THE NETHERLANDS, Boxtel. Distrifresh, a subsidiary of Vion Food Group, is taking steps to make its logistics processes more sustainable. An important step in this process is the purchase of cooling trailers with electrically driven cooling motors. This makes the trailer 100% emission-free. The first two of these innovative cooling trailers will be used, starting from July 2019.
Leon Cuypers, Supply Chain Director of Vion Pork, commented: “The use of cooling trailers with 100% electrically driven cooling motors is unique in the Netherlands. There are only a few companies which use them. We decided to take this step now. Using these trailers puts us at the forefront of developments in respect of new emission legislation and cleaner inner-city deliveries. The use of 100% electrically cooled trailers by Distrifresh is consistent with Vion’s Corporate Social Responsibility policy.”
