Thermo King and BPW announce collaboration

The companies are convinced that they will soon deliver to market a reliable and efficient solution making zero-emission refrigerated trailer transport a reality.

“For decades, Thermo King has considered it our responsibility to lead the refrigerated transport industry and always deliver solutions that our customers expect from us,” says Francesco Incalza, president of Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“We’re leaders in electrification. We have the largest range of zero and low-emission solutions in all segments of the market. Our customers value us for our commitment to the continuous advancement of the industry. The partnership with BPW perfectly reflects this approach and brings us closer to meeting our 2030 sustainability goals and combating exhaust, CO2 and noise pollution in our industry.”

Thore Bakker, GM trailer solutions and mobility services at BPW, adds: “In times of climate change and new traffic regulations in urban areas, the transport industry is being challenged to find new ways of doing business economically and ecologically.

“Together with Thermo King, BPW is addressing the urgent problems of refrigerated transport, where refrigeration units are still powered by a separate diesel engine. By combining our competencies as technology leaders for freight transport solutions, we can make temperature-control systems more environmentally friendly through new energy concepts in the trailer.”
