Low-emission Temperature Controlled transportation

A new way of powering the reefer engine can make temperature control in trailers carbon free. Keeping products at the right temperature is increasingly important. The current diesel-powered solution is not meeting the sustainability goals the mobility sector aspires. A new concept with an electric Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) that is battery-powered has the potential to decrease emission with 99%(1) and is worth exploring.

Sustainable journey: the urgency of zero-emission temperature controlled trailers

Keeping products at the right temperature is increasingly important. The current diesel-powered solution is not meeting the sustainability goals we aspire to in the mobility sector. That is why TIP is actively looking into electrical Trailer Refrigeration Units (TRU) that can operate with zero emission. Global warming calls for industry change The European Union calls upon major industries to invest in sustainable solutions. For logistic services this means we strive to cut carbon emissions to reverse the effect of climate change.

European trailer market Lead-Times index, presented by TIP

It has been one “roller coaster” of a year for the transportation industry. Since 2021, the European trailer industry has been influenced by major external events. Trailer prices are the highest they have ever been in the last 25 years and we are dealing with a diseconomy of scale where the higher the demand is, the higher the prices are. What happened to the industry? What is the status of the market? What are the forecasts for 2022?

Sustainable journey: challenges and solutions

To prevent a “climate catastrophe”, keeping temperature rises within 1.5°C is required, according to scientists. To come to solutions, world leaders met once again in Glasgow last year for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). One of the four main goals of this summit is the 1.5°C pathway, to secure global net-zero by mid-century and thus, reverse the impact of carbon emissions on climate change. Once again, governments have pointed fingers at emissions from road transports.
