EWT Dartford takes Thermo King Advancers

Dartford, UK: EWT Dartford has taken nine Thermo King Advancer A400 Systems for its new single compartment trailers.

Marshall Fleet Solutions supplied the systems considered the quietest, most fuel-efficient system on the market, Marshall says.

The Advancer A400 systems, which will be maintained by Marshall Fleet Solutions, will deliver maximum performance and significant cost-savings for EWT’s refrigerated fleet, through Thermo King’s engine-driven technology and telematics connectivity.

EWT operates 50 temperature-controlled vehicles delivering fresh, frozen, or chilled produce in the UK as well as storage and distribution services.

Steve Flutter, general manager, EWT, said: “As part of our future growth strategy, we worked closely with Marshall Fleet Solutions by using a demo trailer on our fleet. After a highly successful trial period, we chose the Advancer A400 due to its unrivalled fuel savings, its reliability, and its technological connectivity.”

Maria D’Andrea, National Sales Manager for Marshall Fleet Solutions, said: “One of the most challenging elements of running a temperature-controlled transport fleet is the rising cost of fuel.

“We teamed with EWT to demonstrate how the Advancer A400 could play a significant future role in their refrigerated trailer fleet. The results spoke for themselves, and we are delighted to now be actively involved with EWT as part of its ongoing fleet efficiency growth plans.”
