Cartwright launches airfreight fridge trailer

Cartwright Europe has launched a new fridge trailer specifically designed for the air cargo market in continental Europe.

Cartwright said its engineers have been developing the new air cargo fridge trailer over the past nine months with the aim that it will provide an alternative option to the air cargo industry in the Benelux region and across European.

In terms of capacity, the fridge trailer can accommodate 33 Euro pallets or 2 x 3,000 mm high and 2 x 2,900 mm high air cargo pallets.

The new trailer has been designed to can carry various products ranging from pharmaceutical items, general freight and different configuration air cargo pallets, the company said.

The trailer offers a 15 ton kingpin, which connects the trailer to the tractor, with a high tensile steel chassis neck to allow for a maximum payload.

Internal panels are designed and manufactured by Cartwright to achieve an internal width of 2.495 m with low thermal conductivity and high insulation.

The fridge trailer’s profile roof provides a maximum internal height.

Jeroen Kusters, sales manager of Cartwright Europe, said: “We have identified that there is a need for a new player in the sector and we believe this new Cartwright fridge trailer can fill this gap in the market.

“This trailer can carry almost anything and, because it is destined to be air cargo, it will usually be expensive items or goods needing to be sent to their destination as quickly as possible.

“We already have a demonstration trailer of the new air cargo fridge product which is   currently being shown to prospective customers in the Benelux region.

“Our next step this year will be to demonstrate the fridge trailer in Germany where we believe there is great potential for this new trailer.”

The company’s new trailer was unveiled at a special open day at Aalsmeer near Amsterdam, with transport operators, suppliers and representatives from a diverse range of sectors including pharmaceutical and engineering attending.

The launch event was a collaboration with Cartwright’s new partner in the Benelux, Burgers Carrosserie.
