Brussels, Belgium, 9 April, 2013 -New ColdCube™ containers from Thermo King provide powerful mobile cooling and freezing solutions that can be easily moved between different field applications. These lightweight, durable, flexible solutions can be loaded relatively quickly into a standard van or truck and powered by the vehicle battery, or once unloaded, the containers can be plugged into a standard wall outlet for continuous cooling.
Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, offers three ColdCube™ container sizes, each available in cooling and freezing models, to fit a variety of business needs.
“ColdCube™ containers provide a simple way to manage temperature-sensitive cargo, providing consistent temperature management while optimizing flexibility for users,” said Gary Mullins, accessories product manager for Thermo King in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa region. “These containers are ideal for managing the transport of refrigerated and frozen cargo in mixed fleets or for initial startup companies.”
These food-grade, heavily-insulated solutions offer precise temperature control with the added flexibility of operating on both AC and DC power. ColdCube™ containers are competitively priced compared to full van conversions and offer a lower price point to businesses that need intermittent refrigeration and/or freezing capability during transport.
Potential applications for the ColdCube™ include:
● load optimization in larger vans and full-size trailers,
● small vehicles with limited capacity requirements for cooling and freezing,
● rental and leasing option for special events.
The ColdCube™ features a digital temperature controller with easy read out. With a wide range of accessories available, this solution is ideal for business applications such as catering and special events, delivery of medicines and vaccines, fresh and frozen blood bank transportation and courier services.
This flexible cooling and freezing solution provides customers with financial flexibility as well as the flexibility to either purchase or lease the unit depending on their specific needs. The Thermo King dealer network, with more than 300 service points across Europe, is available to support ColdCube™ solutions with their knowledge and expertise.
