The company fits Carrier Transicold units across all of its fleet of 160 predominantly rigid trucks and regards them as the “reliable workhorse” of its operations.
The new units will be predominantly used to deliver frozen goods to JJ Food Service’s customers, which include restaurants, pubs, hotels, schools, universities and local authorities.
The company expects to keep the Isuzu ‘Forward’ N75.190 trucks – which feature Paneltex bodies – in service for up to five years, and will utilise Carrier Transicold’s network service partners for its maintenance requirements.
“We're opening a number of new sites this year, including facilities in Dagenham, Leicester and Newcastle,” said Mickey Montague, chief transport officer, JJ Food Service.
“Carrier Transicold will remain our preferred supplier as the fleet grows to match this increased workload, thanks in no small part to our long and productive working relationship with the company. We've operated nothing but Carrier for many years now – the company’s systems are the reliable workhorse of our fleet. They’re easy to operate, dependable, and ideally suited to the urban multi-drop nature of our work.”
