UK-based bakery chain Greggs has equipped three of its trucks with Thermo King hybrid refrigeration systems.
Greggs, which serves more than six million customers a week, is among the first companies in Europe to employ the hybrid Thermo King systems.
The nose-mounted T-Series Hybrid and under-mounted UT Hybrid refrigeration units can switch between diesel or electric operation, which makes them ideal for use in urban areas.
“Thermo King units have been our systems of choice for several years now. Their units have delivered good flexibility and work efficiency to our operations,” said Richard Penna, group logistics manager at Greggs.
“It is paramount for us to operate in inner cities with as little noise and emissions as possible; it was a natural choice to work with Thermo King and equip our trucks with these new units.”
As well as reducing the company’s environmental impact, the new Thermo King refrigeration units will also help reduce the cost of Greggs’ transport operations.
