Carrier Transicold will commemorate 50 years of innovative transport refrigeration systems this month.
Today, there are more than 1 million Carrier Transicold refrigeration units installed, helping to preserve, protect and extend the global supply of food and pharmaceuticals over the ocean, road and rail. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“For half a century, Carrier Transicold has been a global leader in transport refrigeration supporting the safe transport of food, medicine and other perishables worldwide,” says David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration Systems. “Building on a strong legacy, Carrier Transicold is well positioned for the future with a broad portfolio of products and services that meet customer needs and address increasing transport refrigeration demand as the global population grows, ages and urbanizes.”
Carrier Transicold was created in 1970 when Carrier acquired Transicold Co. and combined it with its Special Products Division, which pioneered ocean-going container refrigeration in 1968. Carrier also had experience in truck refrigeration applications dating back to 1940. Today, Carrier Transicold supports a sustainable cold chain through container refrigeration, truck and trailer refrigeration, and an expansive parts and service network, the company says.
Nearly 80 percent of seaborne perishable cargo moves by refrigerated containers, and the majority of those containers are efficiently temperature controlled by Carrier Transicold systems. In its history, Carrier Transicold says it has sold more than 1.3 million front-wall container refrigeration units and developed innovations to improve cargo protection, environmental sustainability, performance and efficiency.
Carrier Transicold also provides parts and related service support through a global network of dealers, service providers and parts depots. The company says it continues to innovate by introducing products that reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency, while maintaining the reliability it has been recognized for over the past 50 years.
