Carrier Transicold has achieved another industry milestone by surpassing 1.5 million container refrigeration units sold. Carrier Transicold is a part of Carrier Global Corporation, the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
“On any given day, Carrier Transicold container refrigeration units help protect more than $11 billion worth of perishable food and medicine traveling around the world,” said Tim White, President, Refrigeration, Carrier. “We introduced the industry’s first ‘picture-frame’ front wall container refrigeration unit in 1968 and have continued to innovate ever since. In 2008, we launched our PrimeLINE® unit that has led the industry for 15 years. We are focused on increasing energy efficiency, sustainability, high-quality products, services and connected solutions for our customers.”
Carrier Transicold has led the container refrigeration industry with many innovations to improve cargo protection, environmental sustainability and performance, including the NaturaLINE® unit, which is the first container refrigeration system to use the natural refrigerant carbon dioxide (CO2) resulting in an ultra-low global warming potential of 1.
To date, more than 2.5 million metric tonnes of CO2 emissions have been avoided with NaturaLINE units and PrimeLINE energy-efficient units. This is equivalent to removing more than 545,000 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from the road. The units support Carrier’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goals of reducing customers’ carbon footprint by more than 1 gigaton by 2030.
“Hitting the 1.5-million-unit milestone is possible because of the hard work of our dedicated employees and continued trust of our valued customers around the world,” said Kartik Kumar, Vice President & General Manager, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold. “Supply chain bottlenecks have meant more refrigerated units are needed than ever before, and we are proud we could efficiently ramp up production to meet this demand. We will continue to ensure that our products reach the same high standards while keeping up with the pace of the rapid growth in the refrigerated container business globally.”
