• Interland Transport, the Irish subsidary of Norfolk Line, has added 17 dual-compartment controlled-temperature trailers to its 120-strong fleet.
The trailers have light FlexiPlus movable bulkhead dividers fitted with fans to separate the compartments. To allow 26 ISO pallets to be carried. 45mm Fen-oplast has been used for the sidewall construction.
Six of the trailers have Thermo King SIVE TCI refriger
ation units which allow any combination of ambient, chilled or refrigerated control in either compartment.
The remaining trailers use Thermo King SMX units which require the colder compartment to be at the front.
These are also fitted with satellite communication equipment which, regardless of the trailer's position, allows temperatures to be monitored and altered from base.
