings including the SLXi platform,” said Tosi.
