A fleet of 273 Carrier Transicold Vector 1850 MT and 1950 MT vehicles have helped Waitrose achieve a near-perfect availability rate during the first quarter of 2015.

The performance of the Vector units, which represent half of Waitrose’s temperature-controlled trailer fleet, maintains the pattern of Waitrose’s record 99.72% availability in 2014.

The most recent order in December 2014 brought an additional 80 Vector 1950 MTs delivered over a 12-month period, each mounted to a Gray & Adams triple-compartment reefer trailer and equipped with Carrier’s DataCOLD™ 500T temperature recorders.

“Vehicle uptime is critical to our business,” says Simon Gray, Vehicle Engineering Manager at Waitrose. “Carrier Transicold’s Vector units have been performing well year-round, even on days when the ambient temperature has been particularly high.”
