Traditionally, loading and unloading refrigerated transport required a great deal of planning. With a single refrigeration unit at the front of the trailer keeping the frozen goods frozen, and cool air making its way back through the trailer to fresh and dry goods.
In order to meet the requirements of our clients for flexibility in loading and scheduling approximately half of the South West Express fleet has been configured to support three different temperature zones within the trailer,
This approach offers, total flexibility in vehicle utilisation through the establish up to three fully isolated and independently temperature controlled compartments per trailer. These can be loaded in any order required to facilitate specific customer needs in unloading (freezer, chiller or ambient).
Another key advantage of Multi Temped trailers, is their ability to control the temperature along the full length of the trailer. This is advantage is most evident when transporting a full load of frozen goods. While conventional chillers may have struggled to control the temperature along the full length of a trailer, South West Express’s multi temped trailers handle this requirement with ease.
