Best Van Innovation: CoolKit Refrigerated Box Body

Judging comment:

“For many temperature-controlled van users, payload is king. CoolKit carried out an evaluation of different body structures within the food delivery market and found new methods of construction, with new materials that have saved up to 150kg of load capacity. CoolKit has used honeycomb section, with high density blown PET and sheet-textured GRP flooring to reduce body weight, providing an impressive extra 1.5-tonnes of carrying capacity for a customer with 10 vehicles.”
