THERMO KING TESTS BATTERY-POWERED REFRIGERATED TRAILER

In support of its commitment to deliver all-electric, zero-emissions solutions for every segment of the end-to-end cold chain, Ireland-based Thermo King, a Trane Technologies brand, announced it has completed initial testing of its evolve electric trailer with both Walmart and Loblaws.

During more than 2,500 hours of operation, the battery-powered refrigerated trailer unit reportedly provided excellent climate control and zero direct emissions, offering retailers and logistics providers the means to significantly decarbonize the cold chain.

“With thousands of refrigerated trailers using diesel fuel today, we have the ability to make a meaningful difference when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” says Fernando Cortes, senior vp of transportation for Walmart U.S. “We were pleased to work with Thermo King on the testing of our first-ever refrigerated trailer operated primarily on battery electricity in the U.S. as we look for solutions to achieve zero emissions by 2040.”
