Carrier Transicold units for Timothy Taylor’s

21 December 2023 #Truck

Timothy Taylor’s brewery has taken delivery of two new temperature-controlled trailers, each configured with a Carrier Transicold Vector 1550 unit.

Continuing a working relationship dating back more than 20 years, the trailers join a 100% Carrier-cooled fleet used to deliver the brewery’s full range of beers to customers across the UK.

The Carrier Transicold Vector 1550 units are each mounted to 13.6-metre Lawrence David trailers, replacing older equivalent Carrier products in Timothy Taylor’s mixed commercial vehicle fleet.

They will operate Monday through Friday from the company’s brewery in Keighley, Yorkshire, which has been its home since 1858.

According to Carrier Transicold, the Vector 1550 provides exceptional pull-down speeds and accurate set-point control.

Each Vector 1550 features Carrier Transicold’s E-Drive all-electric technology, which removes mechanical transmissions found in belt-driven truck and trailer refrigeration systems.

Timothy Taylor’s will use its on-site solar panels to power the new Vector units overnight to maximise sustainability potential and streamline fleet operations.

The customer’s new units are also backed by Carrier Transicold’s BluEdge fixed-cost full-service maintenance package, which includes annual temperature control testing and certification, full F-Gas regulatory checks and access to the company’s 24/7 incident management service.

In addition, Timothy Taylor’s new assets contribute to Carrier Transicold’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goal of helping its customers avoid more than one gigaton of GHG emissions by 2030.

Chris Weatherill, Transport Manager at Timothy Taylor’s said: “They keep our beers between 10°C and 12°C, allowing for the correct conditioning that gives our ales their clean and crisp flavour.”
