North America has the most advanced cold chain on the planet, some say. Now the technology for cooling transported goods is adapting. It is moving further into electrification and other means to spur deployments of zero-emission transport refrigeration units, manufacturers said.
Industry and government representatives addressed the changes during the TRU Workshop at Advanced Clean Transportation Expo (ACT) Expo, which runs through Sept. 2.
Thermo King, a unit of Trane Technologies, announced Aug. 30 it will invest $100 million to deliver a fully electric product in every segment of the cold chain by 2023.
