Carrier Transicold, a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems and a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), will be at Stand E15, Hall 27 at the International Motor Show (IAA) 2014, 25 September – 2 October, 2014. Carrier Transicold helps improve global transport and shipping temperature-controlled cargoes with a complete line of equipment for refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers. Here are five reasons to stop by its booth:
Carrier Transicold will unveil an important milestone in the development of a natural refrigerant for over-the-road transport and other customer-driven innovations and services for an efficient and sustainable cold chain. This milestone was reached through the production of a natural refrigerant trailer prototype unit, on display publically for the first time. It uses carbon dioxide (CO2), a natural refrigerant that has less impact on global warming than refrigerants currently used in conventional transport refrigeration systems. The prototype will be shown inside an exclusive “innovation lab” built within Carrier Transicold’s stand.
2. The latest Vector™ unit
The new Vector 1350 trailer unit is making its IAA debut following an international launch in November 2013. The Vector 1350 unit completes the Vector line of three specialized refrigeration units designed to suit a multitude of customer applications from long haul to distribution.
3. Pharmaceutical solutions
Carrier Transicold is also presenting its range of cold chain solutions for pharmaceutical transport, which intends to support the requirements set out in the recently published chapter “Transportation Quality & Integrity,” within the European Commission’s “Guidelines on Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use” (94/C 63/03).
4. More flexible service
In addition to displaying new products, visitors can also learn about Carrier Transicold’s enhanced full-service maintenance package, renamed everCOLD™. Officially launching at IAA, everCOLD offers customers added flexibility in the event their fleet size changes during the contract term.
5. Better service
Carrier Transicold is showcasing its new 24/7 year-round incident management service, oneCALL™, which gives customers access to an expanded network of more than 600 service points in 59 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Via a single number*, 00800 CARRIER1 (00800 22774371), Carrier Transicold customers receive prompt assistance and real-time follow-up of their case by SMS and email or online via the Web tracker service.M
