The Institute of Refrigeration is hosting a London TechTalk on sustainable refrigeration road transport and reducing the environmental impact of the cold chain on 7 March.
Dr Christina Francis from London South Bank University won the IOR’s Ted Perry award last year for her research into carbon emissions from Direct-Drive Last mile Refrigerated Vehicles and will talk about the research project and its impact for the future of the refrigerated road transport system in London.
Customers and representatives from Panasonic joined the Logicool team for a karting challenge at Daytona Racing in Tamworth to commemorate the distributor's 10-year anniversary.
With 30 participants, racing was very competitive and winners of the one-hour endurance race were long-term customer Paul Hetherington, from Intermech, and his race partner, Steve Hardiman from Logicool. Marc Newbold and Alister Bolstridge of Aircon Services Tamworth (a company which has been purchasing equipment for every one of the 10 years Logicool is celebrating), came in a close second and another long-term client, John Lewis of Brookair Danfab, and his karting partner, Dan Lewis of Logicool, were third. Hadyn Oxlyn and Indi Thamvithian from Panasonic were awarded the wooden spoon trophy for receiving the most black flags and driving over the grass verges during the race.
