Eco-friendly and sustainable refrigerated transport at SITL 2021

SITL is a major annual event for transport and logistics businesses. This 2021 edition is focussing on innovation and green logistics. It is the ideal showcase for Coldway Technologies refrigeration systems which offer an eco-friendly alternative to urban last mile delivery. A refrigerated transport solution you can discover at the Sofrigam Group stand from 13 to 15 September at Paris Porte de Versailles.
 

Refrigerated transport: the challenges of urban delivery

last mile urban deliveryIt is estimated that refrigeration uses about 20% of the total electricity consumed globally. Each year, in France alone, 100 million tonnes of heat-sensitive products are delivered by refrigerated vehicles. 

The goods transport industry is the leading sector emitting greenhouse gases in France, with nearly 30% of emissions.  The last mile is the costliest link that produces the most pollution in the delivery chain. It allegedly represents between 30% and 40% of the economic costs of transport, as well as of polluting emissions.

However, the Covid-19 crisis has revealed how essential cold logistics are on an everyday basis in key industrial areas such as healthcare and food. This means rapidly growing logistics that increase delivery flows in the centre of cities, which are already congested and suffering from emissions pollution as well as visual and noise pollution.

Therefore, how do you support the growth of refrigerated transport for urban delivery in an eco-friendly way?

Coldway Technologies: autonomous, eco-friendly refrigeration supporting urban delivery

On-board refrigerated container Coldway TechnologiesHave you ever imagined that one day you would be able to safely deliver frozen, chilled or hot products to the city centre at any time of the day or night, without creating any noise or pollution?

This is what the Coldway Technologies refrigeration system renders possible: autonomous, silent and eco-friendly cold production technology, which fits on any type of container or vehicle (utility vehicle, scooter, tricycle or bicycle).

It means another model of temperature-controlled urban delivery is now possible, using alternative means of transport for low-carbon cold chain logistics.
 

Coldway Technologies is a major advance in the eco-friendly and energy transition of logistics and refrigeration thanks to 100% silent, carbon-free, green delivery solutions in urban centres"

 

Coldway Technologies refrigeration has 6 key advantages:
 

  • MODULAR: it adapts to all vehicles designed for urban last mile delivery, especially electric vehicles;
     
  • ECO-FRIENDLY: the system works with a natural refrigerant, acclaimed by government authorities as a replacement for HFCs;
     
  • QUIET: cold production is completely silent and falls well below the PIEK standard enabling deliveries at night or at off-peak hours;
     
  • EFFICIENT: the refrigeration is optimal, regulated, extremely accurate and works even in a heat wave;
     
  • AUTONOMOUS: the refrigeration is completely independent of the vehicle's batteries and does not need to be connected to them for it to work.
     
  • DURABLE: The system life is over 10 years, with over 3,000 operating cycles recorded, and the MTBF is over 6 years.
     

This refrigeration system provides a unique innovative solution to make last mile deliveries easier in the city centre, without creating a nuisance or any pollution.

An autonomous and eco-friendly refrigeration solution that has already been adopted by the food and pharmaceutical transport sectors, such as Gandon Transports and Saveurs & Vie, whose testimonials you can discover in this special issue of Froid News.

 

The Coldway Technologies refrigeration system can be seen at the Sofrigam Group stand at SITL 2021.
