NFT cuts emissions with new aero trailers 09 January 2019

Adding 40 new aerodynamic Schmitz Cargobull fridge trailers to its fleet

NFT Distribution, EV Cargo’s temperature-controlled logistics company, is set to cut fuel use and emissions with the addition of 40 new aerodynamic Schmitz Cargobull fridge trailers to its fleet. The new trailers feature a light and robust semi chassis, which weighs significantly less than a full chassis trailer. This increases payload potential, offering operational benefits and reducing NFT’s impact on the environment.

In addition, a heavy-duty, self-supporting floor means the trailers sit 85mm lower than traditional units helping to reduce drag and further cut fuel consumption.

The trailers have also been equipped with aerodynamic body kits, including side skirts and roof diffusers, because they will be used primarily for motorway and trunking work. NFT expects these additions to further reduce emissions by up to five per cent.

NFT will be running these trailers for eight years, so the benefits will definitely add up.

Schmitz Cargobull has also incorporated a tyre pressure refill system, which monitors tyre status and automatically maintains each tyre at the optimum inflation level, increasing safety, extending tyre life and further reducing fuel costs.

The new trailers will work across NFT and EV Cargo’s UK network and be used for chilled, ambient and frozen food and drink deliveries, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
