Inverness-based Williamson Foodservice has taken delivery of two new trucks, each mounted with a Carrier Transicold Supra 1150 MT unit. The new vehicles strengthen a 40-strong commercial fleet and will carry out delivery operations across northern Scotland.
Williamson Foodservice has been specifying Carrier Transicold refrigeration units for more than 19 years, with the latest units mounted to new 18-tonne Volvo FE rigid chassis, fitted with Gray & Adams bodies.
The Supra 1150 MT unit is said to provide constant airflow – independent of engine speed – that supplies rapid pull-down and pin-point accurate multi-temperature set point control. The two new vehicles will be in operation up to five days a week, delivering both frozen and chilled produce, covering around 100,000 miles a year.
“We understand that we push both the trucks and fridges pretty hard. Thankfully, we also get great support from Carrier’s service partner network, so if there ever is a problem, we can rely on them to get us back out on the road quickly and efficiently,” added Williamson.
Established more than 60 years ago as a fresh fruit and vegetable distributor, Williamson Foodservice is now a full-service wholesaler. The company, which has additional depots in Glasgow and Stornoway, has a product range which includes dairy, drinks, dry store and delicatessen.
